“Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” Jack was one of the older kids on the island. He was the leader of the choir group when they first got to the island. Instead, he got addicted to killing and stabbing pigs. In the novel Lord of the Flies by Willian Golding, Jack was most symbolic of evil and jealousy. In the novel Lord of the Flies, Jack showed the key characteristics of being evil. One of the many ways he demonstrated evil was by the chant “Kill the pig! Cut his throat! Spill the blood!” This quote symbolized evil because there should not be a young kid talking/chanting extremely graphically for his age. It also represented evil because of the fact that Jack himself was the one who came up with the chant. An example of his evilness would be when jack attacked Ralphs group at night, to steal Piggy’s spectacles. This represented evil because if he wanted to start a fire he could have found a way to do it himself and not…show more content… The first example of Jack’s jealousy was when Ralph was first elected as chief. This showed his jealousy because he got mad when the other boys chose Ralph and not him as leader. Also because he was not accepting with the fact that Ralph was chief. Another example of Jacks jealousy was when his group did not have a fire going. This showed his envy because he wanted that fire to cook the pig, he killed. Also because Jack and his group went to go steal Piggy’s spectacles; all leading back to the fact that he was jealous. The last and final event that showed his jealousy was when he said, “I’m going off by myself. He can catch his own pigs.” This was when the rest of the boys reelected for chief, and no one chose him. This showed Jacks jealousy because instead of being okay with the fact that no one chose him, he got infuriated/jealous and then left. As a final result, those were some of the events that demonstrated Jacks jealousy in the
In the novel Lord of The Flies, by William Golding, Golding portrays Jack as an animal to show how human nature can become savage without structure. For instance in this scene jack is covertly hunting for pigs as an animal of the forest. “Doglike uncomfortable on all fours…”(Golding 48). This quote helps illustrate how Jack is crouched down just like how a dog is which shows that the longer he stays on the island, the more like an animal he becomes. This shows how human nature is become savage without…

Relevance of Adults in Lord of the Flies
In today’s society, adults naturally run the world as children stand by their sides watching and learning, only soon to become adults themselves. In the novel Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, a group of boys have to experience adulthood at an early age. The story unfolds when they crash land on an island and have to survive on their own without the supervision of adults. With all their best…
tacos. This PSA is trying to raise awareness amongst people about fake images being put in the advertisement just to persuade people to buy their products. I am relating this to the characters in the play who are not like what they appear to be.
Analysis: Theme Connection – Appearance vs. Reality
Macbeth starts off being a very good and loyal to his king, but as the play evolves on he showed his true colours. Just like how the taco that is shown in the advertisement looks very pretty and delicious…
William Golding’s Lord of The Flies represents an example of outstanding literature. Written in 1954, the book has become the subject of many critical essays and literary analysis. The book’s ability to be looked at through multiple literature lenses makes interpreting and breaking down the book complex. Many analyses of the book focus on society and social status, and do so for a reason. In William Golding’s Lord of The Flies, society and social classes become quite important. The stranded boys’…
William Golding, author of Lord of the flies uses syntax and imagery to set a tone of balance after Simon’s death. Firstly, the author uses syntax to communicate his tone. In the sentence, “The darkness, save for the useless oblong of stars, was blanket-thick,” (Golding, pg. 183) the author mentions the darkness but interrupts his thought by mentioning the stars. William Golding has implied throughout the novel that the stars suggest hope. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the author wants us…
amongst people is one that is hard to come by and William Golding’s classic allegorical masterpiece, Lord of the Flies, addresses one of the societies which fails to achieve this. In the midst of World War II, a group of young English boys is left in solitude on an island, because of a plane crash. After some thought, Ralph, a boy who eventually becomes the leader of the group, and his adversary Jack, another prominent figure throughout the story, decide they need to create a government on this island…

of human behavior. People have attempted to describe their own views on the subject, deeply
affected by their own experiences in life, through a myriad of mediums including art, music, and
literature; the latter being the most prominent and widely employed. Spanning from the…
