In the world, there is and always will be a war of good versus evil. It is a battle that will not end until the world itself has ended. In The Lord of the Flies, there are some boys who can be thought to represent evil, and boys who represent good in the world. Jack and Roger both symbolize savagery and evil with their horrible behavior and thirst for killing. Ralph and Simon are almost complete opposites of Jack and Roger, because they are symbols of good and purity in the book.
The Beast, the “Lord of the Flies”, is seen by the boys, as a real object on the island that frightens the boys. It comes into the story when a smaller boy mentions that he saw this “Beastie”, this “Snake- Thing”, in the forest. Whether or not he’s telling the truth, isn’t the top priority, but what they should do about the animal. Jack, wanting to gain favour and power in the group by playing on the fear of the other children, steps up, and says that he will go out and kill the Beast. By doing this he confirms the children’s worries that the Beast is real.

These include moral evil, natural evil; such as floods, disease, hurricanes, fires and earthquakes. Some Christians believe many causes for this but one main opinion and belief is that there is evil in the world because of the Devil. The devil is believed to be the enemy of God and tries to make humanity turn away from goodness. According to early Christian doctrine, the Devil was created good, but was jealous of God and decided to fight against God instead of being obedient. For example in the creation story in Genesis, Adam and Eve were tempted to do wrong by a serpent, some people believe that this was the Devil in disguise.
Symbols of savagery and connections to the devil can be found in various locations in the novel. “Jack’s bloodlust and thirst for power have overwhelmed his interest in civilization” (Barnes 4). Bloodlust and thirst for power are two qualities that symbolize savagery, and explain further how it is taking control of the kids. Another symbol of savagery is Jack’s mask, and how it covers his face when he is hunting. The mask can symbolize Jacks’ inner evil and, when he puts it on, symbolizes its control over him as it covers up his normal self.
Villarreal 2 The word “fallen man” is an allusion to Satan; it shows that Twain uses this short story to show his complex ideas of human nature. Twain wrote this story to show a point, that man brings their own end, that no one is free from temptation. That’s why in “The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg” they change the sign from “lead us not into temptation” to “lead us into temptation.” The town changes it to show each other by letting people tempt us we have to just think of the
