"We was on the outside. We never done nothing, we never seen nothing."
Displays the panic in his voice
Multiple personal pronouns
suggest a sense of community
reminds us of Piggy's
lack of education and status
Suggests being apart from
something - by choice or isolation
How do I use this in a paragraph?
Piggy is an outsider 'not only by accent' in the novel and Golding present him in this way to show that many types of people are susceptible to 'the darkness in man's heart.'
When the boys kill Simon at the feast, Golding draws the reader's attention to the fact that Piggy, like Ralph, is involved in the murder. However, afterwards when Ralph's natural courage wants to confront their crimes by admitting that 'that was Simon. That was murder' Piggy is outraged. He instead, unlike the other boys, wants to hide from reality by stating 'we was on the outside.' The use of the the multiple personal pronoun suggests that Piggy wants to be part of the community of boys but this is changed by his use of 'outside' straight afterwards to suggest an actual detachment from the group. The repetition of 'never' and 'nothing' in the following sentence display his panic at this position and the unlikelihood that there can be a change.
Therefore Golding's choice of language and his depiction of Piggy's response to the death of Simon show the reader that whilst he is different to the others he is still vulnerable to the savagery in mankind.
FOCUS on GOLDING
Role in the novel
Why are they there?
How do they aid Golding's
overall message within the novel?
Often leading to a
discussion of the reader's response
How they change over the
course of the novel (*if they do)
Key moments - when
and how do they influence
the primary plot
(*Prioritise even within this though)
Symbols associated with them
and what that suggests about
How they use language
and what this says about them
They are not real
They are ways in which
Golding can provoke emotions
from you and show you
things that he thinks are
You can not write everything!
You have to prioritise!
