In the novel Lord of the flies, the beast was one of the main conflicts. Fear is that drove the existence of the beast. Fear is what drove the existence of the beast because fear gave the boys a false illusion of the island being dangerous/evil. For instance, when the boy with the mulberry mark said he saw a snake, in reality it was vines hanging from the trees. The boys are in a new environment where everything was tainted by fear.
As the boys get closer they would get more frightened, so the boys went back to their shelters. Simon finds out about the beast Therefore Simon decided to go perceive the beast. He notices that it was the dead pilot from the plane accident. Once Simon has found out it’s not a actually it just the dead pilot with parachute. Simon quickly tries to let the boys know the actual truth by shouting " He's the beast!".
The fear within us can contribute to the actions we take, whether it be particularly good or bad. Lord of the Flies shows that this can happen to us all. Lord of the Flies is a book written by WIlliam Golding who shares with us the end of school boys’ innocence and the beginning of savagery within them all. Chapter nine, which holds many details to support Golding and this theme, is about Simon realizing who the “beast” really is and in the heat of the moment the tribe of boys brutally murder Simon when he comes bearing news about such topic. However, chapter nine is so much more than just the plot of a story.
Why things are what they are?” As Simon begins to faint the beast says, “We are going to have fun on this island!” The lord of the flies admits to Simon he is inside all the boys, he is the savagery and the evil that has a hold on them. “Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could kill!” The more wild and deviant the children act the stronger and more real the beast becomes. The beast is seen as a threat to all the boys except Simon, who understands that the beast resides in the boys. Their fear of the beast formed a connection between them until Jack manipulated their fear to create two different groups to maintain power. Savagery is a primal instinct that exists within all humans and isn't something that can be
The many deaths on the island represented a painful time, and memory, for the boys who were left. “The beastie, the beastie or the snake-thing, was real. Remember?... The two older boys flinched when they heard the shameful syllable”(Golding, 51). The birthmark boys death showed allegorical significance to the impact of the boys, and showed them what the island, and themselves, were capable of.
William Golding uses the “beast” to pose this question seriously and strike fear in the heart of the readers. The beast started as a something mysterious and scary that gave nightmares to littluns but became something that brought the evil that was hidden in the boys’ hearts. The beast symbolizes littluns’ feelings of insecurity arising from the fear of the unknown, absence of grownups and bullying behaviors of some of the bigguns. Beast was first mentioned when Piggy voiced the concern of a boy with a mulberry birthmark. “He wants to know what you’re going to do about the snake thing.” Many of the boys were ecstatic to the news that there were
At the time, they thought it was a wild creature, native to the island, but they soon figured out what the creature was the hard way. In The Lord of The Flies, the beast symbolizes fear to the boys, war in between them and human savagery. The unknown creature conveyed many personalities from the young survivors. Fear is a big part of trying to interpret what the beast is. As in most situations, the younger boys obtained more fear of the beast compared to the older ones (DOC A).
Jack can take control because every boy on the island including Ralph and Piggy have evil inside themselves. This is seen when they take part in the brutal murder of their friend Simon. Jack controls the boys by fear mongering. Jack had the ability to turn off morality and turn into a killer. When Ralph and Piggy are saying there is no monster Jack is yelling at the same time there is a beast and he will provide protection from it.
Therefore, they become like savage dogs and only think about killing. A beast rises with them and forces get worse. The boys become naturally evil and savages as their journey continues. That is why human naturally lie and the truth is not first. And that is obvious when he wrote the book.
In this quote the Lord of the Flies is explaining that they should fear the beast inside of them, not a physical creature. Finally, The Lord of the Flies represents the devil and evil on the island. It is this evil of the devil inside of each of them that turned Jack and Roger to destruction and manic. Another
