I was adopted by parents who could barely afford to keep me. It was probably best that I was on the island.”
Lord of the Flies Chapter 6 Journal Entry Throughout chapter 6, Ralph becomes a more forceful leader as a result of his people become less civilized. Ralph seems desperate for his people to listen to him and as if he can’t get everyone together. For example, when everyone is saying they want to stay near the rock fort, Golding writes, “I say we’ll go on!’ shouted Ralph furiously,” (108). By Ralph “shouting furiously”, we see the weight of authority taking a toll on Ralph through the desperation in his tone. In this chapter, it becomes clear Ralph is getting tired of his responsibility as chief. When walking in a line, he let’s Jack lead the way. Golding says, “Ralph walked in the rear, thankful to have escaped responsibility for a time,” (103). Allegorically, if Ralph symbolizes civility and Jack symbolizes savagery, Ralph surrendering temporary leadership
At the meeting place, Ralph grips the conch shell and berates the boys for their failure to uphold the group’s rules. They have not done anything required of them: they refuse to work at building shelters, they do not gather drinking water, they neglect the signal fire, and they do not even use the designated toilet area. He restates the importance of the signal fire and attempts to allay the group’s growing fear
“I have to go and stop him now,” said Ralph, “you go and inform the officer immediately”
We fell out of the sky today. I don’t know where we crashed. Other boys were on the plane so they had to be around here somewhere, but there are no grownups—that’s what Ralph said. Ralph thinks we’re on an island and he’s been calling me “Piggy.” I don’t want him to call me that; that’s what the boys at school call me. He’s been making fun of my asthma too. Anyways, he said his dad is in the Navy and he’s going to come rescue us. Ralph spotted a shell in the water—I told him it was a conch—and I remember someone that had one and would blow into it and his mum would come. Ralph blew into it (it took a couple of tries), and then children started appearing. There were a bunch. There were these twins, Sam ‘n Eric and Jack Merridew and his choir.
When kids are left alone it will cause anarchy and destruction and to do things without reason A.K.A. to become savagest. Like in the Lord of the flies kids stuck in a place with no grown ups.Stuck on an island with no one but kids your age and no grown ups how would anyone not go savage when none of you know much of how to survive.The fire goes out while Jack and the hunters we're hunting pigs and after that jack leaves the group and some of the big kids leave with him and have a feast Simon is off on his own and came to the feast the other guy didn’t know it was him and they beat Simon to death. William Golding uses symbolism, nature imagery, and foreshadowing to view how fear has affected the boys to become savagest. In chapter 9 of The
In chapter 3 an argument breaks out between Ralph and Jack over the group's priorities. Ralph is trying to build shelters and an SOS fire while Jack and his hunters are craving some meat. I agree with Ralph wanting the priority to be on getting rescued and staying alive, but I disagree with him complaining about it because he is the leader and it's his job to get everyone working. With Jack I understand and agree that people will get tired of eating fruit and other foods similar to that, but I dislike how he's complaining when he's the one that is responsible for hunting. The argument that these two boys have are what I believe to be purely because of laziness. However if they don’t set things right, this problem is only going to
Lord of the Flies has many important themes and with an alternate ending, there are many new concepts for a theme introduced. Lord of the Flies has the theme of civilization versus savagery, which can be seen through Jack and Ralph. There are many similarities between the alternate ending and the original ending, but there are also many differences that can be noted. Lord of the Flies is a complex novel with a complex ending that can be analyzed to find the deeper meaning.
There is always a leader to lead you in the right direction, but that is up to you and who you think is a good leader as in this book. Commanders show people the right direction and prove themselves as good role models. Through the revolt of two boys, Golding demonstrate that civilization can be either destroyed or made better by the right leader.

As Michael James explains“They beat the shit out of you..They’re yelling ‘Stop resisting!’ Stop resisting!’ when you’re not even moving.”...I couldn't stand it no more...I’ve knocked myself out by running full force into the wall” (Tapley 216). He expresses hhow he wasnet doing anything and yet the guard would slam his head to wall,punh, poke and all while he was handcuffed.
