Through the story, we see the boys loose their ability to stay civil and an example is, “The conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist” (181). This shows that as the boys started to become savage, they lost all their ability to be civil. Also, since Piggy still believed in the good and civility in people, when he died and the conch broke, we could see that they lost all touch to their past, civil lives. As the boys become more savage, they start becoming what they feared most, the Beastie. To the boys, the Beastie is portrayed as a wild beast that they must hunt down and is a higher power, but what the beast symbolizes is the human reaction to fear.
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.
PT: The boys all start to really want to go home, and then three boys went up to the mountain, and then they saw the beast, and ran back to camp. Chapter 8 1. Jack calls an assembly and says that Ralph is a coward like Piggy, Ralph doesn’t think the hunters are any good, and Jack declares that Ralph is not a proper chief (111-113). 2. Before Jack leaves the assembly, he is rejected and states that he is going out to his own tribe, and anyone who wants to join him may do so (113).
He had his principal and teachers encouraging him to play and keep at it because he “might be pretty damned good” (Messner 169). He thought of himself as a natural as did man of the other respondents, but this self definition of a natural could sometimes be interpreted as a “collective practice” (169). What people failed to realize was that a boy may have great hand-eye coordination, but lack the skills needed to play a professional sport. As well as the community, family played a big role in their involvement in sports. From sports usually comes the father-son relationship and bonding period.
A sentimental part of the movie, one black child looks at Jackie in awe. To add to the drama of the film, Rachel leaves the game because she feels sick and foreshadows that she might be pregnant. On the evening of the game, a white man warns Mr. Brock that it is best for Jackie to get out of there or else he will face trouble. He takes his advice and takes Jackie out at night and they pass a bar where a group of white men approach them. During another game, Jackie is told by a sheriff to get off the field because he can’t play, but he is defended and later on supported by a white man.
Jack reacts to Simon’s death by telling the tribe that they attacked the beast, but he says that it can’t be killed. The boys in Jack’s tribe avoid feeling guilty because they say that the beast was disguised suggesting how Jack’s manipulation has fooled them once again. Everyone except Ralph, Piggy, Sam’n’eric and the littluns have joined Jack’s tribe. Ralph has lost all of his power to Jack. Piggy insists that Ralph’s ‘still chief’, but Ralph is well aware that the power dynamic on the island has shifted completely to Jack’s side.
Ralph concludes that having a fire as a signal for rescuers, such as the Navy, to see is key to their rescue and escape from the island. Jack, on the other hand, does not consider getting off the island and returning home as the boys' number one priority. He believes that the boys should be able to feast on
This worked well at the beginning, however, after the fire had been let out by the hunters, the boys started to disrespect the conch and what it stood for. This was a strong foreshadowing of what was to come. As soon after this, the tension and rebellion rose, Jack left ultimately taking most of the boys. During this time Jack’s tribe was highly disrespectful of the conch, at time it was even ignored completely by Jack and the others. After the tribes separated, Jack held a feast and making sure what he said was very clear, “The conch does not count on this side of the island” (Golding, 150).
Dictatorship however is immoral and prejudiced. While Ralph tries to create a democratic civilization on the island, Jack tries to become a dictator. The struggle between right and wrong are pushed to their boundaries, pitting Ralph and Jack against one another to prove their points and become the ‘Lord of the Flies’. Democracy is the more morally correct approach to ruling the island, giving everyone a say in his or her own survival. Ralph takes a very democratic approach to his leadership responsibilities.
Universal Fact: The people of any society usually want a say in the ruling or governing of that society. Universal reality: In history, when the majority of countries had rulers and kings, the common man was killed for even stating things to a certain extent as to disagree with the king or parliament itself. Just like long ago, these boys tried to build their own political state. Although Ralph, Piggy, and Jack all desired the same thing, to survive, they each had different ways of exerting or carrying out that desire. Each of their ideas had the similarity of survival.
