Simon In William Golding's Lord Of The Flies

Satisfactory Essays

I both agree and disagree with Simon. I feel as though the SS man should have treated Simon like more of an individual, instead of having him/asking him to be there only as a symbol, a symbol for all the Jewish people he ever made suffer unspeakable crimes. If this was establish before his request of forgiveness maybe Simon wouldn’t have been silent. I don’t, however, feel that the SS man’s treatment of him as a representative of a religious people is incorrect or immoral. Only the context of which he does this.
