After Jack’s failed attempt at leadership shortly after the arrival on the island, he becomes more and more obsessed with the desire of hunting and killing of pigs. However in instances where the pig is represented by Robert he still chants “Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Kill the pig! Bash him in!” and repeatedly jabs Robert (Golding 125).

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.
The book I am doing my report on is Lord of the flies, by William Golding and published by Perigee. This book shows the clash between the human drive towards brutality and the opposite, civilization. All around the novel, the clash is performed by the problem between Ralph and Jack, who individually speak to civilization and viciousness. The varying belief systems are communicated by every kid's different state of mind towards power. 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.
Jack`s face painting influences the boys to such an extreme that they lose their individuality alongside with their ability to make civilized decisions. He takes it a step farther by re-enacting the killing by substituting the pigs with real people. Jack’s sadistic side is visible, as he finds pleasure by killing and harming. Since the beginning Jack had been envious of Ralph`s position and greedy for power, and in order to satisfy his desire... ... middle of paper ... ...the unthinkable. William Golding Lord of the Flies articulates the idea evil residing within every human through three characters.
The Lord of the Flies represents the Devil and the great danger or evil. The killing of the sow and the hunting of pigs are accomplished in terms of sexual intercourse. The beast that the “littleuns” are afraid of is created by the emotions that all of the boys on the island are experiencing. The beast represents the evil residing within everyone and the dark side of human nature.
The reason he put children on the island was to show that if children were filled with the fuel to hunt and desire to kill, then what would a grown man do. Through the savagery on the island, it shows that a man by nature has a terrible potential to kill, a force so great it could wreak havoc. This is shown through the island being set on fire by Jack. Furthermore, the novel “Lord of the Flies” was written after the events which happened in WWII. His i... ... middle of paper ... ... pig he goes on about it though everyone knows what happened.
The novel Lord of the flies by William Golding presents and defends a theme that human nature is essential evil, and that a person removed from society will be allowed to let their evil instincts to manifest themselves as the person becomes increasingly savage. In this novel, Golding presents a character (Jack) who takes on and exemplifies this transition to savagery through out the course of the book as the evil inside him is set free. We see Jack, who at first cannot even kill a pig caught in the creepers, fall deeper in deeper into his savage ways as his killing of one pig, and his focus on the hunt turns to bloodlust. Then as it progresses his bloodlust begins to drive more than just the hunt for food as he leaves the dead as sacrifice for the beast, and he begins to turn his violence out towards the other boys, not just his pray. As a final decent into the evil that has consumed him the pray becomes one of the boys as Ralph is hunted with the intent to kill, sacrifice and possibly even eat in an act of cannibalism.
The novel I choose to read for this assignment was Animal Farm; by George Orwell. This novel discusses how things like greed, wealth, corrupt leaders, and shortsightedness can destroy any chance of a Utopia. These qualities are shown mostly through the pigs, as they start to take control they lose sight of the original 7 seven commandants upon which Animalism was created. As the pigs become more powerful the other animals slowly start becoming less aware of what is really taking place. The pigs are were pretty much destroying whatever shred of animalistic society they had left and replacing it with a cold hard dictatorship in which all the beliefs that made animalism were changed to the pigs advantage.
When Samneric tell Jack where Ralph is hiding, Roger threatens them: “I... ... middle of paper ... ... shows Jack's evil. Over the course of their time on the island, Jack's inherent evil becomes progressively more apparent. William Golding illustrates inherent evil in the human condition when outside forces are absent through the characters Roger, Ralph and Jack in his book, Lord Of The Flies. Roger shows evil by killing Piggy, his implied use of torture on Samneric and the intended beheading of Ralph. Ralph shows his evil by denying Simon's death, contributing to his death and taking pleasure in wounding the boar.
By the end, Jack is extremely bloodthirsty, and starts to kill pigs for fun. He even kills a pig and puts its head on a stick. Jack’s bloodthirstiness and the way he persuades the other boys is what makes him represent Adolf
