“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

He accidently killed Stilson in the beginning of the book without knowing until chapter 15, because he kicked him so many times.
Victor lived in a gothic area, Europe – Switzerland and Germany with old buildings, dungeons, towers, dark laboratories. It sure was an element of mystery and gloom. Shelley had Frankenstein wandering the streets of Ingolstadt and the Orkney Islands looking for body parts. That is awful and revolting. In preparation for his monstrous experiment Victor scours charnel houses, places for vivisection and graveyards, for these parts needed to create his new Adam or modern Prometheus, which is the novels subtitle.

The boys start to fight and have mini war.

Also, he reacts with violence against White society as he’s scared of them. But, instead of keeping quiet and minding his own business, he feels the need to rob Blum’s, a white mans, store. However, in the end he doesn’t do it as he is in fear of being caught. Again, though he reacts to it by beating Gus, his friend, up using the excuse of Gus being late to get out of their 4mission.
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.
