Transcript of Top 10: Conflicts in Lord of the Flies

10: Piggy vs. The Boys
Example: Piggy is targeted by the other boys due to his weight, glasses, and know-it-all attitude. This ends up making enemies and leads to his ultimate death.
8: Birthmark Boy vs. the Forest Fire
6: Simon vs. Lord of the Flies
Example: My interpretation of the Lord of the Flies is that it, or he, symbolizes a slow end for the boys, if they aren't rescued. He shows that he is powerful, and he also represents them killing off each other, leaving them dead, and therefore prey for the flies. Luckily, the ship sees the fire that the boys set to chase Ralph out of the forest, and they are rescued, just in time, but yet already too late for Simon, the birthmark boy, Piggy, and the two injured or possibly dead boys that Ralph blindly stabbed with the wooden stake when they had him cornered.
1: Ralph vs. Jack
Ralph and Jack are both wanting power over the boys, and both for different reasons. While Ralph is wanting to make responsible choices and make the chance of them being rescued greater, Jack craves power over the boys, and longs to have total control.

Example: Ralph faces off with his more conservative side more often then not, and his more levelheaded choices are not the popular ones. The younger boys see Jack's rituals as fun and games, while they are really playing as pawns in a psychotic's game. He has to make more risky decisions to keep the boys motivated and in check, but knows that it's sometimes not the best thing to do.
4: Boys vs. the Beast
Example: The boys are scared of the possibility of there being a beast from day one on the island. The birthmark boy claims it's a snake, and all of the others come up with their own, and each time more dramatic, interpretations. My adaptation of the real meaning of the beast is that the beast in fact is no else but each other. They all become beasts by the end of the book, even Simon and Piggy, in a sense. The beast is something that stirs when they have to take control, then takes control of them.
2: Jack vs. Himself
Type: Person vs. Self
Type: Person vs. Person
9: Little Boys vs. Fear
Type: Person vs. Self
Example: The younger boys are fearful of many things, and their fear originates in their longing for the security of adults and more dependable leaders. The lack of adults and security leads to much anxiety and fear of being forgotten and abandoned by the people they look up to. The abandonment they feel is typical of a child dealing with the loss or abandonment of a parent, they loose the protection and support that they need, both the mental and physical time,
Type: Person vs. Nature
Example: The boy with the large birthmark on his face disappears into the fire, their only hope of rescue, shortly after they finally start one. He isn't accounted for, and after the forest catches fire due to the boys negligence, Ralph realizes the young boy isn't accounted for.
7: Boys vs. Island
Person vs. Nature
Example: The group of adolescents are confused and nearly clueless when they begin their time on the island. Then, they are more levelheaded and sensible, but towards the end, when they become not obsessed with surviving, but with killing, they are less concerned with shelter and water and more concerned about blood. The island changes each and every one of the boys, pushing them to their breaking limit, and more often then not beyond that clear breaking point.
5: Ralph vs. Himself
Type: Person vs. Self
Type: Person vs. Supernatural
Type: Person vs. Supernatural
3: Piggy vs. Jack
Type: Person vs. Person
Jack needs someone to take his anger out on, and Piggy is the perfect person. He is an oddball, alienated from the other children by his weight, maturity, glasses, accent, and intellegiance. Piggy constantly questions Jack's authority, and it deepens the tension for
Due to the fact that throughout the book, it becomes more and more obvious that Jack possesses many symptoms of NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), and MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder), Anger Management, and BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), he becomes more and more high risk to committing crimes. He also shows Power Assertive Behavior, meaning he needs to become violent to restore his self image and confidence and to maintain control over others. He has a Type A Personality style, meaning he lacks self confident, is prone to spouts of aggression, and is competitive, driven, and more aggressive than the more calm and collected Type B Personality style. This makes his self control begin to fall away, and by the end he is almost in his true element, an extremely high risk offender, provoking people and manipulating vulnerable and weak people to follow his lead, which while they know isn’t good, he is able to convince them otherwise. He also gives them the shelter they crave, and the feeling that they belong without having to contribute too much to the group. He has a take a lot and give a little relationship with his followers by taking much of their identity, free will, and individuality, and giving them the sense that they are important and belong. By the end of the book, most profilers would come to the conclusion that Jack is at risk of becoming a worse offender when being reintegrated into society, and most likely crave that power over others again, recreating the scenario of the island, and the power and self confidence it brought him.
While Jack has lower self confidence then Ralph, he is completely enthralled with the image of himself that he wants to see; all powerful, in control, and a Godlike figure, a craving total power and control. He wants respect, and neither Ralph or Piggy give this to him, making them a threat to this ultimate self image he strives to achieve throughout the novel.
