I feel that Lord of the Flies is a good book because it reveals to you that every man has the ability to be vicious, that evil is just controlled by the guidelines of society, and that once there are no rules the evil comes free and individuals get to be savages and can turn on their best friends. Golding's stress on the negative results of brutality might be perused as a reasonable support of civilization. In the early parts of the novel, he proposes that one of the paramount capacities of socialized public opinion is to give an outlet to the savage driving forces that dwell inside every person. Jack's starting longing to slaughter pigs to show his fort...
Painting their faces gives the boys a new identity for their evil, they use these mask and expose the beast inside themselves. The symbols of the final fire, Castle Rock and the painted faces are all symbols of how underneath the thin veneer, all humans are beasts. The book Lord of the Flies by William Golding explains how much evil one has inside of their own innocent and civilized nature. If one looks at their day to day actions they would see the little moments that show their inner evil shining through. Sometimes people make comments or do actions for selfish reasons, which are all part of the evil inside all humans.
Orwell's novel depicts how a society can be corrupted if all the power was left to one individual. In this case, the animals left all the power to the pigs and they took advantage of that power. In my opinion, Orwell did a good job in portraying animals to signify the human counterpart. I enjoyed the fact that he made the pigs in charge and later we found out that the pigs were evil and corrupted, similar to politicians that runs our government. This analogy depicts politicians to be like dirty pigs.
Through Lord of the Flies, a concise and clear example of what happens when government and laws are removed was played out, with the results disastrous. After a short period of time, being removed from under authority the boys transformed into murderers, actively seeking one another out in a game of death. The result of the island escapade is more than enough evidence to prove Hobbes’s theory, and is backed by the hunting of pigs, the destruction of the conch and the use of paint.
Napoleon used scapegoats for any problem that arose, and propaganda to brainwash the animals into dependable slaves. Napoleon distorted the seven commandments of Animal Farm to advantage himself, and he lacked compassion for the animals that laboured under him. He executed any animal that he though a threat to his power. Both pigs were definitely corrupted by their power.
The Lord of the Flies also says that he is part of everyone, explaining how he, the evil, is in everyone, and goes on to say that the evil is what is responsible for all of the issues on the island. He also tells Simon to return to the others, and later, when he does return to the others, there is frenzy where there is... ... middle of paper ... ...le to go, far enough to turn on their friends, and doom themselves, and to murder others. The Lord of the Flies says a lot about the nature of human beings, but perhaps its most lasting impression is of the evil that is inherently imbedded in every human being’s nature. During Simon’s encounter with the Lord of the Flies, it tells him that the evil is inside of everyone, and that it is the reason for the demise of order and civility on the island. In the movie, the boys discuss restraining or killing the unconscious pilot, for the reason that they are scared of him.
As the novel develops, the pigs gradually obtain more power, which they use to take advantage of the less intelligent animals on the farm. This supports the idea that Orwell is possibly warning the audience that no matter what the original intentions are, power can corrupt anyone. Orwell uses a deeper level of meaning to act as a vehicle to convey his idea in the form of a warning. Animal Farm is a fable which is used to teach a lesson in morality. One such lesson can be that greed reveals the worst in everyone.
Cut her throat. Spill her blood.” With his first butcher, Jack is trapped. Abruptly, the act of killing soon becomes an obsession and ulti... ... middle of paper ... ...and stripes him of his civilized self, making him free from disgrace. The mask also represents how civilization can be covered up or forgotten easily. Lord of The Flies reflects on the human conduct themselves on an inhabited island where rules no longer exist.
William Golding’s Lord of the Flies shows man’s inhumanity to man. This novel shows readers good vs. evil through children. It uses their way of coping with being stranded on an island to show us how corrupt humans really are. Man’s inhumanity to man literally means human’s cruelty towards other humans. This is a major theme of the story and is seen throughout it.
The Lord of the Flies gives an accurate insight to the problems that we are faced with everyday like violence, greed, fear, and religious power and shows how civilization and savagery contrast because of this. It shows us no matter who we are evil lies within all of us. This is exemplified through the breaking of the conch, the Lord of the Flies (pigs head), and through Jack. This novel shows that even the most innocent of children can turn evil, everyone is capable. Friedrich Nietzsche once said ““Man is the cruelest animal.”
