Unexpectedly, an unnamed littl'un with a birthmark on his face tells about a "beastie" that he saw somewhere on the island. The general consensus from the others is that there is no such thing, and it must be his imagination. Ralph then suggests making a signal fire, which would be necessary if they hope to get rescued. The boys scramble off to gather wood to build a fire. Unsure of how to light it, they finally grab Piggy's specs and focus the sunlight to ignite their fire.
Because Jack needed all of them to hunt a pig they let the fire out. Ralph and Piggy are indignant of Jack's carelessness. This drives Jack to violence and he breaks Piggy's specs. This evening for the first time the hunters play their game: one pretends to be the
As a result, a strong malignance grows between the two boys. On one day, Ralph di... ... middle of paper ... ...ng ships. Ralph and his group decide to talk to Jack to return Piggy’s spec but fail because the language of reason and logic is not useful with those primitive boys. Ralph feels angry and fights with Jack and while Piggy is watching them, a hunter called Roger drops a huge boulder over him which kills him. Over the sight of his friend’s body, Ralph runs away from Jack and his group.
In return, Jack slaps Piggy and breaks one of the lenses on his glasses. Ralph warns Jack to stop this destructive behaviour. Jack starts roasting the pig he had killed earlier. Jack does not initially give Ralph any food, but he does finally get some. Ralph calls an assembly after the feast.
He even gathers most of the other boys to go on a hunt with him. When Ralph found out that they had left the fire unattended he was angered, especially because it was the hunter’s responsibility to tend to the fire. When the other boys had returned, they were chanting Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood.
Jack and his followers spend most of their time hunting for wild pigs so Ralph=s efforts to organize the group fail. By now, most of the older boys are beginning to act like savages, hunting wild pigs, going into a frenzy when they succeed and celebrate their kill with wild dancing around a fire. One night during an air-battle, a body of a parachutist lands on the island and has become tangled on some rocks on the mountain. A rumor of a Abeast@ on their island discovers that the beast the parachutist but unfortunately never has the opportunity to tell the others. He is mistaken for the beast and is accidentally killed during a wild celebration feast that takes place after a successful hunt by Jack and his followers.
This was also when the real Lord of the Flies that was stalking the boys on the island reared its ugly head. While Simon was concealed in the forest, watching the self-proclaimed “hunters” kill a sow, he observed them place the head of this pig on a stick as an offering to the “beast.” After the hunters left, Simon began to see what that the pig’s head represented. It showed that an immense amount of turmoil was going to take place on the island. This turmoil began when Jack started his own little tribe that was comprised of all the hunters and offered anyone free membership. Everyone, except Ralph and Piggy, joined the new clique because Jack claimed that they would always have meat to eat.
Everyone including merridew is upset. When they come down they discuss what they saw and the whole pact concludes that they have to build a fire on the mountain to... ... middle of paper ... ...asses while harming the tribe. Ralph tried to go to merridew to talk some sense into him but one of his choir members let a big rock fall off the rock where his tribe was located and it killed Piggy and destroyed the conch. Ralph then runs away to try and save himself. Sam and Eric are forced to join Merridew’s tribe and keep watch for Ralph.
The rumors of its existence scare the smaller children, but also become the catalyst for Jack and his group to indulge their savageness, due to their desire to hunt it down and kill it. The boys are driven to madness because of it. This “beastie” is the titular Lord of the Flies, or Beelzebub, who in the New Testament is identified as the Devil – a symbol of evil. When one of the characters, Simon, stumbles across the beastie it is revealed that it is a pig’s head on a stick. The pig was brutally stabbed by Jack and his hunters in a frenzy, as the pig squealed in pain.
The shelter collapsed with smothering finality., and anonymous shapes made there way to the dark.... His left hand dangled piggy's glasses.” so the hunters badly beat Ralph and his people, who do not even know why they were attacked, they would have gladly shared the fire with the other boys so they did not need to steal piggy's glasses to make fire. This proves the theme because raiding the group instead of asking the group for glasses to make a fire is crude nature the choice of choosing to destroy the camp is destructive nature
