Lord of the Flies by William Golding is a book about a group of boys stuck on a deserted island who try to organize their own society which results in a series of events and disasters. This book portrays many different personalities and characters that are important parts of the book. One of the protagonists, Simon, has a plethora of fine qualities such as kindness, intuition, thoughtfulness, and virtue. These qualities shape Simon into a Christ-like figure. Simon is shown to be an image of Christ through his tender-hearted nature, prophetic-like qualities, and understanding of the beast within the boys.
Piggy, the only one with glasses is an outcast, not only because he wears glasses, but also because he is a “fatty”(17). Jack and Ralph do not even let Piggy finish a sentence without saying “Shut up!” which creates the feeling of pity towards Piggy and the feeling of hatred towards the other boys. Piggy also suffers from “ass-mar” giving the boys another reason to verbally harass him for his lack of fitness. Despite his problems, Piggy being the kind and generous boy continues to help start a fire by carrying branches up the mountain.
Though a strong friendship exists between him and Piggy as well, Simon does not say the same to him. As a result, Piggy becomes one of the three boys who does not live to see rescue. What's more, Golding also foreshadows Ralph’s survival as the tribe tries to take his life through Simon. Stylistically, this not only effectively provides dimension to the plot by building suspense, thickening it to better prepare for the falling action in the last chapter, it also contributes to the meaning of the text as it further highlights the tragedy and desperation in the scene of Simon’s death. Much like Christ preaching the Christian truth to the multitude only to be betrayed by Judas then crucified, when Simon attempts to inform others of the truth behind the beast from air, he is brutally murdered by the boys-including Ralph who he considers to be a valuable companion.
