  • A Comparison And Contrast Of Lord Of The Flies And Heart Of Darkness - 398 words
    A Comparison and Contrast of Lord of the Flies and Heart of Darkness Achebe uses positive tone in his description of the African jungle; whereas, Conrad makes use of negative connotations. Their portrayals of the jungle reflect their attitudes toward their subject; Achebe sees it as a hospitable home whereas Conrad sees a tragic trap. Conrad utilizes words with negative connotations, such as Arioted, Amob, Avengeful, and Agloom to portray the jungle as an inauspicious place. He makes use of diction such as, "Whether it meant war, peace, or prayer we could not tell..." to further portray the jungle as an Aunknown planet," a place of hostile unfamiliarity. Conrad feels the "white man's burden" ...

  • A Symbol In Lord Of The Flies - 702 words
    A Symbol In Lord Of The Flies The symbol of fire is used throughout the entire book, Lord of the Flies. Although it is mentioned only briefly throughout, the significance of these occurrences has a strong effect on the characters, book, and the reader.

The fire is first mentioned in chapter three when Ralph decides that it is needed if they wish to ever be rescued. It is again reintroduced in chapter eight when Piggy suggests that it should be moved to the beach on which they are inhabiting. Fire is later mentioned in chapters ten and eleven as the central conflict in the book at that time. This symbol ...

  • Comparison Of Lord Of The Flies And All Quiet On The Western Front - 1,252 words
    Comparison of Lord of The Flies and All Quiet on The Western Front An author's view of human behavior is often reflected in their works. The novels All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque and Lord of the Flies by William Golding are both examples of works that demonstrate their author's view of man, as well his opinion of war. Golding's Lord of the Flies is highly demonstrative of Golding's opinion that society is a thin and fragile veil that when removed shows man for what he truly is, a savage animal. Perhaps the bet demonstration of this given by Golding is Jack's progression to the killing of the sow. Upon first landing on the island Jack, Ralph, and Simon go to survey the ...

  • In His Novel, Lord Of The Flies, William Golding Uses The Character Of Piggy To Represent Knowledge And Order Piggy Is A Shor - 312 words
    In his novel, Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses the character of Piggy to represent knowledge and order. Piggy is a short, overweight boy who wears glasses. He is afflicted with asthma and doesn't care to do strenuous work on the island. He tries very hard to cling to civilization, and tries his best to keep peace. While probably the smartest boy on the island, he lacks any social skills whatsoever, and has trouble communicating or fitting in with the others. For instance, after Piggy and Ralph converse for a short while and Piggy recognizes Ralph's leadership qualities, Piggy promptly urged, " We can use this (conch) to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us-- ...

  • Load Of The Flies - 384 words
    Load Of The Flies LORD OF THE FLIES My report is about the very well known book Lord of the flies, by William Golding. There are many characters in this book, but the most important ones are Ralph, Jack, Simon, Piggy, and Roger. When I read this book I discovered a great change in most of their personalities, especially Jack's. So I would say that they are all dynamic characters. Ralph, in the beginning of the novel, had a boyish personality. Then later on in the novel, he became much more mature due to the fact that all of them had to live in a more civilized manner to get a long and to survive while waiting to be rescued. Jack, in the beginning of the novel was Ralph's most powerful antago ...

    Lord Of Flies Why is it that when people are placed in situations where sanity and reason are the keys to survival, people go crazy and end up ruining their chances to live? All that they needed to ensure a chance for their rescue was the fire. I don't see what is so hard about that. The fire gives off smoke, they then see the smoke as a signal showing inhabitants on the island, then passers-by will go and search for them. Plain and simple! Why did you require us to read this book? I can think of one reason, being that no matter how old you are, morals and law are necessary for survival. Yet, I still believe that this book, despite its strong message, was weak and uninteresting. What was so ...

  • Lord Of Flies - 1,091 words
    Lord Of Flies This was one of the most interesting books I have ever read. It is very addictive and very well written. Though I am a slow reader, it did not take long for me to finish it. I spent four days reading this book and on weekends I put it down during meals. Lord of the Flies kept my interest with very little slow moving dialogue and lots of vivid description. The thing I probably liked the most about Lord of the flies was the theme of the story. This topic was very intriguing. It dealt with many flaws and desires of human nature, and how devastating these factors van be to a culture with no directions or rules to follow. I enjoyed how the story showed that even the youngest and mos ...

He is the most complete, most human, and most heroic of the characters in the novel, and the one with whom readers most readily identify. Jack Merridew: "He was tall, thin, and bony, and his hair was red beneath the black cap. His face was crumpled and freckled, and ugly without silliness." A cruel and ugly bully, he early develops a taste for violence. He is a leader of the choir at first, and then of the hunters. His leadership resides in his ability to threaten and frighten those under him. He is always ...

  • Lord Of Flies By William Golding - 1,610 words
    Lord Of Flies By William Golding William Goldings Lord of the Flies is a sordid tale about a group of kids who are stranded on a deserted island after their plane crashes. The story is set during the Atomic War and plenty of references are made to the fact. However, the real key to the story lies in the role of Beelzebub, Lord of the Flies. Beelzebub has a central role in the story as he represents the Beast, or evil, that dwells within all humans. The Beast cannot be hunted and since it dwells within all humans, humans are all guilty because mankind is sick. The destruction of mankind is a point that Golding makes apparent often in this novel. He establishes early on that Beelzebub is a for ...

    Lord Of The Flies Lord of the Flies Without societys rigid rules, savagery and anarchy can come to light. This is one of the many themes expressed in William Goldings, Lord of the Flies, and by far the most important. It is exemplified throughout his novel with Jack and his tribe, Ralph and Piggy, and other key characters and symbols. Jacks anarchistic ideas come to view when he forms his tribe, this group would be the more savagery part of humankind. With them, Golding is showing that when or if left alone to fend for themselves, they will go back to the roots of their ancestors and the savageness of them. (i.e. When the tribe is hunting for Ralph near the end.) It is also shown with the Tr ...
