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.
This shows his intelligence, because this is exactly what the boys need: fun to counteract the fear of the beast, and meat to avoid being hungry. However, his need of power often blinds his intelligence. For instance, he doesn’t realize that by setting the whole island on fire to eliminate the last element of opposition to his dictatorship - Ralph -, he’s committing suicide, as there won’t be any food more for them to eat. The opposition between Jack and Ralph can be noticed throughout the book. Whereas Ralph wants to be rescued as soon as
“At once the crowd surged after it, poured down the rock. Leapt on to the beast, screamed, struck, bit, tore.” The “beast” here is referred to Simon. Simon is mistaken by the boys as a beast so they beat him up. The boys are so caught up in the beating as they use as many parts of their body they can to exert violence on Simon: verbal violence in “screamed”, the use of fists and hands in “struck, bit”, and teeth in “tore.” This is significant because Simon is killed by the delusion of the boys and he is the
The fact that the pig went from being ‘in maternal bliss’ to ‘dim-eyed and grinning faintly’ is also terrifying, because they took something innocent and turned it into something wicked, which is essentially what happened to them. The point that tells the reader that the boys have completely lost their innocence and civility is the brutal, but accidental, murder of Simon. They let their fear warp their vision and ultimately killed their friend because of their ignorance to what the beast actually was. The flashes of lightening and chanting work the boys up
But the Noble wailed with anger, that his speech became scrabbled and uncertain. His face lit with redness, his veins ruptured through his skin, threatening to get rid of them and destroy their lives. Fortunato and Montresor were staggered by his tone and words but Montresor came up with a demented plan that would make the Noble think twice of his own life. "How dare he speak in such tone, we've worked for him so long!" furiously said Fortunato.
The Narrator’s father stepped into the patch and asked Mr Wills “what’s come over you?” , Mr Wills said that his Watermelon seeds were stolen. The narrator’s father was very brave, he grabbed Mr Wills with both arms even though Mr Wills was much bigger, but Mr Wills shoved him away, striking him with his fist. The narrator’s father fell down and Mr Wills did not notice that. To make this moment more in detail and dramatic, Deal showed the insane look of Mr Wills (his teeth gripped over his lower lip, his eyes gleaming furiously) and showed each moment taking place. Then suddenly Mr Wills said in low voice “They Stole my seed melon”.
Furthermore, the fact that Jack has begun to become more tribal in appearance indicates his fall into savagery as he degenerates the rules. As Roger approaches Jack's tribe at Castle Rock, he sees that Jack is simply "sitting there, naked to the waste, his face blocked out in white and red" (Golding pp.176). Finally, as shown half-way through the story, Jack reveals his true sadistic nature as he was "on top of the sow, stabbing downward with his knife..... Jack found the throat and the hot blood
Ralph was only fighting back in self-defence but also had happened to injure one of the savages in his attempts to elude the boys. These boy now turned savages killed Simon and Piggy, without second thought to what they were doing, Even though it was Roger who dropped the rock on Piggy’s head, none of the other boys did anything to stop him. “High overhead, Roger, with a sense of delirious abandonment, leaned all his weight on the lever.
He also yells out meat when he yells out to his wife stella. Stanley was also very drunk on another occasion and slapped Stella on the thigh. She was infuriated and sharply told him "Thats not fun, Stanley." (48) On another occasion he through a radio Blanche turned on out the window. Stanley also tried to brutally attack Stella but the men from the poker game stopped him before any damage was made.
