While the boys were disputing a rock was thrown at Piggy subsequently making him fall and die. Jack then proceeded to scream to Ralph that that’s what he deserved, approving Piggy’s murder. The Jury should find Jack Merridew guilty of Second Degree Murder in the death of Piggy. Granted, Jack Merridew himself did not kill Piggy; however, he did plan to kill anyone who was in his way when stealing Piggy’s glasses. “We’ll keep along the sands.
I’m part of you? Close, close, close! I’m the reason why it’s no go? Why things are what they are?” (Golding 158) The Lord of the Flies suggests that his presence is the reason for the boys’ descent into savagery and madness, beginning with the children’s fear of the beast’s existence, followed by Jack’s brutality when killing the pig as well as his transformation into a savage, finally culminating in the frenzied murder of Simon at the hands of the children who mistake him for the beast. While they are beating Simon to death they are also chanting "Kill the beast!
There was no words, no movements but the tearing of teeth and claws,”(153). Without giving Simon time to explain, the boys mistaken him for the beast and killed him without second thought. Golding uses these three quotes makes clear that the boys are over excited over a kill. They completely lost their humanity when they murder Simon. The boys are like a beast and their interest toward savagery and violenc... ... middle of paper ... ...was a leader in the choir, so he wanted to be the leader in the tribe.
Bash him in!” and repeatedly jabs Robert (Golding 125). These actions by Jack lead the reader to believe that he has changed into a lustful bloodthirsty savage ready to harm humans just a short time after the fall of a peaceful society. The chanting indicates that Jack has fallen into a primitive state demonstrating the lack of civility When Jack manages to achieves a position of leadership in a rule less society, he becomes ruthless to the boys, “the newly beaten and untied Wilfred [is] sniffling” (176). Jack’s actions demonstrate how much he has changed, from civil choir boy to a reckless savage tying and beating boys at random. Jack has started solving his problems the only way a bloodthirsty savage does, by violence.
Jack and his group of hunters, began to get a thrill from killing pigs. Jack and the hunters also lose all respect for Ralph and the conch. They start their own tribe, who soul purpose is to hunt and have rituals. The killings of the pigs start to bore them so they began to find other things to kill. The hunters start forcing people to join the tribe through threats.
With the ritual chant of "Kill him! Kill him!" Jack soon finds himself holding Robert "By the hair" whilst "Brandishing a knife" this part of the passage is also very important because we can even see that Ralph, who was "Fighting to get near" and finding "The desire to squeeze and hurt was over-mastering". Was normally one of the boys who would be least likely to participate in one of these savage "games". It is in these games were the boys get carried away and Ralph feels a
After one of the new groups hunts they cut off a sows head and put it on a spear, and stuck in the ground as an offering to the beast. Simon sees the dead man for what it really is and when he sees the pigs head it talks to him and tells him that his theory that the beast is actually just the boys fear of the unknown and it reveals itself to be the Lord of the Flies. When he goes to tell the other boys what he found out they mistake him for the beast and kill him out of fear. Jack's tribe realizes they cannot make cooking fires without Piggy's glasses so they ambush Ralph and the others in the night and steal Piggy's glasses. When Ralph, Piggy, Sam, and Eric go to speak with Jack's tribe to get Piggy's glasses back Ralph and Jack end up fighting, Sam and Eric get taken prisoner, and Roger kills Piggy.
When the savages come to steal Piggy’s glasses they start a fight. Instead of peacefully stealing the glasses the savages lash out at the boys leaving them bruised and bloodied. The fight that the savages provoke is an example of their violence which helps prove that the theme of the novel is that man is basically evil. A second way in which Golding demonstrates this, is the incident where Roger kills Piggy. Roger seems to kill Piggy, not because he is a threat, but because Roger seems to experience a primitive desire to kill.
After being continually rejected by not only his creator, but countless other humans based only on his gruesome appearance, the Monster decides to exact revenge on humankind and especially on Frankenstein for giving life to such a horrible creature as himself. Upon deciding this, the Monster decides to go to his hometown and l... ... middle of paper ... ... her beauty but knew that she would reject him as everyone else did, so he went on to frame her anyways. This shows that it was not lack of reflection that caused the Monster to commit this evil act, but the reflection process only served to help him justify why he should go through with the crimes. As he committed the acts, his heart no longer rebelled as it once did and he was overcome with “exultation and hellish triumph” (Shelley, pg. 378).
Surprisingly, when they kill Simon, they end up realising what they have done and are ashamed of themselves. All this is because of the beast, and the feelings of fear it created in the hearts of the boys. Overall, Golding creates many symbols in the novel which represent death and evil. He uses the beast to represent mans weaknesses and man's darkest side, which eventually kills them, even though created by them. The Actual story represents society and all of the symbols are correspondent to today's real life situations, but are just exaggerated a bit more and made into a story which explains these situations in a more interesting way.
