Piggy’s brains help the group of boys drastically because even though Ralph is calling the shots, he gets almost all his ideas from Piggy. Also, he is very reserved and never really steps up to any challenge or obstacle. Instead, he hides behind Ralph and believes he needs approval from him to do anything. Lord of the Flies, by the end of the book, is survival of the fittest, and Piggy does not have the characteristics to survive and ends up perishing due to a rock. He is not able to be a proficient leader to the assembly of boys because of the certain character traits that Piggy
After all bullies usually only pick on people they know they can make feel bad to make themselves feel good. Ishmael didn’t feel good about himself, he hated his name he hated hearing the story of how he was born. Ishmael squirmed every time he heard his mother and father tell the story of how he was born and where he got his name from. At school Ishmael spent most of his time, as he says “making himself as small a target as possible” to avoid the bully Barry Bagsley and all the names he called him. Names like Le Spewer, Fishtail Le Sewer and Manure.
Jack and his boys are in charge of the fire and the one time a ship goes by they didn’t take care of the fire and the ship doesn’t see them, when they could have been rescued. That is one of the first time you see Ralph get really mad. He is especially mad because the boys were out hunting instead trying to get rescued. This is one of the times were the two boys values and thoughts on what is important causes tension and fighting between
His intenstions are correct but his delivery of expression is wrong. Jane has tried to resolve the conflicts prevailing in the office, but her efforts are all in vain. Now, Jane is frustrated that she has to act like a “kindergarden teacher”, when she is supposed to be more engaged with the business. Main Issues Andy Zimmerman is a bright star performer, but his ways with his colleagues are not congenial. He is a smart person with great insights and energy but when it comes to dealing with people he is not tactful enough rather he’s blunt to the extent of being intimidating, even to his boss Jane.
For the Villain with a smiling cheek says he is strong but he is truly week. His life filled with sin and gloom, constantly planning his next sinister ordeal. With his power he could have amazed and inspired, but yet he chose to cause harm. S men are not looking for anything logical like money. They cannot be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with.
Tub, who is fat, the butt of the jokes, and is slower than the rest of the group. He constantly tells people that he has a gland problem knowing that he doesn’t. When first reading this story, the reader sympathize Tub. He’s standing outside in the cold waiting on Frank and Kenny. When they finally pull up Kenny almost run over Tub and start to taunt him.
We tried keeping the signal fire going but we couldn’t. And then you, playing at hunting…”(Golding 178). He is also probably mad because his tribe is all work and no play and he sees that it’s not fair that Jacks tribe is all play and no work. His emotion turns to anger for Jack because the main objective is to get rescued but Jack is too arrogant to want to work to make it happen. Anger is an important emotion because it leads to violence like in the death of Piggy, Simon, and the attempt to kill
Throughout their stay on the island, Jack demonized Ralph, making him look like a dictator, and slowly drilling into the heads of the kids that he was the bad guy, despite the fact that the little progress made was really Jack’s fault. Also, Ralph didn’t really make it clear enough to the kids that what Jack was doing was wrong – most kids thought that they were just having harmless fun, but he didn’t make them see that (especially when Jack let the fire go out) if they sided with Jack then they would never get off the island. Jack may have been a powerful dictator, but he was also a coward – he couldn’t stand up to Ralph himself until he had the technological advantage of a spear, and the military advantage of army size over him – only in the end, when he literally had the power to burn down the island, did he dare to face Ralph’s moral influence head on. Ralph should’ve taken advantage of this and acted
This is not always a bad attribute; but, these emotions end up clouding Dave’s mind and cause him to make poor decisions. His bad judgment leads him from one bad situation to another, proving that he is no man. Dave uses many tactics to get what he wants throughout this tale, including manipulation, deception, and when all else fails, taking the coward way out and running away. In the beginning, Dave seems to be a little irritated and upset from the lack of respect he receives from some of the boys around town. What Dave does not understand is that you need to give respect to get respect.
He can also not swim, as he had never learned how. Ralph is also ignorant. When Piggy informs Ralph that he has asthma, Ralph responds with “Ass-mar! ?” (9) Ralph is a natural born leader, while Piggy is a follower and lazy. When everyone was doing work, Piggy would just stand around and get mad at them when they were not doing work.
