“Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” Jack was one the older kids on the island. He was in charge of the choir group when the boys first got the island. Instead he got addicted to killing pigs. In the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, jack was symbolic of evil and jealousy.
(Law and Order) "We've got to have rules and obey them. After all, we're not savages. We're English, and the English are best at everything. So we've got to do the right things." (Golding 42)
Since the beginning, the differences between Ralph, the elected leader, and Jack, the appointed head of the hunters, are made apparent. After Ralph had been chosen as chief, he realized that Jack wanted to be chief, so as a sign of friendship, he stated that, “Jack’s in charge of the choir. They can be—what do you want them to be” (23)? Although Ralph was elected as chief, he shows compassions towards Jack, someone who greatly desires to be in charge, by giving him the authority to lead the Choir. During the first disagreement between Ralph and Jack, Jack states that, “We want meat…“to which Ralph replies, “We need shelters (51).”Jack, fixated on hunting, doesn’t bother to listen to Ralph and help build the shelters that the “little ‘uns” so desperately require. As Ralph tries to talk to Jack about being rescued, Jack ponders for a moment and replies, “Rescue? Yes, of course! All the same, I’d like to catch a pig first—“(53). This suggests that Jack would rather catch a pig than be rescued.
William Golding’s Lord of the Flies is known worldwide for its detailed theme and altering symbols. The novel tells the exhilarating story of a group of young British boys stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. Lord of the Flies examines the barbaric side of humans as the boys, one by one, turn against one another. William Golding had the ability to see the worst in human nature and identify how “decent minded” people can easily be swayed to act in ghastly ways towards others. Golding’s vision is recalled from his time served in World War II. Lieutenant Golding fought planes, submarines, and battle ships at the sinking of the Bismarck. He goes on to explain, “I began to see what people were capable of doing. Anyone who moved through
The power-hungry will often feel the need for absolute control, hardly ever getting what they desire, they will often be portrayed as crazy and vicious. The same can be said for Jack; all he wants is to be the leader and make the decisions, but Ralph is the one in control. Jack’s desire for power is ruining his own image, and the well being of the other boys. Without the supervision of adults his morals and values took a turn for the worst.
“Bartleby is blind but he sees. The lawyer has eyesight but he is blind. Unlike Bartleby, he does not know where he is. He is in prison without knowing it. He has learned nothing. He has gained no insight into himself or into his society, and he has gained no understanding of Bartleby’s rebellion. He has denied his own capacity to love. What remains is only the sentimentality that emerges in his final words of pity and self-pity. “Ah Bartleby! Ah Humanity!” (Melville, p. 45) (Shulman, p. 22)
Symbol: The long hair represents how long they have been on the island. The “painted faces and long hair” symbolize savagery. Jack paints his face and it makes him feel as if he is one with nature to symbolize his savagery.
William Golding’s Lord of The Flies follows a group of young boys who are stranded on an island after their plane crashes, and leaves them with no adults to look after them. When the children are brought together, after Ralph blows conch shell that he and Piggy found together, another group of boys shows up last. They seem to be described in a rather ominous fashion. “Then the creature stepped from the mirage on to the clear sand, and they saw that the darkness was not all shadow but mostly clothing.” (p19) Although this is just a bunch of young boys walking up the beach, the way Golding compares them to a creature and darkness makes it seem like there is something evil walking toward Ralphs and the group. Later in the book, all of the boys develop a rational fear that there is some sort of “beast” in the forest. In reality, as
Charles Dickens, a well-known writer, once said "Subdue your appetites, my dears, and you've conquered human nature." While the thought of not having complete control of my actions and thoughts means I'm doing what's in my nature is uncomfortable, I see the truth and reasoning behind the statement. The quote can be clearly reflected in the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding. In the book, a group of boys get stranded on an island with no grownups. As the boys struggle to survive and stay connected with society, the primitive nature of the boys begin to appear. In the end, the group has completely disconnected from society and seem to have reverted to a more tribal like behavior. The boys fall to savagery is described in several ways.
Lord of the Lies is a book about savagery, power, control, intelligence and loss of innocence. However, from the beginning one of the main characters; Jack demonstrates almost all the themes that the novel shows us. We see that Jack is bigger and stronger than all the other boys, but all he wants to do is hunt; he does not care about being rescued. The hunting gradually turns more vicious and powerful. Golding uses Jack to explain and portray dictatorship, power, savagery and growing up too fast.
As stated before, Gilman was also a female activist and spokesperson for women. In the amusing novel Herland, it speaks about women and the ideal world where women are free to express their personal and cultural identities living in their own Utopia. The novel focuses on three main characters, Terry Nicholson, Jeff Margrave, and Vandyck Jennings. Nicholson is an ignorant misogynist traveler and is also very wealthy, Jeff is a high-quality doctor who admires the thought of women, and Jennings is a sociologist whose interpretations on women are more practical than the other gentleman. Clearly, each of the men signifies the diverse categories of the male outlooks on women. As to my surprise, Jeff being a doctor, romanticizes women as southern
In the book, A Tale Of Two Cities, Dickens starts with the famous quote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...” (Dickens, Chapter 1). The book takes place in two areas, London, England and Paris, France. The people of France, specifically the peasants, were suffering through starvation, high taxes, and overall neglect from the government. Meanwhile England is beginning to shift into the Industrial Revolution, which can be considered one of the country’s highest point in history. They were able to mass produce and thus strive with the money the earn from their products. In comparison, France was in crippling debt from the wars they had managed to involve themselves in.
