Transcript of Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies William Golding Setting This story begins with all the characters on a plane, but then the plane crashes and the children are left alone. After the plane crash the boys end up on a desserted island. The boys are left alone with out any adults. Introduction to rising action The boys built a fire for smoke signals for the ships and planes.
Ralph, Simon, and Piggy built this fire from fragile leaves and Piggys glasses. This was important because they needed to signal boats and planes to the island. Another important part of this book was when Simon found the dead man with the parachute. This was important because that meant that the beastie that they were talking about was not real. The boys that were stuck on the island had an ellection for the
leader of the pack. Ralph won the majority. Jack was very angry
at Ralph, so Jack made his own troop. Climax The climax of this book was when Simon goes and hunts for the beast and finds the dead body. This part is in the introduction to rising action too. When Simon goes to tell the troops about the beast being the dead body. THe troops attack him viscously. Simon dies from the boys stabbing him with their spears. Piggy and Ralph decided that they did not hurt Simon. Then Piggy was thrown over a 40ft cliff and died. Ralph was stabbed in the ribs by Jack. Falling Action and Resolution After Jack stabbed Ralph, Ralph got away and hid behind, a couple of bushes and trees, so that he could see Jack but Jack could not see him. This was also apart of the climax of the story. Response My responce to this book that it was
very violent, but that gives more action,
and kept me reading. This book was also
very interseting. This was interesting
because this book had alot of detail
incorporated. The details that were in this
book were when they killed the pig, they gave
details about what it looked like, and how it
squealed. Character Trace Major Characters Description Attitdude toward major conflict Relationships with other characters Other interesting information
