As Jack defied him, all he could say was “I’m the chief” or “I have the conch”. By doing so, it shows that he didn’t do all he could to keep everyone in check. As a leader, Ralph gained trust from many of the boys, including Piggy. Piggy, who was the most intellectual, seemed to get into everyone’s way. With his good intentions and smart thoughts, it made the other biguns feel inferior.
at him, to which "Piggy wilted"(Golding 58). Piggy, who is a constant target throughout the length of the story, may feel powerless towards the rest of the boys. When he tries to assert leadership, he backs off timidly because he feels irrelevant. This position makes him an easy target. Through Kuther's definition of bullying, Piggy is classified as a hopeless
he's motivation was to keep everyone safe, and stick threw it till the end. Ralph not only is a hero, but truely the only optimistic person threw out the story. The other children of the island elect him as the leader of the island because of he took control and tried to bring order amunst the others. examples of ralphs attempts to bring order to the island include, the conch shell, piggies glasses, buliding huts, fire, and establishing roles for the other islanders. when the boys first arive on the island, Ralph finds a conch shell that he uses to not only bring order, but to gather everyone that survived together.
George and Lennie have an unusual relationship for itinerant workers which can be viewed in different ways as throughout the novel George is Lennie's carer, father figure, and brother. He is a man of principle; promising Aunt Clara that he would take care of Lennie. Also, no matter how impatient or angry George gets, he always forgives Lennie for his wrongdoings. In the opening passage introducing them, Lennie acts very childish and immature allowing us to see their ‘father son’ bond, “Lennie!” he said sharply. “Lennie, for God’ sakes don’t drink so much.”Lennie continued to snort into the pool.’ George uses negative suggestion; Children are particularly prone to it as they are constantly told, ‘don’t do this’ and ‘don’t do that’ the more they try not to do something the likely they are going to give in and do it.
Ralph is the opposite of Jack, he believes in leading with a democratic style, which gives people freedom of opinion, as well as equality to all group members. He thinks about everyone and not just himself. He is also sensitive to the feelings of others; an example of this is when he tells everyone that everyone that Piggy is called Piggy when he was told not to, and Piggy tells him about it afterwards, Ralph realises he is hurt while Jack pretends not to notice anything.””Look” Jack and Simon Pretended not to notice anything, They walked on ...”You told ‘em after what I said” ...”About being called Piggy...Stillness descended on them, Ralph, looking with more understanding
His leadership skills are seen by Ralph even though he isn't as old as Ralph and Jack. He is the first person to realise that "the beastie" is not a physical being/animal trying to make all the boys on the island suffer and have a miserable time. Simon shows his courage by his eagerness to make yet another journey to discover the beast's true self. It is necessary for him to become isolated in order to see things more clearly. Along with Piggy, unfortunately, he becomes a symbol of sacrifice when the boys tear him to pieces.
If the boys weren’t trapped on the island, they would not be forced to grow into a slaughterer. Furthermore, another conflict that acts upon the boy’s tremendous transition is lack of authority. The boys set rules and restrictions when they make their presence on the island; “We’ll have rules… lots of rules!” (33) The boys eventually learned to manipulate their freedom: “You’re breaking the rules!”(91) “Who cares?” (91) The lack of authority made it impossible to keep the rules enforced. Things worsened due to lack of restrictions: “Roger, with a sense of delirious abandonment, leaned all his weight on the lever… the rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee…” (181) Lack of authority severely triggers the boy’s transition. Hence, if there were more authority the boys could not stand a chance for such dreadful change.
PEELIT for one quote from the last 3 pages of Lord of the Flies Point: The boys on the island become savage once they forget the mannerisms of society. Evidence: “Percival Wemys Madison sought in his head for an incantation that had faden clean away.” Explanation: Language: “incantation”… The use of this noun is particularly interesting because it shows the reader just how much names are used in the civilised world to control a person and it is these names that, once forgotten, allowed the boys to become savages and hunters. Noun Intentions: An incantation may invoke or praise a deity. It can be used with the intention of casting a spell on an object or a person. The use of incantation, by William Golding, may be to prompt the reader to think about how someones name can be used to control them and once the boys had been released from this ‘spell’ once they where on the island by forgetting their names they because unruly and uncivilised.
In their relationship, George is in control like a parent, while Lennie is just like a little kid. We see many examples of this throughout the novel, and just one example is, "like a terrier who doesn't want to bring a ball to its master". Another simile compares Lennie to an animal, though this one shows him as something small, and though unwilling, unable to do anything about it. At the same time, it calls George the "master". Candy and his dog is another key instant where the lack of friendship is shown.
When the boys lived in civilization, they were taught that killing and even hurting someone or something was wrong. In this moment the readers witness that Jack’s morals are still in place and he has difficulty dismissing them. The longer the boys are away from civilization, the harder it becomes for them to stay moral. The begin to acknowledge that they are no longer obligated to do
