Homer’s Polyphemus from the Odyssey and George Lucas’ Ewoks from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi fit this description exactly, but the Ewoks fit it better. Polyphemus, the strong, dumb, overconfident cyclops is a good villain, but then again vicious, smart, patient Ewoks are better. WARNING! SPOILER ALERT!
In the story, Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, a group of British schoolboy's evacuation plane crashes during World War II, leaving them stranded on the island. Golding emphasizes how the boys encounter their civil ways while evil emerges onto the island. Throughout the novel, William Golding's reasoning that evil comes from within was expressed through rhetorical devices describing the scene where Simon talks the the lord of the flies,
Human Cruelty In “The Lord of the Flies” we learned how cruel human beings can actually be. Then we were asked if the boys’ cruel and savage behavior was based on emotional development or the environment they were in. My opinion was that this behavior was based on the environment. In this story, school boys are being sent away from their homes to escape harm of the war zone. The plane they are in is shot down and crash lands on a mysterious island.
Beowulf was know for killing creatures that were much more overpowered that himself. Luttrell had done the best he could do in Operation Red Wings. Defeating three of the most powerful, god-like creatures on earth is far more impressive than fighting many untrained, uneducated Taliban fighters. The weapon choices made Beowulf look much stronger than Luttrell because a gun can take down much more than a sword, but Beowulf made the sword look like an overruling weapon. The only thing that Luttrell showed power in was his mind.
This shows that Piggy is insightful of the situation at hand and seeks to collaborate with the rest of the boys to certify that there is no such thing as a beast in order to fix the cause of their civilization breaking up, which is fear. Consequently, Piggy proves to be an insightful collaborator because he is intelligent through his
One who does not possess any flaws is not considered a perfect human being, but is considered as not human at all. In Doubt by John Patrick Shanley, Sister Aloysius says “In the pursuit of wrongdoing, one steps away from God. Of course, there’s a price” (58). None of the characters step away from God since they are all just human beings with flaws and good intentions. Father Flynn does not step away from God since he is a misunderstood priest that just wants to support a victimized child.
IMAGERY The novel begins with a bunch of young boys who are trapped on an island after a plane crash. Throughout the novel William Golding includes various types of imagery to accurately describe each significant place on the island the boys are stranded on. An example would be calling the place where the airplane sliced through the brush “the scar”. The most realistic use of imagery is the description of the patch of the island where the boys would burn what they intended to be a "small fire." The most popular use of imagery in the novel is “the conch”.
Falstaff is completely harmless, he does not choose a side nor defend his own, he simply does not care. But Falstaff’s apathetic character shows that there may not be a good enough reason for anyone to care about anything, and this may be the lesson he wants Hal to learn before Hal loses himself in brainwashing royal duties. Falstaff is significant because he is the control in an experiment. There are characters who are in the heat of the moment, so driven by justice, fear, or honor; in reality, as Falstaff stands on the side as a mindless participator of this nonsense, he shows that none of it
Scrutinizing Simon: An Analysis of William Golding’s Simon Simon is quite possibly the most intelligent character in the novel Lord of the Flies. His intelligence however, is not in scientific knowledge, but in an uncharacteristic sense of insight and advancement. Throughout the novel, the majority of the characters descend into savagery; forgetting civilized life and degressing into violence. While the rest of the characters represent the primal parts of humanity through their struggles and changes, Simon is the adult voice reminding readers of rational truth. In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, Simon displays traits of maturity, insightfulness, and acceptance, demonstrating that he is different from the other boys on multiple levels.
For example, in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the man accompanying Sir Gawain shows perfect knowledge of his own limits and faults. “‘... You seem to be saying you’re hell-bent on heaping harm on yourself and losing your life, so I’ll delay you no longer’” (Armitage 163). To phrase it differently, this man recognizes the headstrong pride in Sir Gawain and attempts to stray Gawain from his path. However, since Gawain refuses, this man returns to the castle unscathed due to his rational thinking and his ability to recognize and, ultimately, fix his fault. Similarly, this ability to recognize and stray from fault is a characteristic in many stories, both factual and fictional.
