Mrs. Stevenson panics, and is killed by the intruder. 12 Angry Pigs is about a jury of 12 pigs who must decide the fate of the Big Bad Wolf. All of the pigs agree that the wolf is guilty, except for Pig #8. Pig #8 believes that the jury must examine all the evidence before making a decision. On the other hand, Pig #3 is adamant that the Wolf is guilty.
“His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink.” This quotation, also from Chapter 4, explores Jack’s mental state in the aftermath of killing his first pig, another milestone in the boys’ decline into savage behavior. Jack exults in the kill and is unable to think about anything else because his mind is “crowded with memories” of the hunt. Golding explicitly connects Jack’s exhilaration with the feelings of power and superiority he experienced in killing the pig. Jack’s excitement stems not from pride at having
Close, close, close! I 'm the reason why it 's no go? Why things are what they are… You know perfectly well you’ll only meet me down there- so don’t try to escape”(Golding 133). The lord of the flies from the head of the pig begin to talk to Simon, it explains that it is the beast and it is within the boys. When Simon goes to warn the boys about the beast, he is killed by them all.
(page _____) Simon volunteers to go to Piggy because he is the only one that is not afraid of travelling in the forest by himself. He is not afraid because he is one with nature. Unlike Ralph, Simon is capable of seeing the evil in that lurks within the boys. He regularly has fainting spells, before one of these episodes he hallucinates the Lord of the Flies, a pig head speared by a stick poking out of the ground placed by Jack, speaking to him. The pig head tells Simon about the evil that is inside the boys, and that they are capable of greatly evil things.
The conch was used to summon all the boys together. Ralph participates in the bullying of Piggy, and he allows it to continue. Overall Ralph is an extremely respectful boy. At the beginning of the story, Ralph gives Jack authority and power, so there there is equality within the group. Also, Ralph never followed the idea of hunting, because he thought it was savage, but soon learns to appreciate hunting when a boar attacked the group, and Ralph kills it.
In the story the station wagon is the wolf, as they both disguise their true nature’s behind masks of benevolence and being non-descript. Both the wolf and the car failed in their attempts to look unassuming. This is because the wolf still had his big nose, teeth and fur, while the car was covered with mud when it had not been raining for the past week. • The X-Files, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder were mentioned by Golding. This was because he saw things that were strange abandoned cars, horse, and kids.
(Slide 3) Abby: A recurring theme in Lord of the Flies by William Golding is that, People are not rational when controlled with fear of the unknown. (Slide 4) Bella: In Lord of the Flies, one of the effects of the boy's' upcoming into savagery is the pigs. The more pigs killed by the boys, the easier it is for them to cause harm or even kill one another. The mistreating of the pigs eases the process of dehumanization in the boys and eventually makes it harder for them to recognize each other's humanity. (Slide 5) Zeenat: In Chapter Seven, as the beast is being hunted they repeat the ritual with Robert as a substitute for the pig; however, they get consumed by a state of "frenzy" and actually almost kill him, further diminishing their humanity.
Scene 1—Summary (25-28): After Major dies three nights later, the animals, whereas unsure when the uprising will occur, spend their days planning the Rebellion in secret. Among the pigs who are considered the most intelligent, Snowball and Napoleon are the two leaders of the revolution. While Napoleon has a reputation for always getting what he wants despite not speaking much, Snowball is considered more eloquent and creative (25). A third pig that plays the assisting role, Squealer, is extremely articulate and persuasive, and others think of him as one who is able to “turn black into white” (26). These three pigs try to explicate the fundamentals of “Animalism,” an ideology that they develop from old Major’s teachings, to other animals through secret meetings held several nights a week (26).
Though every animal is aware of the fact that Snowball was the honest and dedicated leader but they easily got carried away by the words and the speech of Squealer. In order to justify the act of brutally killing and selling animals Squealer gives them the new song written by Minimus. Squealer very carefully chooses his words and play around them. The animals are not able to understand the hidden motive behind it and falls victim to his words. When Napoleon overthrew Snowball and became the dictator then there were some changes in the seven commandments.
He plans to play chess, but the gallery labeled “Marvelous Taming of the Steppenwolf” distracts him. He recognizes the animal tamer to himself, mean and alone. The man commands the wolf to do menial tricks like kneeling and playing dead or rolling over. This is realted to men today because if you don’t really have much people will try and make you a dog or some type of animal just for kicks, and make you feel less of a person just because you may not be in the same social class as they are go to the same places, or drive the same cars. People will treat you like dirt just because you are different.
