    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.

    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.

    Lord of the Flies is full of literary references in order to present visual images that are powerful and easy to see in the mind''''''''s eye. Golding''''''''s language remains uncomplicated and it is an allegory where the characters carry symbolic significance which enables Golding to convey the central themes and ideas through the boys'''''''' characters.

    Allegory is the rhetorical strategy of extending a metaphor through an entire narrative so that objects, persons, and actions in the text are equated with meanings that lie outside the text. Adjective: allegorical. Also known as  inversio , permutatio , and false semblant.

    One of the most famous allegories in English is John Bunyan s Pilgrim s Progress (1678), a tale of Christian salvation. Modern allegories include the films The Seventh Seal (1957) and Avatar (2009) as well as the novels Animal Farm (1945) and The Lord of the Flies (1954).

    Perhaps Simon could represent Religion himself? Think of Religions place *within* Politics. For instance, the Buddhist monk who burned himself alive to protest the war in Vietnam. This is something that happened in which Religion was a from of Politics. It is like Simon protesting the anger and fear in the minds of the others, but the anger and the fear leads to his death (this is perhaps not a relevant enough example though) But the persecution of the Jews is a good example. Simon was made into a scapegoat, and so became something the other boys could turn their fear or hatred towards. When he came out of the jungle, everyone was caught up in the excitement to stop and think about what they were doing. This is much like any scapegoat situation, where all the bad things going on are put onto one person or group or race, and reason is not seen until it is too late. Many German citizens knew of what was going on with the Holocaust, but everyone was too afraid or angry to do anything about it. Jack was the one who was trying to direct the other s fears, and so he could very well represent Hitler, and his companions are like Nazi s. The rest are just the frightened citizens.

    Alright sooo Simon represents a spiritual and biblical figure (Jesus Christ) and Piggy represents everything logical and practical. Piggy is the center of the political allegory which takes place in the novel but the boys don t listen to Piggy or Simon even though Simon is well informed through spirituality and Piggy is well informed through logic. Both Piggy and Simon came to the correct conclusion that the beast lies within the boy s and is a figment of their imaginations but the boys did not believe them and would have perished from it if they had not been saved. Good luck on your essay.
