This poem is very well organized with words chosen very carefully making it smooth and easy to recite. These rhyme schemes help make the poem more interesting. Rhyme schemes also help Poe highlight key words that he wants his audience to notice. Poe had many rhymes in The Raven, yet he made it so the poem does not sound like a nursery rhyme or a children’s poem by using his very complex vocabulary. Symbolism plays a very big role in “The Raven”.
He believes that as long as they stay civilized they can easily survive, live in harmony, and eventually be rescued. “We’ve got to have rules and obey them,” (42). Ralph insists on having rules on the island and at first Jack agrees with him although his jealousy for Ralph’s power drives him to constantly undermine and disobey Ralph and his requests. By blowing the conch Ralph can call a meeting whenever he likes, to discuss issues and give orders. “‘Ralph sat on a fallen tree
“The best thing we can do is get ourselves rescued,” (Golding, pg.53). Ralph still shows the best of a person when he is selfless. By wanting to get off the island like everyone else he knows what it takes to get off because his dad is in the marines. In the novel, “Lord of the Flies,” by William Golding, he emphasizes that Ralph is an ego in the book by keeping everyone together and safe. What Ralph does is he teaches us to be selfless and try to help other people before ourselves.
Piggy's glasses become an important symbol representing the social order of the boys as they try to determine how to lead them. I will be talking about the Symbols of Piggy’s glasses and roles and effects. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding Piggy’s glasses gives the boys order. Every little thing you could imagine has symbols. Some symbols Piggy’s glasses have is the conch, the conch is used for order and necessity.
He can hold it when he’s speaking” This quote, from the novel, Lord of the Flies is referring to the symbol, the conch. The conch symbolizes order and civilized ways. When all of the boys first arrive on the island, they look put together. Their appearance and their manner of speaking are civilized. They then come up with the idea of the conch.
It is therefore very possible to find varying social norms as we move from one social setting to another. Of significance is the fact that basic social norms cut across cultures of the world. Those who do not adhere to social norms are always punished or considered social misfits. Norms are a very important part of society. In the book, norms are defined as “the specific expectations about how people behave in a given situation”.
This shows that, Ralph takes the conch seriously, and the conch is a big deal to him. The conch is the only thing that they have to call the boys together in a whole. In addition, during the meeting whoever held the conch had the right to speak. This shows that, they have rules and the boys are all organized. Also, the conch, keeps them from doing crazy things, and also keeps them civilized.
The conch, Jack’s knife and Piggy’s glasses are such symbols representing Golding’s perception of the Second World War through metaphoric figures. Golding emphasizes through the symbols in this novel the clash of good and evil and his point of view that every person as part of the nature of being human has a bad side that thrives to take over that of the good. Symbolism in “Lord of the Flies” is better applied to reality through Golding’s use of characterization. On the island the conch represents the law and order of the British society the boy’s had come from. The conch is governing authority, keeping those desperate for power under law and giving one the opportunity to speak ones mind as only the person holding the conch is permitted to speak, “Let him have the conch!” shouts Piggy.
In William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies, Simon represents morality because of his views on the beast, the fact that his morals never waver, and his interactions with other characters. Simon is a unique character in Lord of the Flies, because he is the only boy who does not believe in the beast. He does, however, have hallucinatory conversations with it. In these conversations, Simon’s strong moral grounding becomes quite clear. The Lord of the Flies tries to tempt Simon, telling him that his life would be better if he behaved the way the other boys do.
Several can cause human diseases that can damage us instead of helping us. Side effects cannot be detected in animals. Animals deliver data; nevertheless it’s the wrong data or different data.
