Thematic Statement
- Attempt to "put things straight" to restore order.
- Loyalties are divided; leadership questioned.
Represents sanity, order and leadership, among boys turned into to savages.
"This meeting must not be fun, but business." pg. 81

Jack and Ralph are two characters alike in role, but very different in behaviour.

'Who cares?'
The dialogue between the two emphasizes their differences:
Ralph summoned his wits. 'Because the rules are the only thing we've got!'
"The world, that understandable and lawful world, was slipping away. Once there was this and that; and now- and the ship had gone." pg. 98
"What are we? Humans? Or animals? Or savages? Whats grown ups going to think? Going off- hunting pigs-letting fires out-and now?" pg. 98
"The sound of mock hunting, hysterical laughter and a real terror came from the beach." pg. 99
" 'The rules!' shouted Ralph, 'you're breaking the rules!' 'Who cares?'" pg. 99
