Ralph, in correlation with his insistence on being found and building shelter, decides to build a signal fire and places some of the boys to attend to it. This is juxtaposed with Jack wanting to hunt yet again. Jack takes the boys and uses them to assist in killing the pig, but, coincidentally, a ship passes the island while Jack has the boys that were responsible for keeping the fire going (Golding 68). This once again shows evidence of Jack’s insistence on the need to hold power. He feels that orders from Ralph don 't apply to him.
At the start of the book, Ralph and Piggy are friends, but the moment Ralph gains power, he treats Piggy with animosity to show his dominance to everyone else. Later in the book, Jack invites Ralph and his tribe to a feast. After the meal, he offers the members of Ralph’s tribe to join his group, and Ralph dissuades those who agree, by saying that he will blow the conch and call an assembly. Nevertheless, Jack replies that he and his supporters “shan’t hear it” (Golding 167). This quote shows how much the relationship between Jack and Ralph has changed over time.
Commentary on the themes of “Lord of The Flies” by William Golding. In the novel entitled “Lord of The Flies” written by William Golding there are many themes that can be discussed according to the novel’s subject matter. First of all, I would like to discuss about the theme of civilization versus savagery. This theme can be categorized as the social and psychological theme. This is because it discussed the conflict between two competing impulse that exist within all human beings.
The boys voted on Ralph, because he was the one taking charge and he played along with anyone. After scary events started to happen, Jack was misunderstanding the problem, but Ralph saw it. Ralph tried to explain to the group they have to start taking control. The boys wanted to play and be kids. Jack took advantage of this by disagreeing with Ralph.
In the novel Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, it shows that the essence of man is evil and unacceptable. A group of boys get stranded on an island where they make the most of their situation, and ultimately turn on each other. One of the boys, named Jack, proves Golding’s point that the essence of man is terrible by behaving and acting like a savage. He and Ralph frequently intervene and try to assert dominance to become the leader of their tribe. Jack shows the essence of man is corrupt by his loss of innocence, his behavior like a dictator, and his uncivilized acts.
Jack’s envy of Ralph led to his outburst his disrespect for the boys’ right of speech and the animals’ right to live. This turned him savage and impulsive. Piggy’s character was constant in the story. Piggy managed to keep his sanity, loyalty, and reason. Ralph and Jack were dynamic, because their characters developed; however, Jack grew for the worse.
By this point Jack already started to grow his hunting group and therefore grow in power. Because of this, he realizes he has enough power to create his own group and split from Ralph 's. This also shows that Jack feels like Piggy 's opinion is so unimportant compared to his that Jack goes against one of the rules he originally
The other boys join in on this attempt to kill Ralph as well. By this time in the novel all signs of civilisation are now gone. Jack was the new leader and most powerful boy on the island however, did Jack deserve the respect he was being shown? Although Jack had turned into a complete savage, Ralph had not. Even though Ralph was not completely civilised as he was when he first landed on the island, he kept some of the morals and standards that he had when he first arrived.
