"What about the littleuns? Someone's got to look out for them."
-Ralph (pg. 101)
Proof of goodness in the boys:
Ralph cares for the little boys. He thinks they need to be looked after because they are not capable like the older ones.
"You'll get back to where you came from."
-Simon (pg.11)
Simon was reassuring Ralph who was beginning to be frightened. Simon's words encouraged the boys to hope for rescue and raised their spirits which allowed them to continue to have a positive attitude. Simon does not allow the boys to give up.
Even if these boys had not been stranded on the island, they would still have represented goodness. They would not have been forced to make the same decisions but in the end their goodness would have found a way to express itself. It is someone's personality that make them a good or evil person. Piggy's innocence and purity would have been the same. No matter what the situation he would have cared for the younger kids...
ROGER is an
example of
evil
He is a very cold-hearted and violent boy. During the novel, he loved being cruel to the Littleuns and he also killed Piggy. With this act of murder, Roger also destroyed knowledge and civilization. Not only was he evil because of his personality, but he became a black hole that sucked in everything good left on the island.
SYMBOLS:
Lord of The Flies- Devil
The beast- the boys evil nature
Face paint- lets the boys hides from their duties and responsibilities
Sharpened sticks- growth of the boys evil and their unending thirst for blood.
Some people will always abuse or take advantage of others. They will bully them and mistreat them whenever the opportunity presents itself. Society cannot predict who the bullies will be but the majority of human beings are good so laws, and social conventions are there to keep the evil from hurting the good. The strategies humankind have developed to achieve this are not perfect. Sometimes nations choose to be led by people like Stalin or Hitler. This is why we need novels like Lord of the Flies to remind us that we must be always be on the look out for those people who are like Jack and Roger.
Quotes showing evil in the boys:
"They're hopeless. The older ones aren't any better."
-Ralph (pg.50)
Ralph is irritated by the boys failure to understand their situation on the island. He is angry that even the older boys fail to make a proper effort.
"The conch doesn't count on top of the mountain, so you shut up."
-Jack (pg. 42)
Jack is being rude and selfish because he does not want to hear what Piggy has to say. He makes a new rule by insisting that the conch doesn't matter on the mountain. Jack is annoyed with Piggy and denigrates him.
