He shows that he enjoys releasing the rock that killed Piggy showing that indeed he had developed into an evil monster under the chaotic environment. The events of the death of Piggy clearly demonstrates that with the abandonment of civilisation the boys decent into anarchy. In the end, Golding uses the dark and gruesome events leading to the death of Simon and Piggy as well as the savagery developing in the character of Jack to prove that when civilisation falls away and individuals are left to their own immediate desires, anarchy ensues in its most evil form. However, though Lord of the Flies displays the problems of humanity, there are plenty of pieces of literature that depicts the bright side of humanity, which hopefully outnumbers the negatives.

Overall, evil does exist in all of us in different doses. Some people may express evil more openly than others, such as Jack, and others may keep their evil under lock and key, such as Ralph.

One can witness through the parties of "dazzling extravagance"(E.K. 7), the decieving underworld business of Gatsby, the "wasteland" Valley of Ashes (Miller 106), the unreal ,cold palaces of the East and West Egg, and most of all in the imaginary self-invented souls of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan the truth to the idea of outward appearances.

Through the thorough analysis of these two ideas, the novel’s fictitious setting and the relationship it has with the two books is expounded. The role of book one in Utopia is to introduce and build the character of Raphael Hythloday for the reader. This is achieved through the argument between both Hythloday and the lawyer about thievery. This argument demonstrates Hythloday’s reliability and wisdom as a character as a precursor to book two.

The Invisible Man by HG Wells Griffin - Wells goes in great detail about the way Griffin (the Invisible Man) looks and acts. He writes about Griffin's bad temper and his evil scheme of stealing money and food to survive as an invisible man. He makes the character, Griffin, realistic because his emotions, like expressing his anger through shouting, are something people are familiar with. Griffin was quick to anger by the taking of drugs and stimulants. What may have begun as quick temper and impatience turns into violent rage and a wish to commit murder.

They feel sheltered and protected from the real world while in the bar.
