In the end of the novel, Jack turns from hunting pigs to hunting Ralph. This futile pursuit exemplifies the double-sided spear of the id. Overall, the change in Jack’s character shows the never ending spiral of violence. In the beginning of the novel, Jack’s only goal is to hunt and kill a pig. He is “the most obvious leader”, and thrives on the need for violence(16).
War’s outcome is fatalities of many people. This is typically due to conflict from two opposing parties, resulting in murders. In like manner, Boll weevil is murderous as he murders Cecil by stabbing him in the chest, due to the fact that Cecil does not give him the money that Cecil owes (108). It is apparent in this quote that Boll weevil is murderous: “Then without let up, there came a rush of lively blows followed by a loud scream, a heavy thud on the floor and a scurrying of feet towards the door” (106). This quote shows that Boll weevil is capable of shooting someone (Cecil), therefore making him murderous, similarily to war.
After the boys in Jack's tribe catch and kill the pig they thought was the beast, they put his head on a spear. "Jack held out the head and jammed the soft throat down on the pointed end of the stick which pierced through the mouth. He stood back and the head hung there, a little blood dribbling down the stick." (Golding, 136-137) This is an example of how Jack's tribe react violently towards what they perceive is the beast, this act of putting a pig's head on a spear is a very violent and cruel. In the beginning when they killed a pig they never displayed the head, but do to the savagery that the beast has caused them to take on they are more cruel and deadly.
He slowly tortures Grendel and even lets him go in the hopes he bleeds to death. The desire for vengeance grows when the Geats decide to hang his arm from the rafters. Beowulf’s bloodlust is so excessive he tries to murder Grendel in the most inhumane ways, and even goes to the extent of sacrificing one of his own men to satisfy his need to kill the undying Grendel. In Atalanta, Meleager and Atalanta go hunting and caught so many animals that they even attracted Artemis’ unwanted attention. Artemis therefore grew upset and “molded a huge boar, mud-colored, with red evil eyes” (177) Atalanta and Meleager obviously slaughter an abundance of animals to get Artemis’ attention.
Stendahl is not allowed to read books and all fairy tales are non-existent. There are also people called the inspectors of ‘Moral Climates’ who make sure that nobody in the society is reading fictional books. If someone were to break this law, they can be sent to jail. In other words, the society is disapproving of imagination or anything that is fictional. To read fictional stories or anything that encouraged imagination is banned from the society.
Because the boys eventually stop accepting Ralph as their leader, the power-hungry Jack takes over and the island falls into a state of chaos. Hobbes believes that in a natural state without a government, humans are selfish, impulsive beings in a constant civil war. The solution is for
Jack is always wanting to go hunting and have a more savage “tribe”, while Ralph wishes to keep the group civilized and neat. Because they both have contrary beliefs, they butt heads and disagree very often. Readers can see this play out when a few boys (Including Ralph and Jack, who’re the main two arguing) who went off to decide if they need to let Piggy know what’s going on. “Jack cleared his throat and spoke in a queer, tight voice. ‘We mustn’t let anything happen to Piggy, must we?’” (117).
They ties into the the theme that people should not be labeled everyone should be able to be themselves because Andy is judged by everyone when he really just wants to be seen as the kind boy he really is. In addition to being judged he tries to get away for the label Royal cause he wants to be himself. “ But he squirmed and fought and twisted until one arm was free and then the other” (Hunter 7).

He has no morals and poses a physical threat to mankind. One man’s self-defense is destined in a fight against Grendel. He depicts evil as an omnipresent being and stalks all men by following them- unseen, hiding in the dark, never visible but always there. Evil is always insatiable, and there is no
Justice should always be upheld because without justice there is no way to live peacefully without constant fear of being wrongfully accused and punished out of the blue. We know the villagers act without justice when they attack the monster. “He is pursued by the ignorant villagers, who think he is evil and dangerous because he is ugly and makes ugly noises.” The lack of justice is shown through the reason they attack which is based on his appearance. They also don’t even try to communicate with the monster to gain a better understanding of the situation which means that they chose to stay ignorant. Ignorance should be avoided in judgement and the choice of judgement is what can decide one’s fate and that decision of fate shouldn’t be left to people who do not truly know the situation beyond their own
However the monster doesn’t have anybody that care for him and teach him things which makes him into the monster he is. Society doesn’t really accept either the monster of the clones because of their differences. The clones are shoved off to an old farm where they don’t really talk to the outside world and the monster is attacked whenever he tries to gain access to
