    Maybe because the other boys were like afraid to (Fear of the Unknown?) or something? He also discovered the truth? Idk help?

    1. What symbols does Golding use to show that civilization has been destroyed on the island?
    2. What do you think is meant by "They understood only too well the liberation into savagery that the concealing paint brought"?

    Another theme that appears several times in The Lord of the Rings is the conflict between nature and industry. Tolkien had been raised in the countryside and was very attached to nature, so you could understand his disappointment with his fellow humans when industry and machines began taking over. Because of his childhood home, he made a noticeable connection between evil and metal by making the Shire a rural place and filling Mordor and Isengard (the antagonists) with machines, forges, fire, wheels, and other objects associated with manufac.

    well im not going to write the whole essay with you, but you could say that the full presentation of jacks character provides the reader with excuses for jacks behavior. or reasons he committed action other than out of greed and blood thirst. like when he puts down piggy simply because it makes him a revered leader to have a scapegoat. you could ask the question of what anybody else would do in his situation. you could also provide contrast for how ralph chooses to lead, sympathetically instead of agressively, and how that turned out for them.

    Lord of the Flies is a 1954 novel by Nobel Prize -winning English author William Golding. The book's premise focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their attempt to govern themselves, with disastrous results.

    Published in 1954, Lord of the Flies was Golding's first novel. Although it was not a great success at the time—selling fewer than three thousand copies in the United States during 1955 before going out of print—it soon went on to become a best-seller. It has been adapted to film twice in English, in 1963 by Peter Brook and 1990 by Harry Hook , and once in Filipino (1976).

    Jack will use rhetoric like asking who wants to have fun on the island as opposed to listening to Ralph and having to do chores. He will often imply his strength as opposed to Ralph''s weakness.

    Jack''s new "compulsion" is hunting. Ralph is angry because Jack doesn''t help with anything else. He feels there are other priorities.

    A group of young boys are stranded alone on an island. Left to fend for themselves, they must take on the responsibilities of adults, even if they are not ready to do so. Inevitably, two factions form: one group (lead by Ralph) want to build shelters and collect food, whereas Jack's group would rather have fun and HUNT; illustrating the difference between civilization and savagery.

    Is evil innate within the human spirit, or is it an influence from an external source? What role do societal rules and institutions play in the existence of human evil? Does the capacity for evil vary from person to person, or does it depend on the circumstances each individual faces? These questions are at the heart of Lord of the Flies which, through detailed depictions of the boys' different responses to their situation, presents a complex articulation of humanity's potential for evil.

    The forest glade that Simon retreats to in Chapter Three is another example of how the boys' loss of innocence is registered on the natural landscape of the island. Simon first appreciates the clearing as peaceful and beautiful, but when he returns, he finds The Lord of the Flies impaled at its center, a powerful symbol of how the innocence of childhood has been corrupted by fear and savagery.

    Well, hopefully you read the book, it has a lot of symbolism in it that is good, but Jack in the end, kills, and starts his own tribe, but he beats them if they do something wrong, he is not civilized.

The story, which takes place during an undefined war, begins when a group of English schoolboys survive a plane crash and find themselves stranded on a desert island without any adults. This might seem like an enticing opportunity for any teen seeking freedom, but the group soon degenerates into a mob, terrorizing and even killing each other.

    Jack s tribe hunts and kills a real pig, and sticks the head of the animal on a spear. Group members paint their faces and begin a frenzied worship of the pig s head, including sacrifices to the beast. Golding later explained that the pig s head -- the "lord of the flies" -- is literally translated from the biblical Hebrew, " Beelzababug ," which is another name for Satan. During this satanic worship, the boys kill one another of their own, Simon.

    "The Lord of the Flies" by William Golding , was first published in 1954 and was instantly controversial. The twisted coming-of-age story tells the tale of a group of schoolboys stranded on a desert island after a plane crash. It s by far Golding s best-known work.
