(Golding 82). Jack publicly makes fun of the littluns. Jack disrespects the other boys' feelings, making them feel inferior and acting as if their fears are a sign of weakness. The younger boys' feelings of inferiority force them to follow Jack's orders, for fear of being punished or threatened if they go against his ideas. Jack's second anarchist method of leadership is made up of his passion for brutal hunting.
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
In brief, the novel, Lord Of The Flies by William Golding, shows that without adults on the island, the boys became vicious, disorderly, and evil. The ironic rescue at the end of the book shows that the boys are not only savages. After all, the adults who rescued them were engaged in their own war. That was the main reason why the boys ended up on the island in the first place. Although it may look as if the boys are doing something adults wouldn't have let them to do, they did almost exactly what the adults would have made them do back in society.
They’re going to hunt you tomorrow” (170). Jack kills Ralph last because Ralph is the last person Jack views as a threat to his goals. Jack is afraid Ralph might prevent him from taking complete control of the island, since initially Ralph was the leader. The darkness of humanity can destroy society since society gets in the way of the darkness of humanity. In the Lord of the Flies, Jack has been trying to destroy Ralph since chapter 1 because he wanted power.
Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk. There was an instance where Crooks was in danger himself, the result of him taunting Lennie that George might never come back for Lennie. Readers can sense the danger that Crooks was facing when “Suddenly Lennie’s eyes centered and grew quiet, and mad. He stood up and walked dangerously towards Crooks. ‘Who hurt George?’ he demanded” (Steinbeck 73).
He leaves the camp as he was not voted ‘leader’ and he hunts for food on his own. Therefore the majority of the boys start to leave Ralph and Piggy and join Jack’s team in order to survive. Jack is a cheat, murderer and a bad example of a leader. Therefore it foreshadows the rest of the novel as Jack doesn’t even look after them or use the correct morals. He is just a bully.
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
This all seems like a tragic story about the dissolution of a society in to chaos, but the chaos was not completely one-sided. Ralph finds himself in power when he brings the boys together from across the island. He loses the power when Merridew entices them with meat and action. Ralph loses most over time, and tries to win them back with logic and reasoning. This causes a conflict between Ralph and Merridew in terms of leadership, and causes more violence to occur, and eventually the death of three
After a while, Jack feels that Ralph is not a good leader and he should take over the leadership of the people on the island. Jack then made a huge mistake by not having people by going off to hunt for the group instead of helping the group watch and keep the fire one. “I’m going off by myself. He can catch his own pigs. Anyone who want so hunt when I do can come too” (Golding, 178).
Ralph represents the goodness left on the island, while Jacks worst got the best of him. He then becomes very violent “He's like Piggy. He says things like Piggy. He isn't a proper chief.”(Gift for the Darkness, p.138) Jack challenges Ralph whom he calls a coward; Ralph had insulted Jack's hunters as "boys with sticks”. He wants to turn everyone against Ralph so they join his tribe and become hunters leaving Jack in charge and chief of the island.
