Civilization Vs Savagery
•Jack = Savagery
•Ralph = Civilization


"He noticed Ralph's scarred nakedness, and the sombre silence of all four of them. He sought, charitable in his happiness, to include them in the thing that had happened. His mind was crowded with memories; memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they close in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink." (p75)
- "I've been thinking," he said, "about a clock. We could make a sundial. We could put a stick in the sand, and then" (Piggy, p69)
Man Vs Nature
•Destruction of mankind to the natural world
- "Roger led the way straight through the castles, kicking them over, burying the flowers, scattering the chosen stones. Maurice followed, laughing, and adding to the destruction." (p63-64)
- "This was fascinating to Henry. He poked about with a bit of stick, that itself was wave-worn and whitened and vagrant, and tried to control the motions of the scavengers. He made little runnels that the tide filed and tried to crowd them with creatures. He became absorbed beyond mere happiness as he felt himself exercising control over living things. he talked to them, urging them, ordering them. Driven back by the tide, his footprints became bays in which they were trapped and gave him the illusion of mastery." (p65)
Gaining Power
•Ralph vs Jack
"Ralph said no more, did nothing, stood looking down at the ashes round his feet. Jack was loud and active. He gave orders, sang, whistled, threw remarks at the silent Ralph - remarks that did not need an answer, and therefore could not invite a snub; and still Ralph was silent. No one, not even Jack, would ask him to move and in a place not really as convenient." (p78)

Pig hunts
•Man's capacity for destruction & violence

•blood lust, a hysteria
"Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood" (Hunters, p73)
" The twins stood with the pig swinging between them, dropping black gouts on the rock. They seemed to share one wide, ecstatic grin." (p74)
"We'll go hunting every day - " (Jack, p75)
•Adapting to a new world
"Some of the boys wore black caps but otherwise they were almost naked. They lifted sticks in the air together, whenever they came to an easy patch. They were chanting, something to do with the bundle that the errant twins carried so carefully." (p73)
"Piggy wore the remainders of a pair of shorts, his fat body was golden brown ... " (p68)
"He noticed Ralph's scarred nakedness, and the sombre silence of all four of them." (p75)
Spectacles/Piggy's Glasses
•Advancement, innovation, and discovery.

•Broken glasses = loss of civilization

•Glasses = Vision = Sight = Knowledge
Piggy with glasses = he can see = he is smart.
Piggy without glasses = he can't see = he is weak.
"Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy's head. Piggy's glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks. Piggy cried out in terror" (p77)
"One side's broken"
Piggy grabbed and put on the glasses. He looked malevolently at Jack." (p77)
"Then, to his surprise, Ralph went to Piggy and took the glasses from him...
Piggy stood behind him, islanded in a sea of meaningless colour, while Ralph knelt and focused the glossy spot. Instantly the fire was alight Piggy held out his hands and grabbed the glasses back" (p79)
The Conch
•Rules, politics, and speech.
"With the conch. I'm calling a meeting even if we have to go on into the dark. Down on the platform. When I blow it, Now." (Ralph, p81)
