In the novel Lord Of The Flies by William Golding, a group of English schoolboys crash on a deserted island miles away from any type of civilization. What starts out as a “paradise” turns into a dystopia. The boys are isolated from any supervision and understand that they can do whatever their hearts desire. Their surroundings are what cause their descent into savagery and their loss of civilization. There are no parents, which cause the boys to turn on each other, and they’re completely surrounded by the silence of nature.
Lennie got himself into trouble in the last town for petting a woman's dress "like it was a mouse." This obvious innocence foreshadows the inevitable end to Lennie's carelessness. Trouble follows the two men because Lennie cannot realize what he is doing wrong. George can only call him "a crazy son-of-a-bitch" and pretend that he does not want the responsibility of the childish man. However, the powerful simpleton never means harm to his victims or comprehends the complications to George that come from the things he does.
Hamlet avoiding conflict causes his girlfriend to stop talking to him. It also causes his "friends," Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, to deceive him. Even though Hamlet is pensive to the point of obsession, he acts rashly too. An example of this is when he stabs Polonius through the drape, without even checking to see who he is. Is it acts like these make him seem absolutely mad, because he behaves so erratically.
Molly is fantastic at kissing Peter’s butt, so therefore, she isn’t brave. Drew is weak. Eric is sadistic, can’t deal with his own problems himself and he also isn’t brave. Tobias, on the other hand, shows the true skills of an extremely brave man by rebelling against an army and risking his life concealing his identity. If a person here believes that anyone other than Four is braver than him, he/she is obviously mistaken and Mrs. Wadsworth should give he/she a zero due to the fact his/her argument is completely stupid and invalid.
Throughout the story Victor Frankenstein’s creation is constantly judged and rejected solely for how he looks. In the monsters first couple of days alive he wanders to a village and attracts everyone’s attention. Some people ran away, but “some attacked [him], until, grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons, [he] escaped to the open country”(109). There is no explanation for the villager’s actions, other than the fact that they were unable to look past his inhuman appearance. Even though they had never interacted with the monster, their unnecessary actions impacted his negative view on mankind and physically hurt him.
Examining the monster’s body language as though an impressionable infant, its actions can be read as a child-like plea for its father though the absence of speech not yet learned. Instead, its unattractive appearance causes Victor to run, leaving the creature alone with no information about himself or his surroundings. Therefore, Victor’s abandonment is a crucial justification of the monster’s negative experiences with society and nature and actions in desiring community. The monster’s alienation from family is the missing first school of human nature, and the first lesson where he learns he does not belong. The creature leaves into the wilderness to learn about the world and himself on it own, only to understand his interactions are
No fights happen as they... ... middle of paper ... ...nd evil in them just like Jack and his hunters have done. In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, he portrays the theme of innocence to evil to prove that everybody has the potential to release the savagery within them. The boys lose their sense of control from their beginnings on the island, to the breakdown of their society, to the tragedies that unfolded their civilization. A final thought on why it gets as chaotic as it does is that they had no grownups around them to keep order safe and sane, and to protect them. Also every single argument they had never got resolved which makes matters much worse.
Jack thinks that the conch rule is a silly rule and when Ralph tells Jack that he is breaking the rules he simply replies with "who cares?" or "sod you!" Jack is also unsympathetic towards the littluns' and refers to them as a "useless lot of cry-babies". Jack becomes fearless and some of the other boys respect him as a good hunter because he has "been everywhere". The other boys also think that he is more fun because he just hunts and doesn't care about all the rules.
In the book, this indifference is best exemplified by the war -- an ultimately futile struggle of man against man and the death of Catherine Barkley – someone good and pure. She did not die due to her “sins”, but merely because life is short, unfair, and unorderly. The Hemingway hero must first accept many things, the first of which is a disbelief in God, faith was a cheap way of falsely instilling order upon existence. This is why the priest falls short of everything and the reason behind his constant teasing, he held no true power. Because there is no God, there are no universal moral codes, no abstract values such as "justice" or "glory," and certainly no need for moral conventions.
Golding’s characters have not done wrong to anyone else before put into their situation, but Maria, however, has walked out on her husband before, so the reader sees that she is not someone that can be trusted. Another way Golding uses his characters to his advantage is by having the boys begin to turn on one another due to the underlying panic the beast has planted in the boys. “The circle moved in and round. Robert squealed in mock terror, then in real pain” (Golding 114). Th... ... middle of paper ... ... husband and from that he is able to visit her without any trouble.
