Lord of the Flies Chapter 11
Milgram Experiment
Would you blindly follow orders from a higher authority?
The Original Milgram Experiment
Sam & Eric

201+4 = 502 ----- find/prove how you get 502 for this question
The Conch
"The booing rose and died again as Piggy lifted the white, magic shell" (200)
Piggy's Glasses
used to make fire
after the glasses are stolen they signify civilization out of control
"Jack swung his fist at Ralph and caught him on the ear. Ralph hit Jack in the stomach and made him grunt. Then they were facing each other again, panting and furious, but unnverved by each other's ferocity." (pg. 199)
Painted Faces
The Ocean
- Wash away guilt , regret, sins,and crimes

- Embodiment of a Beast

Stylistic Devices & Archetypes
People are inherently evil
‘ Squealing-’
‘It broke away-‘
‘Before I could kill it-but-next time’ – (Golding31)

“‘ I cut the pig’s throat,’ said Jack proudly , and yet he twitched as he said it”- (Golding73)

Earlier on, Jack couldn't kill a pig , however as the novel progresses, he ends up killing an innocent pig.

Like Jack , Roger couldn't kill a living being , however in this chapter Roger ends up murdering Piggy
Discusion question here:
1. What influences the boys to follow jack? Ralph? What factors influence you to obey?
2. how does roger view jack?
3. how is piggy's death different from the others?
4. If you were Ralph, how would you react after Piggy's death?
5. If you were forced into something and you knew it was wrong, would you still obey that person?
6. Do you believe the boys have a chance of being rescued even though
most of them are savage now?
7. Do you think Sam and Eric were loyal to Ralph throughout the novel?

"Roger edged past the chief, only just avoiding pushing him with his shoulder. The yelling ceased, and Samneric lay looking up in quiet terror. Roger advanced upon them as one wielding a nameless authority "(202)
Character development
Chapter 4: "the taboo of the old life..Roger's arm was conditioned by a civilization" (65)

Chapter 8: "one piglet... rushed into the sea trailing Roger's spear behind it" (147)

"Roger ran round the heap, prodding with his spear whenever pigflesh
appeared...with his whole weight" (149)

Chapter 11: "Roger took up small stone and flung it between the twins aming to miss...and
Sam only just kept his footing. Some source of power began to pulse in Roger's body" (194)

"a curious air-noise close by Ralph's head...there it was again;a faint 'Zup!'
Someone was throwing stones: Roger was dropping them...Ralph was a shock of hair and Piggy as a bag of fat." (199)

"with a sense of delirious abandonment, leaned all his weight on the lever." (200)

"one fell from high where Roger was" (201)

Primates juste rocks, boys regressing they use rocks as a weapon and they like in a cave
represents power + strength
Chapter 2: "the great rock...smashed a deep hole in the canopy of the forest... like a bomb"(25)
"with a high ledge of pink granite at the further end (7)
Used to conceal old civilized self
more live natives who painted their faces
a sense of identity for hunters
"the anonymous devil's face" (201)
"they understood only too well the liberation into savagery that the concealing paint brought" (191)
Factors that influence obedience
legitimacy of figure
peer support
personal responsibility
status of figure
Ralph and a few others try to light the fire
Ralph blows the conch and the boys decide on travelling to Castle Rock and get Piggy's glasses back
Jack with his hunters comes from the forest with a dead pig
Ralph tells Jack to return Piggy's glasses
Jack tells his hunters to tie Sam & Eric up and torture them until they agree to join Jack's group
Ralph and Jack fight
Piggy tries to speak over the fight but Roger throws a massive rock down the mountain
The massive rock hits Piggy and the conch breaks
"You got to join the tribe."
"The chief snatched one of the few spears that were left and poked Sam in the ribs."
"What d'you mean by it eh? What d'you mean by coming with spears? What d'you mean by not joining my tribe?" (202)
Character Development
Chapter 2:
"The twins, Sam 'n' Eric, were the first to get a likely log" (38)

Chapter 10:
"I'm too tired. And what's the good?
Eric! cried Ralph in a shocked voice. Don't talk like that!
Sam knelt by Eric.
Well - what is the good?" (180)
"Sam nodded vigorously.
It was different when the fire was-
up there.
Ralph stood up, feeling curiously defenceless with the darkness pressing in." (181)

Chapter 11:
"He'll be painted, said Sam timidly. "You know how he'll be-" (190)
"Samneric protested out of the heart of civilization" (198)
- Fought with Ralph
- Jack and his followers torture sam n eric until they join Jack’s clique

"Who's a thief?"- Jack
"you are " - Ralph
(Golding 196)
Character Development
"his (Jack) sinewy body held up a mask that drew their eyes and appalled them. He began to dance and his laughter became a bloodthirsty snarling. He capered toward Bill, and the mask was a thing on its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness." (66)
“The others nodded. They understood only too well the liberation into savagery that the concealing paint brought.
Well we won't be painted, said Ralph because we aren't savages." (191)
Character development
Changes drastically in terms of leadership
Left on his own in this chapter
Chapter 5
Allows everyone to share their ideas
Most look up to Ralph as a leader
Jack has no problems with Ralph
No conflict except for the beast
Chapter 11
Jack is in charge and has everyone on his team
Ralph is being hunted down
Chapter 1
“Choir! Stand Still!” - ( Golding16)
' I ought to be chief,' said Jack with simple arrogance.
Chapter 2
‘ Squealing-’
‘It broke away-‘
‘Before I could kill it-but-next time’ – (Golding31)
Chapter 4
“‘ I cut the pig’s throat,’ said Jack proudly , and yet he twitched as he said it”- (Golding73)
Chapter 8
“‘Hands up,’ said Jack strongly, ‘whoever wants Ralph not to be chief?’”- (Golding 139)
Chapter 9
“‘Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’”-(Golding168)

" He (Ralph) faced the place of assembly and put the conch to his lips. The others were waiting for this and came straight away." Page 84
"'I'm calling an assembly.' Silence. Roger took up a small stone and flung it between the twins, aiming to miss. Some source of power began to pulse in Roger's body. Ralph spoke again, loudly." Page 194/195
Piggy represents the civilization that the boys grew up in
This is shown when the novel describes Piggy as not having long hair like the others and basically appearing more like someone from the civilization they grew up with
Piggy also represents the scientific/ logical side of civilization because he's the only one that thinks in terms of the society norms he grew up with and basically he's more wise than the other boys
Piggy doesn't impact the boys directly because they ignore him , however Ralph listens to Piggy and applies Piggy's ideas to their situation
Castle Rock- Significance
Where Piggy goes to get his glasses back
Jack and Ralph have their last and most important brawl
The third death occurs
Change in value as story progresses
"In colour the shell was deep cream, touched here and there with fading pink. between the point, worn away into a little hole, and the pink lips of the mouth, lay eighteen inches of shell with a slight spiral twist and covered with a delicate, embossed pattern." (11)
Represents democracy, civilization and dominance of speech
All evidently destroyed in this chapter
"I (Jack) tried to get over that hill to see if there was water all round. But your shell called us" (20)
"Piggy fell forty feet and landed on his back across he square red rock in the sea. His head opened and stuff came out and turned red. Pigy's arms and legs twitched a bit...Then the sea breathed again in a long, slow sigh, the water boiled white and pink over the rock; and when it went, sucking back again, the body of Piggy was gone."- (Golding 201).
"The conch exploded into a thousand

fragments and ceased to exist" (200)
The downfall of the boys on the island is very similar to the fall of the Western Roman Empire
The loss of authority with Ralph is very similar to the inability women have, to be heard in third world countries
The Symbol & Impact of Piggy

"I (Jack) tried to get over that hill to see if there was water all round. But your shell called us" (20)
" Viciously, with full intention, he hurled his spear at Ralph. The point tore the skin and flesh over Ralph's ribs." (201)
"The beach was swept clean like a blade that has been scoured" (192)

"Wasn't he waxy?" (105)
"-if he gets waxy we've had it-" (190)

"You're a beast and a swine and a bloody, bloody theift" (199)
"The painted group moved round Samneric nervously and unhandily." (198)
"What you goin' to do, Ralph? This is jus' talk without deciding. I want my glasses." (189)
"Not them. Didn't you hear what the pilot said? About the atom bomb? They're all dead." (9)
"This time the silence was complete" (201)
