This tribe tortures and murders both humans and animals. They also neglect all of the rules that were originally set on the island. Golding uses the conch to symbolize civilization in the novel. When Jack gives the speech to the young boys in the beginning of the novel the conch shell was still useful in representing that they were still civilized. However, by the end of the novel when the conch shell breaks at a confrontation between Jack and Ralp, this exemplifies the complete loss of order and democracy.
This is, of course, a subjective question, and your teacher undoubtedly wants to hear your thoughts after reading the novel. For me, the actual events in William Golding's Lord of the Flies are not as disturbing as what they mean. Golding says he wrote this book in "an attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature." To do that, he places these proper English schoolboys on a deserted island with no adults. This group of boys can choose to make whatever kind of society they want, and in the end they commit multiple murders and nearly destroy the entire island.

For Piggy and Ralph, it represents the moral influence of Old life in England. When Ralph sees a boat passing and notices that the boys that were supposed to be tending to the fire abandoned their post to hunt with Jack, he is furious. After the boat leaves and the fact that the fire is now out sinks into him, Ralph loses all his bearings and is at a loss as to what to do next. The fire was the only thing that tied them to the civilized world, and now without it, that tie has been broken. The Beast, the “Lord of the Flies”, is seen by the boys, as a real object on the island that frightens the boys.
The Lord of the Flies by William Golding is about a group of British school boys who become stranded on an island after a plane crash. They live in paradise until human nature takes over and democracy fails which makes many of the boys turn savage and fight amongst each other. Golding uses literary elements to show “It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, which lures him to evil ways.” The first literary device that proves this quote true is motif. Jack and his hunters became obsessed with the act of killing the pig because they were obsessed with the act of savagery and brutality. They weren’t just killing for the survival and/or by the fact that they felt threatened by the pig.
In the end, the fire goes out and they miss their chance of being saved when the boat passed by. And once Ralph gets angry at the boys, they all come to realization that civilization will start to break down. If they no longer have an “organization” to keep the fire going, then in truth, civilization will crumble. The fire keeps the boys alive, to eat, and to be rescued. Being on the island too long has caused the boys to go insane, and forget about the rescue.
And at the end of the novel, the island is scroched as Jack's tribe hunts down Ralph. Finally, Ralph lands at the feet of a naval officer. In this scene, Golding includes in his description of the naval officer; his badges and a gun, which the officer is about to draw. And also, he gives a brief description of the guns on the officer's ship. There is a sort of transition her; when the reader thinks that Ralph and the otehr kids have escaped violence and "returned" to civilization, we are shown that "civilization" is actually no better than the savage lives the children were living.
The conch, the beast, and the lord of the flies are all symbolic of the destruction and savagery that progresses on the island. Firstly the conch is a strong symbolic force on the island; its existence rivals that of a police officer or another member of the law. At the beginning when Ralph found the conch in the lagoon, he “blew a series of short blasts” (Golding, 15) this called order on the island as all of the boys made their way to the beach. Shortly after that they established that the only person who was holding the conch would be allowed to speak at the meetings. 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.
The beast is initially an idea that frightens the boys, and later manifests inside the boys, and further develops the idea of evil inside humanity. Initially the conch shell is a symbol of democracy, civilization, and authority, but as the civilization of the boys erodes, they descend into savagery and the respect they have for the conch deteriorates. The conch shell creates a community from the boys as they gather for the first time. As Ralph, “lifted the conch” (36) and says, “we want to be rescued” (36), the boys applaud him and make Ralph an authority figure. These events illustrate the boys’ attraction to a civilized existence.
After the members of Ralph's tribe get killed, Ralph becomes next in line because he is the only one left. At the end, a rescue occurs by an adult who saw their fire, and the boys become children again. One thing the movie lacks are the boys finding each other when the conch is blown. Also when Jack is out looking to kill Ralf, the book talks about how anonymous boy found Ralph hiding but the movie shows how some boys find Ralph hiding but they do not rat him out. I think they did this to show more of a loyalty to Ralph.
