The fear he faces is expressed from different angles. In the third paragraph, Earnest talks about how he gets frightened when he lays down in the tent late at night while his father and uncle are out on the boat fishing. “Nick felt if he could only hear a fox bark or an owl or anything he would be all right. He was not afraid of anything definite as yet. But he was getting very afraid.” Here, Hemingway indicates how the sound of quietness scares him due to his expectations of something happening.
At the beginning of the novel, Paul is Fearful.For example on page 42 Paul says “I’m afraid,” Paul is very terrified. For instance in the beginning of the book, Mr. Fisher states “ Erik’s down at the other end. And you have two guest rooms in between. You guys should never hear each other,” (5) to Paul. This shows that Paul is afraid of Erik and that he wants nothing to do with him because he is afraid.
Could it be the smell of my father 's puke that lingers in my nose or the emptiness inside of me that foolishly misses him? Is it the coldness that still runs downs my bones sending shivers down my body? Perhaps it 's the weight of the pressure that lies on my shoulders?

They were evacuating during the time shortly after World War II. Some of the younger boys claimed to see a “beastie” or a “snake-thing” at night. Many people are perplexed when it comes to the query: “What is the beast and what does it symbolize?” There are numerous definitions about what the ‘thing’ haunting the children signify and it evolves throughout the book. In the beginning, the beast represents the children’s fear. “The Terrors of the Unknown” says that the children “began to people the darkness of night and forest with spirits and demons”(Doc A).
“He says the beastie came in the dark… stumbling among all those creepers…” In the story of the Lord of the Flies, a small group of boys are stranded on an island, and are being hunted by a strange “beast.” What, however, does this beast symbolize?
