II The Conflict... The main conflict in Lord of the Flies is that a fairly large group of boys have been stranded on an island in the Pacific with no adults around to lead and guide them. They do set up a leadership consisting of a chief, and then workers who carry out the chiefs orders. This works great for about a week, but soon the children tire of the work, and do not realize the long term consequences involved with not having necessities like shelter and a signal fire, and before long, fun rebels against common sense, turning the island into chaos. Eventually there is a war, the hunters against the worker/dreamers.
Those boys, who were on that island, were no older than 12 years old without any adult to supervise them. These boys are forced to get along and compromise to make decisions without any involvement of adults. These children were lacking civilization but, they faced many challenges that forced them to create a new society which changed them all. In the novel Lord of the Flies, William Golding deals with a lot of characters’ action to awake their inner self so as to tell the reader about the character. For instance, in order for the reader to be able to understand these boys, the author focuses on characterization.
1.) As the book continues you can see the maturity level of Jem, Scout, and Dill rise. They mature just like other boys and girls do, but the trial of Tom Robinson helped all three of the kids to learn a little more about life. The most important thing that the children learned was that, in life everyone is not treated fair. Their father Atticus showed them that it takes courage and self pride not only to live other but also to live with yourself.
The Lord of the Flies is based around these boys and their want to get off the island. Ralph and Piggy were the most focused on a rescue and had most concern over their group. At the beginning of the book, Ralph is very calm because of the reassuring thought of rescue from his father. “I could swim when I was five. Daddy taught me.
Leaders in society today are often praised for their position, as they represent or motivate their group to achieve a goal. This, is essentially the back bone of the novel, Lord of the Flies, by William Golding. The novel is about a group of boys deserted on an island after a plane crash. Two boys, named Ralph and Piggy, use a conch to summon the boys and create a civilized and lawful group, in their goal to be rescued. Most of the other boys, however, ignore their rules, and start talking about a beast.
Ralph and Jack are the two main boys who are in control of their own tribes. At first, Ralph is the leader of all of the boys. Ralph is a good boy at heart, he was not the strongest of the group but because of his popularity he was able to win over the other boys and become the leader of all of the boys in the beginning. Throughout the story, Ralph never wanted to believe that there was evil in him or the other boys. As the story progresses, Ralph has to try hard to keep the order of the grou... ... middle of paper ... ...years, human nature doesn’t change.
Meanwhile the boys tried to be badass and the best at what they did, and where more unconcerned over work. During this all the girls were covert about their needs and experiences, with the boys being open and prone to bragging. Both groups were able to agree that the girls had more problematic relations with one another. During her involvement with the students she noticed three different aspects of their gendered behavior. Firstly, there is the definite class and ethnic differences among the behaviors of the boys and girls.
Every person has that one person, that when they first meet they can not stand. But after a while they become acquaintances, then friends and finally best friends. In William Golding Lord of the Flies Ralph and Piggy have this type of friendship. Ralph is a very tall, strong and a good mentor for the boys on the island. Where as Piggy is always getting bullied for being obese, having glasses and having asthma which are major setback compared to the other boys.
Women seemed to be more emotionally involved in a conversation than men. Men protected themselves from being pushed around or dominated by women. Tannen talked about the participatory listenership where women were able to complete the sentence of a conversational partner. Men interpreted this practice as an interruption, lack of attention, and intrusion. Tannen explained, “Men take too literally women’s ritual ‘trouble talk,’ just as women mistake men’s ritual challenges for real attack” (Tannen 409).
Women, on the other hand, have serious conversations about their flaws unlike men. They live up to the stereotype of always talking and never listening when it comes to insecurities. If they listened, they would actually know men talk about their feelings too. Even though our society portrays men as the ones to lean on, they also can use a little boost of confidence. Even the toughest looking person has some uncertainties about him/herself.
