The beautiful island becomes a hell at the end of the novel. Finally, when Ralph is escaping from the hunting of other boys, he is saved by a navy officer who takes all boys back to the ship. Towards the end of the last chapter, the passage "Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man' heart, and the fall through the air of his true, wise friend called Piggy" demonstrates the main theme of this novel: man is evil by nature. The three things that Ralph weeps for are the lessons he has on this island: innocent boys become savage; all human beings have evil deep inside their hearts and the fall of science and rationality before the evil of human.

She describes Sutpen with so much hatred that he almost takes form of a monster, which is incapable of feelings. Interestingly, Rosa is telling her story to Quentin Compson, the second narrator from The Sound and the Fury, who later as we know commits suicide.

Character Analysis- Jack Merridew In the book Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, we are introduced to various characters which are stranded on an uninhabited island, after surviving a plane crash. In the first chapter of the book, we meet the antagonist of the novel, Jack Merridew, the head of a group of choir boys, a manipulative and dominating young boy. Through the first passage in Chapter 3, we learn quite a bit about Jack’s character traits, as he follows a pig, carrying a sharp knife in one hand, through the dark jungle, on the strange island. Through the imagery in this passage, we are able to clearly visualize Jack’s characterization. “His sandy hair, considerably longer than it had been when they dropped in, was lighter now…” (Lines 11-12) We are able to understand Jack’s appearance through this quote, we also learn that the boys must have been on the island for quite some time as his hair is already much longer and lighter, and this happens over a period of time.
Compare and contrast the presentation of civilisation and savagery in Lord of the Flies and Coral Island In both Coral Island and Lord of the Flies, the writers explore how children enforce responsibilities and civilisation. In the books both authors differ, in Coral Island, they encounter evil through savage people and conflicts whereas in Lord of the Flies, evil is within the children and as civilisation depletes, the children become increasingly savage. Also Ballantyne and Golding explore the contrasts in behaviour of the children and the way in which they deal with problems that cause trouble amongst themselves. Firstly, a difference which is used heavily in the presentation of civilisation and savagery is the contrariety of the quality of the boys in each book. The boys in Coral Island are very good at heart, compared to the boys in Lord of the Flies where the boys are complete savages at heart.
