The goddess Nemesis waits until just the proper moment to tap his arrogance, blind him to the reality around him, and thereby lead him to his own destruction. But note: What separates the tragic hero from the arrogant fool who suffers the same fate is the sheer magnitude of his gifts, and thus the depth of the abyss into which he falls, and the spirit with which he
However, as the book continues we see the stones become a thing of evil as Roger loses his grip on civilisation. The stones come to represent the loss of restriction normally imposed by civilisation. In chapter 11 Roger rolls a huge boulder off the cliff at Castle Rock and onto Piggy, killing him outright. From this we know that Roger has truly lost his grasp on civilisation and has turned from a civilised boy into a savage who is willing to commit murder. “Roger with a sense of delirious abandonment leaned on the lever.” “Delirious” can only refer to his lack of propriety which leads to the death of another human.
