Without realizing it, Jack was swayed by a civilization that he was not a part of anymore. The good half of Jack knew there was a certain taboo associated with killing. He knew his actions would never have been acceptable in the previous world, but the malevolent part of Jack argued that no one could hinder him. He could experience the thrill of killing without being punished by the authoritative figures of his past. Later in the book, Jack left behind all his morals and triumphantly killed a sow.... ... middle of paper ... ...e him over so he could successfully hunt a pig.

We Can see that even Ralph and Piggy have a savage side as they, “found themselves eager to take place in this demented but partly safe society.” This demonstrates Goldings view that everyone has a savage side to them. At Simon’s murder the boys, “Leapt on to the beast, screamed, struck, bit and tore.” This clearly shows us that the boys are completely barbaric and have no self-conciseness. The reason why Golding did not inform us straight away that Simon was the beast was because he wanted us to try and see things from the boys’ perspective. As Simon was trying to tell the boys that the beast did not exist, his death symbolises that mankind can’t face the truth about their inner desires.
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
It says in interloper page 272,” A famous lawsuit had wrestled it ( the land they were hunting on) from the illegal possession of a neighboring family,” Ulrich, the head of the family that made the lawsuit, had inherited the family heirloom of hate for the Znaeyms, the neighbors. Because he had this hate and ... ... middle of paper ... ...d have been much wiser. That is the final reason why Ulrich and Znaeym were guilty and deserved to die. So in the end they die, and eventually they’ll all die. But, those two men had played the wrong the cards and suffered the consequences.
None of the boys recognized him, so they “leapt on to the beast, screamed, struck, bit, tore” (Golding 153). The morning after the death of Simon, Ralph and Piggy feel guilt from accidentally taking part in the death of Simon. William Golding’s view of humanity is clearly seen in the characters Roger and Jack, and when the civilized society falls apart. When Golding introduced Roger, he made the expressed Roger as pure evil and pure savage. When Golding introduced Jack, he expresses his character as the savagery that is being held back.
?We may stay here till we die,? (pg.9) was a very powerful quote, because from the beginning of the novel, Golding is foreshadowing their future on the island. Another example of this is their painted faces and tribal dances, which happen when they?ve killed a pig. A force greater than they can control seems to take over their humanity, and because children haven?t been exposed to think for themselves, they don?t know between right and wrong. Therefore, society hasn?t conditioned them to be evil, but the evil resides within them naturally.

At this point, democracy in the shape of Ralph seemed to prevail over totalitarianism in the shape of Jack who faded into the shadows. Overall, Ralph and Jack were very different characters. Ralph began the book as a hopeful leader with high ideals and in the end was feeling hunted and squashed by dictatorship and anarchy. He was motivated by the hope of rescue and was more of a democratic leader.
Dispite Jack’s unpleasent personality, his lack of courage and his conscience preventing him from killing the first pig they encountered. "They knew very well why he hadn’t; because of the enormity of the knife decending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood." (p.34) When Jack was chosen to keep the fire going, he decides to get meat instead of tending to the fire. His pursuit for killing a pig is symbollizing a sexual desire built into human nature. While he was out pursuing the pig, the fire went out.
Therefore, the ending of the wolves finding them made it equal, so they did deserve their fate. In conclusion in “The Interlopers” the two men, Ulrich and Georg deserve their fate at the end of the story because; they were originally there hunting each other, they bickered quite a bit after the tree had fallen and showed their hate, once one had realized that there was about a fifty/fifty chance for life they decided to make an effort to be friends again. First, the men had originally came to hunt one another and ended up both dying, it’s only fair. Also they had been very hateful and rude to each other and then had the audacity to be friend again. This is something that is wrong, they are only worried about their safety.
They become savage and they all changed because of Jack, one example would be how he stole fire from Ralph just to cook their meats. Then he tries to kill Ralph in the end since he sees him as threat where in actuality he’s the only one left who’s civilized. The reader sees that Jack has lost his sense of humanity and has gone overboard; having this savage mindset about him. He not only leads the slaughter of a pig but then continues to lead the brutal death of Simon. They were acting out wh... ... middle of paper ... ...that he still cares.
