“What wrong with that boy Doc, why’s he so afraid to be with the other children?” Inquired the captain.
“He said something about seeing what was behind the paint and to watch for the beast, all sorts of nonsense, I think that island has got his head all screwed up.” Remarked the doctor as he took out his pad. “His vital signs are stable and once we test this blood will see if he’s got a virus of some sort, or it could be that he’s just plain mad, had a nervous breakdown the poor chap.” The doctor shook his head sadly as he reviewed his notes.
“If anything we should worry about those other boys, yelling and fighting each other and asking for meat and a pig so that they can hunt. Kill the pig, slit her throat, bash her in. Now they’re the …show more content…
He took another step and the door slammed behind him. He turned and returned to the door he turned the knob, but the knob would not turn. He heard more giggling high pitched and madding. All around him a swarm of boys threw themselves on top of him holding him down as his hands and feet were bound he could hear someone barking orders.
“Tie him down, don’t let the pig escape, we will have our hunt again!” There was cheering and then an immediate hush Dr. Brown struggled as the boys began to lift themselves from him he tried to cry out, but a mount of cloth was shoved into his mouth. He heard a faint chant and the patter of feet begin to swell around him.
“Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Kill the pig! Bash him in!” The chant continued until one of the savages barked an order and the boys fell silent once again.
“Now that we have our weapons again we can hunt again, the beast is no longer a threat, no longer do we have to share our prize, savages the hunt is ours, once we kill Ralph no one will stop us, we’ll have fun until the game is done!” Dr. Brown recognized the voice the figure when the voice came from grew closer to him and in the pitch black he could not see what the figure held in his hand Dr. Brown struggled and starting dragging himself toward the door.
“Little `uns hold the pig down or I swear one of you will be next,” the figure commanded. The little `uns obeyed
Chapters 1-3 Ralph seems a bit stressed. He was recently made leader of the group and seems pretty lost in all his decisions. He seems to hate his position, but doesn’t want to give it up. He is a bit of a bad influence since he is scaring the younger ones and also makes fun of piggy. Piggy is in a tough situation.
The theme from chapter 5 tells that Ralph is losing his innocence quickly, but gaining an understanding of natural processes not available to him in the sheltered society he came from. “With a convulsion of the mind, Ralph discovered dirt and decay”. At that moment, he began to trot toward the platform and the civilization it represents, in a physical reaction to the abstract truth newly present within him. Ralph is sick of the savagery he sees around him, but this savagery is characterized by accumulated dirt. The physical filth on the surface becomes a symbol of the metaphorical filth of evil residing in each boy, that itself will soon struggle to be unleashed on the
In chapter 3 William Golding has efficaciously utilised descriptive language in order to describe Simon’s perception of the island and the type of mood it creates in respect to the sun and light present on the island. In accordance to Simon’s perspective, the island at this given stage is exemplified as attributing a pleasant, fine and also careless-like mood, which is evident through the following; ‘bars of honey-coloured sunlight’. This quote conveys the impression that the sunlight is akin to a tropical paradise, through the decisive use of descriptive language choice. Conversely, in chapter 8 the mood being delivered in relation to the island is epitomised as dark and mysterious, which in conjunction provides numerous levels of uncertainty. This can be demonstrated through the manner in which Golding utilises descriptive
This book is about a group of people on a transport plane getting shot down over the ocean and crashing into a thick jungle on an island. Two boys find each other and go to the beach. They find a shell on the beach that can be used as a trumpet. They blow into the shell and boys start coming onto the beach.
In the beginning of the chapter the twins, Sam and Eric, are tending to the fire when they discover a dead man in a parachute that is tangled in the trees beside them. Of course they think this is the beast. Sam, and Eric go sprinting to the shelters to get Ralph. Ralph with the encouragement of Jack agrees that they will go hunt down the beast, although Ralph is afraid of this hunt. After they begin this great hunt the boys come across a rock bridge, but only Ralph wants to go search inside. Once Ralph completes his search he concludes that the beast is not there. The boys relieved notice that this bridge would be perfect for a fort, but Ralph is uninterested in that because he notices that the fire has gone out once again. Since Ralph is
Jack angered and indignant decided to lead yet another hunt. This time he was in search of a pig for a feast but also to leave some of it to the beast. Jack and his hunters spotted a female pig as they were wandering into the forest. A black and pink pig was lying apart from all the trees with a row of piglets by her side that slept and squealed. The boys threw sharp spears at the chosen mother pig. The piglets scattered away and the mother impaled by the spear squealed and ran. The hunters ran after her tracing the pig-track and drops of blood painted along the path.

This is an answer to Question 1. In chapter 1, Piggy’s mention of an atomic blast prior to the events in the book and his conversation with Ralph helps to depict that Lord of the Flies was set on an uninhabited island around the 1950’s during an atomic war. The Lord of the Flies could have been set at the end World War 2 for on August 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima in Japan. The novel may be set on an uninhabited island for an example in chapter one Piggy states, “This is an island. At least I think it’s an island. That’s a reef out in the sea. Perhaps there aren’t any grownups anywhere.” The description of their location helps to provide a visual of where the boys are and Piggy, who has proven to be intellectual, provides
“Well, I think we should make a stand!” they said. “Let’s go!” The smarter animals, particularly Harry, stayed back at their homes. About a half an hour later, the animals that went to see the leaders came back. Most of them were beaten and torn, and some of them were bleeding.
Therefore, she turned to the kids and commanded, “I need you all to sit in a group as close as you can get.” She organized them in a clump, again in the center of the tight space. Once they were settled, she announced, “I’ll be right back, I’m going to go get firefighters and we will be free. I promise everything will be okay. You have to listen to me. Sit still and do not move. I need you to yell for help while I’m gone in case a firefighter is near, because he will hear you and find you. I will be right back.” The kids nodded and with that she turned away from them. “Start yelling and turn around!” she demanded. This way, they might not hear her screaming in pain and would not have to watch her leave them either.
Throughout most of the story, the narrator responds carefully and acts submissive to make it out alive during what he calls “ the battle royal”(178). The narrator gives a well-thought out speech and receives an invitation to give the speech again in front of an audience in a hotel. He no sooner arrives when a man tell him, “Since I was there I might as well take part in the battle royal to be used as entertainment” (178), The statement “as entertainment” (178) shows these men view these students as animals. They are using these boys as a form of entertainment, and the narrator is just hoping to get some form of recognition for his speech. Regardless of how the narrator was feeling, the men’s voices were fueling his desire to keep going and
