Transcript of LOTF and Lost

Lord of the Flies and Lost Comparison Ralph HELLLLOOOO Responsible Leader Remain Calm Communication Orderly Simon Kind/Helpful Brave Introvert Ralph shows responsibility by giving everyone jobs to do. "We've got to have special people looking after the fire... We ought to have some rules,"(Golding 39). He also made a hunters group, who got food, and people to make the shelters. Ralph was marked the leader of the boys at the start of the book, even though he wasn't very intelligent or was an obvious leader, "But there was a stillness of ralph as he sat that marked him out; there was his size, and attractive appearance; and most obscurely, yet most powerfully, there was the conch," (Golding 21). Ralph is very calm at the start of the book. When others are worried about not getting rescued of the beast, Ralph always reassured them. "I said before we'll be rescued sometime. We've just got to wait, thats all,"(Golding 40). always stay thinking about getting rescued and thinks the fire is the most important thing. The first thing Ralph does is call an assembly, he is always the main speaker as he is the leader. "I'll give the conch to the next person to speak. He can hold it when he speaks," (Golding 31). Ralph gives clear orders while speaking to a group of people. Ralph wants to have a very organized type of society on the island. "We can't have everybody talking at once. We'll have to have 'hands up' like at school," (Golding 31). He tries to introduce rules for everyone, and wants everyone to cooperate with him and do what they are told.
There is a lot of evidence in the book to show Simon's kindness. "All day i've been working with Simon. No one else. They're off bathing, or eating, or playing,"(Golding 46). Simon was helping Ralph build shelters when everyone else just went off and did other things. "Simon. He helps,"(50). Ralph plainly states that Simon is a helper. "Simon found for them the fruit they could not reach, pulled off the choicest from up in the foliage, passed them back down to the endless, outstretched hands"(51). There he was helping the littluns get the fruit that they were not tall enough to reach which shows being kind and helpful Simon shows he is brave when, after seeing the beast, offers to go through the forest by himself to tell piggy they would be back after dark. "I'll go if you like. I don't mind, honestly."(Golding 106). During an assembly, when they can't decide what to do, Simon suggests climbing the mountain. "I think we ought to climb the mountain," (117) which they previously saw. Simon likes to go off by himself into the forest. At the end of chapter 3 Simon is off exploring by himself. "Other people could stand up and speak to an assembly, apparently, without that dreadful feeling of the pressure of personality; could say what they would as though they were speaking to only one person," (Golding 93). To me, that sounds as if Simon does not like speaking in front of people, especially when he has to at assemblys. Intelligent Simon is the only one who can talk to the Lord of the Flies. He is the only one to find out the truth about the beast. "The beast was harmless and horrible; and the news must reach the others as soon as possible," (Golding 134). Lord of the Flies Lost The person who most relates to Ralph in many ways is Jack. He takes the role of leader in the beginning. He takes on the responsibility of caring for everyones health, and trying to find a way off the island. Jack also trys to remain calm while trying to get off the island. He also shows good communication with others by telling them what to do, which is also showing him to be orderly. Jack John Locke Jock Locke seems to stay by himself for a lot of the time, just like Simon does. He also seems to be very intelligent, and knows a lot of things, just like Simon. Sawyer Sawyer seems very brave, and is always wanting to go into the jungle when the group is looking for something. Hurley Hurley is very kind and helpful at the beginning. He helps Claire, and trys to help Jack with a patient. Golding, William. Lord of the Flies. new York: Perigee Books, 1954. Works Cited
