Contextual Literature
Symbols in
Lord of the Flies
Piggy's glasses
The Conch Shell
The Beast
"Deepened" Understanding
Throughout the book, the children's sense of civilization slowly slips away and the kids that are killed on the island shows an idea of survival of the fittest;Piggy was not physically fit and Simon didn't have the same mindset as the other children.
When Simon is killed,the children try to act as if nothing happened like everything was fine, and Jack even uses this to his advantage to gain more followers.
Piggy's death seizes all ties to the idea of civilization, because Roger ruthlessly kills Piggy without reason.
The conch is also destroyed,which holds an enormous part in Piggy and Ralph's philosophy of being ruly.

Simile in
Lord of the Flies
"The flames, as though they were a kind of wild life, crept as a jaguar (pg.44)."
The two boys bullet headed like tow, flung themselves down and lay grinning and panting at Ralph like dogs (pg. 19)."
"Ralph launched himself like a cat, stabbed, snarling, with the spar and the savage doubled up (pg. 195)."
Personification in
Lord of the Flies
"For a moment or two the forest and all the other dimly appreciated places echoed with the parody of laughter (pg. 143)."
"All around the place of assembly the grey trunks rose, straight or leaning, and supported the low roof of leaves (pg.77)."
"Their footprints and the occasional breeze were stirring up small devils of dust (pg. 120)."
Lord of The Flies
was too descriptive in some of the chapters such as when the author uses two pages to describe the tracks that a pig had left!
Imagery in
Lord of the Flies
"All around him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat (pg. 7)."
"The sand was thick over his black shoes and the heat hit him (pg.10) ."
I would recommend this book only to the readers who are open minded and critical thinkers.
Also have a good understanding of symbolism and deep meanings before you read this book
If you are not a person with enough patience and easily doze off, do not read this book!
Loss of Innocence

Innocence is the state of being uncorrupt, morally good and free from sin or evil.
The kids on the island lose their innocence at the point where they transform from civilized and behaved kids who just wanted to be rescued from the island they were stranded on, to Savages (hunters with painted bodies that went around killing pigs and each other.)
Good vs. Evil/ Order vs. Chaos
Good (to be civilized, moral, peaceful, and obedient of rules) and Evil (to be a savage and violent to become powerful) are opposite traits that exist in the kids on the island.
Person vs Person
1) If you were in the same situation, what would you have done?

2) Do you think you would have been a good leader in this situation? Why?

3) How many of you would like to be on an island alone without any adults?

4)Would you be civilized and have rules or just go hunting?

5)Would you go to Jack's extent of killing and murdering for power?

6)Would you want to be rescued?
Describing Piggy as "indignant" multiple times to give readers a sense of his personality
The irony of having Simon dying before he gets to tell the kids the truth about the beast;the beast is in everyone's imagination.
The foreshadowing of Simon's death as the Lord of the Flies speaks to him in his hallucination and says he is going to toy with him

Jack vs. Ralph
Ralph is the Chief and is trying to get them rescued, while Jack is trying to become Chief as well but through violence.
Person vs. Society
Piggy as an outcast vs. Other Boys
Throughout the book, Piggy struggles to withstand all harassments and abuses he experiences.
Person vs. Self
The boys throughout the book, except Simon, deal with evil that is within them that ultimately poisons their innocence and civilized impulses.
Being Rescued
As the story unfolds, you see Ralph trying to keep a fire to leave smoke so ships passing by the island and can see it and possibly rescue the kids.
Piggy's glasses are the only source that can create the fire. However, Jack always lets the fire die out and also uses it for feasts only.
Power is the ability for someone to have authority or influence.
Two different types of power are demonstrated in the book through the two main characters.
Jack had been a rebel since the beginning of the book,thinking he was easily going to boss everybody up,and is upset when thinks never go his way,Ralph assigns him a job as the leader of the choir group,which he then uses as hunters for the kids.
Throughout the book,many of the kids begin to lose faith in Ralph and they go to Jack's group because they do not want to be singled out and hunted like Ralph and food rules everything !
