Transcript of Lord of the Flies Chapter 1 and 2

The climax is when the boys realize that they are on an island, and there are no adults on it, so they must learn how to survive on their own. The trigger incedent is when Ralph blows the conch, calling all the kids on the island together to do a head count of the children, learn names, and establish a chief. The book starts off when Piggy and Ralph meet after the plane crash, and Piggy suggest what they should do next. Lord of the Flies
Chapter 1 and 2 C h a r a c t e r i z a t i o n Ralph Physical Emotional "The boy with fair hair..." (Golding, p.1) "[Ralph] was old enough, twelve years and a few months, to have lost the prominent tummy of childhood; and not yet old enough for adolescence to have made him akward." (Golding, p. 5) "[Piggy] was shorter than the fair boy..." (Golding, p.1) (Mischievous) "`Aren't there any grown-ups at all?'
`I don't think so.'
The fair boy said this solemnly; but then the delight of a realized ambition overcam him." (Golding, p. 2) (Arrogant) "[Piggy] hesitated for a moment then spoke again,
`What's your name?'
`Ralph.'" (Golding, p. 3) (Natural Leader) 1. "The Sand trembling beneath the heat-haze..."
(Golding, 14) "Ralph raised his hand for silence."
'All right. Who wants Jack for cheif?'
With dreary obidience the choir raised their hands.
'Who wants me?'
Every hand outside the choir except Piggy's was raised...
[Ralph] 'I'm cheif then.'" 2. "The great rock loitered, poised on one toe, decided not to return, moved through the air, fell, struck, turned over, leapt droning through the air, and smashed a deep hole in the canopy of the forest."
(Golding, 25) Literary Terms Relationship with other Characters 1) Ralph and Piggy:

-jealousy and sheer rivalry between the two (to be named chief)
-the two almost seem to bond during the expedition up the mountain Flat or Dynamic? -hard to say
-hopefully DYNAMIC
-Ralph could mature and grow
-new knowledge could be acquired
-change is possible through the novel S y m b o l i s m T o p i c s / T h e m e T u t o r i a l T o p i c Class Discussion Who is the strongest leader of the 4 boys? Why do you think so? What leadership qualities do they have? What makes a good leader? Is there anything about them that DOES NOT make them a strong leader? Are they missing any KEY leadership qualities? Who is the weakest leader? Why do you think so? What qualities are they lacking? Could these qualities be developed? Could there be a change in CHIEF throughout the novel? Why or why not? Ralph, Piggy, Jack, and Simon are all potential leaders, but each have very different approaches to the issues faced on the island. Discovery of the Conch Ralph: "The shell was interesting and pretty and a worthy plaything." (Golding, p. 11 Swallows and Amazons- Piggy: [To Ralph]
"`We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us-'" (Golding, p. 12) Choosing a Leader Ralph: "`Shut up,' said Ralph absently. He lifted the conch. `Seems to me we ought to have a chief to decide things.'" (Golding, p. 18) Piggy: "Every hand outside the choir except Piggy's was raised immediately. Then Piggy, too, raised his hand grudgingly into the air." Jack: "`I ought to be chief,' said Jack with simple arrogance." The Pig Building a Signal Fire Topics Theme P o i n t o f V i e w 3rd Person Swallows and amazons is like Lord of the Flies, because it is about a group of kids who have a bunch of adventures on an island about camping, fishing, exploring, and other stuff, which is what the kids in the lord of the flies had to do. Treasure Island- "He looked around fiercely, daring them to contradict. Then they broke out into the sunlight and for a while they were busy finding finding a devouring food..." (Golding, p. 29) e i Treasure Island is like Lord of the Flies because some of the book takes place off a tropical island, which is the kind of island that the kids in the Lord of the Flies are on. P l o t G r a p h Coral Island- Introduction
Trigger Incident Rising Action Climax The rising action is when Ralph is voted chief of the island, and he decides to go on an expedition up the mountain with Jack and Simon. Falling Action
(Denoument) Conclusion Allusion Coral Island and Lord of the flies are kind of the same, because they are both about survivors of certain types of crashes, and the survivors have to survive on their own on a tropical island. In the first chapters of the novel, the boys have shed their social mores, and cannot be civil without the guidence of adults. This foreshadows that later on in the book, the boys will be uncivilized, careless, and may not be able to function as society should. The falling action is when the boys decide that they should go up on top of the mountain and make a signal fire that will alert a ship if one passes by. The boys get the signal fire going with lots of smoke, and they decide that they will need to build shelters on the beach. 1) Fear of the Unknown

2) Rivalry

3) Destructiveness

4) Social Mores

"They had guessed before that this was an island: clambering among the pink rocks, with the sea on either side..." (Golding, p. 26) "On either side rocks, cliffs, tree-tops, and a steep slope: forward there, the length of the boat, a tamer descent, tree-clad, with hints of pink: and then the jungly flat of the island, dense green, but drawn at the end to a pink tail." (Golding, p. 26) [The coral reef] "Inside was peacock water, rocks and weed showing as in an aquarium; outside was the dark blue of the sea. (Golding, p. 26) Ralph: "`You should stick a pig,' said Ralph fiercely." (Golding, p. 29) Jack: "He raised his arm in the air. There came a pause, a hiatus, the pig continued to scream... then the piglet tore loose and scurried into the undergrowth." (Golding, p. 28) All: "`Why didn't you-?'
They knew very well why he [Jack] hadn't: because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood." (Golding, p. 28) Ralph: "`If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire.'" (Golding, p. 37) Piggy: "`The first thing we ought to have made was shelters down there by the beach. It wasn't half cold down there in the night. But the first time Ralph says "fire" you goes howling and screaming up this here mountain. Like a pack of kids!'" (Golding, p. 45) Jack: "`I'll split up the choir-my hunters, that is- into groups, and we'll be responsible for keeping the fire going.'" (Golding, p. 42) Conch: democracy, order, justice Island: Miniature Society The Boys: the different people within society Signal Fire The way to communicate with civilization Pig Jack's leadership,
foreshadows the upcoming madness "`We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us.'" (Piggy, Pg. 12) "`Thats what this shell's called. I'll give the conch to the next person to speak. He can hold it while hes speaking.'" (Ralph, Pg. 31) “There's another thing. We can help them to find us. If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire.” (Ralph, p.37) “I was choosing a place,” said Jack. “I was just waiting for a moment to decide where to stab him.” (Jack, p.29) 1) “There aren’t any grown-ups. We shall have to look after ourselves.’ The meeting hummed and was silent.” (Ralph, p.31) 2) “Even the choir applauded; and the freckles on Jack’s face disappeared under a blush of mortification.” (Golding, p.19) 3) “The bushes were dark evergreen and aromatic and then many buds were waxen green and folded up against the light. Jack slashed at one with his knife and the scent spilled over them.” (Golding, p.28) “He snatched his knife out of the sheath and slammed it into a tree trunk.” (Golding, p.29) S tt n g
