Jack uses fear and manipulation to gain power over the rest of the group. "Ralph 's right of course. There isn 't a snake-thing. But if there was a snake we 'd hunt it and kill it. We 're going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody.
His good senses are replaced with chaos, disorder, and evil. With jacks evil actions the his savagery is really starting to show us that he is getting violent. Jacks use of hunting turns him into the most savage out of all the boys. Everything he did after this point made him into the young savage that he was in the end of the book. “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.
He goes to share his hunting story to Ralph and a boy named Piggy. On page 69, the narrator shares, “I cut the pig’s throat,’ said Jack, proudly, and yet twitched as he said it.” This quotation shows us that civilization is lost when the urge to kill takes over because it shows the stage where Jack is proudly killing animals, but still feeling a little bit uncomfortable with it. In this example, Jack proudly shares that he has killed, but still twitches after saying he did. Jack is still hanging onto the little bit of civilization that is left on their island. Lastly, in the end of the book, Piggy, Ralph, and Sam and Eric, a set of twins, are the only ones who have not joined a new tribe created by Jack.
Human savagery is when people do acts that are out of the ordinary. Humans are born savage because people don’t learn how to do outrageous acts. Also, savage acts are usually considered as violent which people don’t teach you, which means you learn it as you progress through life. An example of a text that demonstrates the effects of human savagery is Lord of the Flies by William Golding. At the start of this novel, the next world war was about to start, and a plane crashes on an inhabited island which kills the pilot and some of the schoolboys.
He then created his own troops and started hunting for animals. As an experienced boy scout, he managed to kill a boar and his troop celebrated together. As he has developed the feeling of rage, he did not allow any of the boy who was on Ralph side to taste the food. He also started to do bad things to Ralph and his friend by provoking them. If only he did not feel angry at the very first place, he will never develop the feeling of rage and they can survive together without causing harms to one another.
That blood made them want more. That’s all they were satisfied to see when they killed the pig, they started to act like savages. Towards the end of the novel, the boys started wanting to hurt each other like savages, they keep forgetting that it’s just a game. It was that game they play when they all get in a circle and someone has to act the pig, “Roger became the pig, grunting and charging at Jack, who sidestepped. The hunters took their spears, the cooks too spits, and the rest clubs of firewood.
He had not only killed 1 pig, but 2! He was persistent, and was he not going to stop until he ate that third little pig. The wolf already had feasted on 2 pigs, but he was greedy and wanted more. “...the wolf came down the chimney, he fell into a pot of boiling water and boiled all up” (Orchard). If he would have been content with the two
The longer they 're on the island, the more savage they become. During that time, another key character Simon, who is wise and philosophical, joins Ralph to help make covers for shelter. The young men who are supposed to tend the flame skip out on their obligations to execute a pig. The violence of the chase is all
The boys were running as fast as they could to keep up with the pig they hit with the spear. They all haven’t had meat in days and they were craving it, they were losing their innocence and becoming savages. This is one thing in the book, Lord of the Flies, that shows a loss of innocence. This is a common theme throughout this book, a loss of innocence. Some examples of this are the killing of Piggy, the hunts, the actions of the tribe, and just Jack in general.
Jack’s gruesome chant shows that he has already turned into a savage because it wasn’t necessary for him to sing such vile words, but he did it anyway. Finally, right after Jack kills Simon in a frenzy, he says, “He came – disguised. He may come again even though we gave him the head of our kill to eat.” (Golding 160). Clearly, Jack and his mask
