Roger pushed a rock on Piggy as he died with the conch broke into millions of pieces and his body washed into the ocean. Authority had left the island. Civilization was gone, as there was nothing to control the young savage boys. Piggy was Ralph’s only true friend left as everyone else had betrayed him. Ralph, the only symbol of serenity on the island was betrayed.
Ralph was upset because the fire had gone out. “There was lashings of blood,” said Jack, laughing and shuddering, you should have seen it!”(69) This quote is an example of how the boys were violent throughout the book, and became progressively more deranged. The boys hunted and killed a pig, when Jack explained that the head of the beast was to be a gift to the beast. “Jack spoke loudly. This head is for the beast.
This shows that they are regressing into savagery. The boys’ change in appearance also depicts their regression. When they first killed a pig in chapter 4, they start acting uncivilized with their clothes off. Jack has also painted his face indicating that he’s becoming a savage and is
They try to tell Jack that if they leave the fire will go out, but Jack doesn't give them a chance to speak. Due to his poor decision making he extinguished a chance for the boys to be rescued. Something that set Jack apart from not only Ralph but all the other boys as well, was his transformation to savagery. Without a doubt he was the one who displayed the most cruelty towards animals and people. "'Kill the beast!
Our leader’s main focus was catching wild pigs from other parts of the island. Ralph, Piggy, and me kept stressing dat we should create a signal fire so we can get noticed but our pleas were ignored. Den, one night, Ralph, Piggy, an’ me left the campgroun’ an’ built da fire usin’ Piggy’s glasses. Everyday, one of us would tend to da fire so it wouldn’t go out.

He painted his face like a barbarian. When he saw his face, he "began to dance and his laughter became a bloodthirsty snarling" (Golding 64). Jack lost interest in civilization, which is why he didn't feel guilty for not keeping the fire going and help improve the survival of the tribe. He lured the group of boys by the promises of meat, play, and freedom. Jack represents the irrational nature of the boys, while Ralph represents common sense.
It first starts when the twins Sam and Eric leave the fire to go hunting with Jack. During this time, they do manage to catch and kill a pig, but also let the fire go out. This would not have as huge of deal, had a ship not passed by. Ralph and Jack get into a huge fight and things are not the same after that. Later they end up splitting into two separate groups.
Why things are the way they are?” (Golding 143) When Simon encountered the pigs head on the spear he has a hallucination that the pig is speaking to him. This passage from the text confirms Simon’s speculation that the beast is possibly the boys themselves. It was all in their head about the beast and they became savages. When Simon goes to tell the boys what he has discovered, he is brutally attacked and killed. Later on the boys also kill Piggy while hunting him and Ralph.

Ralph's most important objective was to go gome, but the boys were too caught up killing pigs to realize that the fire had been left uncared for. Infuriated that the chances of being rescued vanished, the leader demands an explanation for the lack of responsibility.
