Transcript of Copy of Lord of the Flies - Chapter 7 - Group Prezi

No self-consciousness.
Treating decisions as though he were playing chess.
Only trouble was;
He would never be a very good chess player.
Sensing rising antagonism,
The boys stirred uneasily,
for the sun was sliding quickly toward the edge of the world
in a forest where shadows were never far to seek
As though they were a curse
He threatened them
to sample this fresh rub of two spirits in the dark
"Yes." By: Colleen Giesbrehct
Lord of the Flies:
Chapter 7

At the beginning of the chapter, the boys stop on the side of the mountain to eat some food. They then continued their journey up the mountain in search of the beast. As they climb, they find pig droppings and decide to hunt the pig instead of the beast. During the pig hunt, Ralph realizes how exhilarating it is to hunt. He throws his spear at the pig, wounding it. The pig then escapes, and the boys decide to make a camp. At their camp, the boys do a 'reenactment' of the killing of a pig. Instead of a pig, they use Robert. Robert is almost killed in the reenactment. Ralph tries to remind everyone that they were only playing a game. Night falls, and Ralph suggests that they wait until morning to continue their journey. Instead, Jack pressures Ralph into following him, and they make their way to the summit. There they see a shadowy figure, which they assume to be the beast. They run back to their main camp to warn the others.
Jack represents an autocratic government, authority, and savagery.

He lives for the hunt. Jokes about killing a littlun. 115

He pressures Ralph to act against his better judgement. 118-119
Ralph represents law, order,
morality, and the rebuilding of society. Ralph is represents civilization and modern society. However in this chapter, Ralph goes hunting for the first time. He starts to show his savage nature during the pig chase. Golding uses Ralph to show us the savagery that exists in human nature.
The spear represents murder and killing.
The Spear
Simon represents hope,
innocence, spirituality,
and being in-tune
with nature.
He volunteers to go back through the forest alone.
He is not afraid.

The bushes crashed ahead of the boys,
flung themselves wildly from the pig track and creepers
Ralph saw Jack, then the creature was bounding along the pig track
Ralph found he was able to measure distance and take aim
The boar only five yards away, hit the great snout
The boar's note changed to a squeal
The pig-run filled with shouting boys again
The boar floundered away form them.

Ralph is remembering a time from back home.
At home it describes Ralph as kind and innocent
and simple. But after the flashback it goes right to the
killing of the pig and you can see how much he has changed
since he has arrived at the island.
When Jack and Ralph are going to go up the mountain, Jack tells Ralph that Ralph is too scared. He goes up the mountain after dark to prove Jack wrong. This act reveals that Ralph needs to prove himself to the others and show them he is as brave and strong as Jack. However, going against his judgement just makes Jack more powerful. If Ralph had waited until daylight like he wanted, he would not have mistaken the pilot for the beast.
The pig-track was a dark tunnel,
for the sun was sliding quickly toward the edge of the world,
and in the forest,
shadows were never far to seek.
The track was broad and beaten,
and they ran along at a swift trot.
Then the roof of leaves broke up,
and they halted.
Breathing quickly.
Looking at the few stars that pricked round the head of the mountain.

The creature
Tusks gleaming

So close
Throws the foolish wooden stick
Hits the snout

“I hit him, the spear stuck in-“
“I hit him and the spear stuck in a bit”
“I wounded him”
“I walloped him properly”

“I hit him…”
~only watch 0:45-2:22
This title has symbolic significance. As the day goes on, a tree's shadow grows until it eventually disappears into darkness. The shadow represents evilness and savagery. As time on the island progresses, so does the boys' capacity for evil and savagery.
At the beginning of the chapter, Ralph is looking out over the ocean. How does he feel? What could this mean?
