Ralph was extremely frustrated with everyone because many of the boys did not care that the fire went out. Ralph realizes that fire is one of the most important things since that is the thing that is supposed to get them rescued off of the island. The boys, besides Ralph, are showing their evil by not caring that this happened to them instead they just brush it off like it is no big deal but in reality it is a huge deal for their survival. The way that Ralph was brought up in his society shows that he can control his evil reactions in tense situations since he does not want to lash out at somebody. Even though Ralph is from a controlled society, he was very eager to join the society that was taking place which leads to the killing of Simon: “The beast was on its knees in the center,...leapt on to the beast, screamed struck, bit, tore...they could see
Golding’s timeless novel, Lord of the Flies, has an impact on society because it shows how boys, representing the world, may react in different situations and how human nature can create chaos, turning good to bad; a pandemonium civilization . The novel shows the inner self of each person will appear eventually , it only depends on how strongly you believe in your own conscience which Ralph possesses. As a leader Ralph is a better chief although he can’t regulate the group of boys well, the boys still choose Ralph instead of Jack as he cares for others and their survival unlike Jack. The reader experiences how people could change into ‘Jack’ easily and because of a lack of organization or rules, we would end up killing each other, as the boys do.
William Golding has very developed characters in Lord of the Flies, Ralph and Jack to be specific. Ralph is good at involving everyone in his decisions, but not good at reprimanding and punishing the boys. Jack knows how the boys feel and relates with them, but he can not identify his priorities or achieve them. These two leaders are both intelligent, but can not control their desire to kill. Without all the downfalls and all of the good qualities in Ralph and Jack would have been very different leaders, which might have a good thing for the boys, or could have make the situation even worse.
“They get a chance to do everything.” (p.22) Since Bigger wasn’t at the opportunity of being able to be an aviator, he had to go in a search for a job. He ended up working for the Dalton family. He did not like his job ... ... middle of paper ... ... to Bessie, to even considering the thought of killing himself. The feeling never actually leaves him. It frightens him, and I don’t think it would be so bad if it weren’t for the discrimination and segregation.
He would be “as happy as a fly” (Morrison 142) if he could just escape the people he feels is holding him back and causing him so much despondency. Throughout... ... middle of paper ... ...lps Milkman realize how to fly and find himself. Flying is one thing that will make anyone feel boundless and free from worries and trouble. Everyone wants to feel this kind of freedom, however unless they can fly, they are unable to. It’s obvious that Milkman would want to feel this freedom from all of the burdens that he has been presented with through out the entirety of his life.
Most gulls only learn the simple facts of flight how to get from shore to food and back. The others gulls just care for eating and not for the flying, however Jonathan loved to fly more than he loved to eat. He knew this was not a way to think and even his parents were dismayed by his daily experimentation. They asked Jonathan to be normal and even though he agreed he would go back to his old self and kept trying to fly. He learned about speed and tried, not successfully, to fly the fastest that he could fly but every time he would lose control and crash into the water.
A ship may be near and there is no smoke to signal them. “Are you all off your rockers?” (Golding 108). Some may say the isolated environment caused the boys to argue with one another about the many issues that rose between them, but common sense seems to dictate the boys’ age related thinking made the majority of them decide to follow Jack’s belief that a fire was not important. If a fully mature group of men were on the island in the same situation, the majority of them would know Ralph was correct in thinking a fire was a necessary for smoke in making a signal for a large chance at rescue than without one. Only immature brained individuals like most of boys were on the island, would think otherwise and not realize their lives depend upon that smoke
In the case of this movie, the elected officials would be represented by Jack because he was representing the concerns of the boys in the group as he was trying to keep them all “safe” from the monster that lurked the island. The monster became the main concern of these boys and they were generally concerned of their safety. The bureaucracy would be represented through Ralph as he ended up with less support from the boys but the boys that did stick with him were more concerned about his expertise and skill and did not let the illusions of the monster steer them away. To compare both, in the movie considering these two groups as the bureaucracy and elected officials, the constant clash of the boys was apparent and clear to see. Jack and Ralph were not able to agree on specific situations and resulted in getting nothing done, which is why they ended up splitting.
Also he says “acting like a crowd of kids” as if was the adult on the island trying to help the “kids”. More proof of his clear thinking is the fact that Ralph relies on Piggy’s good advice to succeed. Without Piggy, Ralph would be lost. As the story progresses we see the boys drift apart however we see Piggy try to retain order as an adult might. When there is going to be a fight he says, “Come away.
Unfortunately, it is because of his age and lack of experience that he understandably fails to maintain order when the constraints of civilization are overpowered by the boys’ savage impulses. Had they listened to him, many wiser decisions would have been made regarding their survival. Firstly, a notable trait that distinguishes Ralph from the other children on the island is his ability to think more rationally. As the boys become influenced by Jack’s rule, they regress into uncivilized savages that lack discipline. Whereas, Ralph is wisely able to keep the boys under order, which is particularly apparent through the meetings that he regularly holds.
