Piggy continue to complain about the inefficient group effort in surviving. Suddenly a nearby tree catches on fire and Piggy realize that the six year old boy who talked about the “beastie” is gone. With things going bad, the remaining boys in the group pretend nothing happened. Chapter 3: Jack attempts to hunt a pig for the second time but the pig escaped.
In chapter one, Jack hesitates to stab and kill a piglet because he has never killed anything, and the barbaric act of cutting into a living creature was too overwhelming. Not only does Jack see this as a personal weakness, but he also is embarrassed by his hesitation and says “I was choosing a place.” His explanation that he was looking for a place to stab the piglet was false and everyone knew it was the unbearable blood stopping Jack from killing the creature; however, he vows that next time the pig won't get away. This vow opens the door to the savagery that will overtake him and many of the boys who want to satisfy their primal impulses. Clearly Jack does not start off as a monster, and he still remains in touch with civilization. Although, as the novel continues, Jack's trajectory gradually moves away from the formal, civilized way of life and steadily toward murder and brutality.
In chapter 10, Simon tries to tell the other boys that the real beast is their own selves, while at the same time they are screaming, "Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill His Blood!" Simon is stabbed with a spear and dies. There is no civilization in the novel.
* When Zaroff says “Surely your experiences in the war—,” Rainsford does not even let him finish before saying “Did not make me condone cold-blooded murder.” * He continues to say “Thank you, I’m a hunter, not a murderer.” * Zaroff talks constantly about his hunts and how they bored him overtime. His ability to hunt humans turned him into the monster that he is. He is a lot like Rainsford in the beginning in having no remorse for the animals he hunts, including humans. Which is exactly why he is not like Rainsford in the end. Zaroff never had the chance to be the hunted and therefore does not know the definition of fear.
This tribe tortures and murders both humans and animals. They also neglect all of the rules that were originally set on the island. Golding uses the conch to symbolize civilization in the novel. When Jack gives the speech to the young boys in the beginning of the novel the conch shell was still useful in representing that they were still civilized. However, by the end of the novel when the conch shell breaks at a confrontation between Jack and Ralp, this exemplifies the complete loss of order and democracy.
Spill his blood! Do him in!” (168). By becoming so carried away and building up such desire to kill, the boys mistake Simon for the beast and murder him instantly. Finally, the boys’ savagery is also portrayed in the murder of Piggy. Nobody was allowing Piggy the opportunity to speak his mind, disregarding any of his opinions.
Cut his throat! Spill his blood!"'. Simon comes crawling out of the forest, the boys mistake him for the beast and end up beating him to death. The awe is the influence of the primitive dance and chanting and the knowledge is that, the beast is dangerous and must be destroyed; also, it is assumed that all the boys think that the beast is the only thing stopping the island from being good, so once destroyed then there will be nothing to fear and they can live peacefully and happily. Though this seems a silly thought, for there is no beast.
The impotent men within each text are revealed to be in a state of social paralysis; each protagonist aiming to inhibit the development of an evolving society. Both authors attack the idea of inheritance or of one’s entitlement to status or wealth through material or monetary acquisition. Through Lord Chatterly, Lawrence deconstructs the idea of inherited wealth. Lord Chatterlys conviction that someone must inherit Wragby is turned into farce when he declares that he would accept a child fathered by another man, for it would belong to ‘us and to the place’. The term ‘place’ suggests that territory is bound to their family identity.
In effect, they have killed a mockingbird. Boo Radley is another example of a human “mockingbird”. He has spent his entire life as a prisoner of his own home because his father was overcautious in punishing him for a mistake he made as a child. Boo Radley observes the world around him, causing no harm to anyone; he then goes on to save Jem and Scout’s lives when Bob Ewell attacks them. The sheriff, Heck Tate, determines that Bob Ewell’s death will be ruled as an accident to avoid forcing Boo to go to trial, even though Boo killed him to protect the children.
“Anguish and despair had penetrated into the core of my heart; I bore a hell within me, which nothing could extinguish.” (Shelley 75) However, Victor cannot explain the truth because he is afraid people will think he is crazy. He is convicted knowing that the monster caused the death of his own family member and the execution of Justine. Shelley conveys that the scientific attitudes of Victor creating the monster made Victor feel
