In the beginning of Chapter Three, Jack is in the forest hunting by himself.
Jack is obsessed with the hunt. He is following the trails, smelling the air, and listening to the forest. Jack is going mad with the prospect of meat. After failing at hunting, he goes to the beach for water and sees Ralph and Simon buliding huts. Ralph is frustrated with buliding the shelters, because they aren't stable and no one is helping. Ralph starts to get mad at Jack because his hunters didn't bring back any meat and they aren't helping with anything else around camp, including the shelters. Jack is defensive and begins to talk about his need to catch a pig and how close he is. The difference in their opinions on the shelters and the hunting is the first sign of conflict between Ralph and Jack. The chapter ends with Simon walking off into the forest. Simon then goes to his "secret spot", this is the first time he goes there. The little ones follow him into the forest and he gives them ripe fruit. This is the first time he is looked at as a God-like figure. He thinks it is the most beautiful and peaceful place on the island. Changes: The boys are now scared to be in the forest alone.
They look over their shoulders and feel like the "beast" is
following them. Ralph and Jack now have different priorites for the first time.
Jack puts hunting above everything, while Ralph is concerned about
being rescued. Jack forgets what it means to be rescued. The boys lose their innocence and their "child-like" behaviors. In this chapter, Ralph and Jack's disagreements become noticable, starting with the importance of hunting vs. the shelters. This is the first time that it is noticeable that Simon is meant to portray a God-like figure. He is being followed by the children and he is giving them gifts, and they respect him and are almost in awe of him. In this chapter, Jack starts to become more focused on becoming successful on the island instead of getting off of it, and this theme continues throughout the book. In the previous chapter, snacks and beasts were talked about. Jack was explaining how he always feels like something is following him in the forest, so the older boys are scared also. conch symbolizes civilized authority. beast symbolizes fear and the unknown. signal fire symbolizes hope. chanting and dancing of the boys symbolizes the loss of reason. killing of the pigs symbolize evil and destruction. Jack's weapons symbolize control. Piggy's glasses symbolize knowledge. Foreshadowing: At the beginning of Chapter Three, Jack is hunting alone while all the other hunters have gone back to camp. He is starting to become consumed and mad with hunting. This chapter sets the stage for his obsession throughout the rest of the book. Ralph and Jack begin to argue on the beach about the importance of hunting vs. the importance of the fire and shelters. They get so frustrated with one another that they can barley look at each other. This chapter points out their differences which destroys their friendship later. Personification: All of the boys call the leaves, ivy, and brush on the ground in the forest "creepers" making it seem scary and life-like. Simile: "Darkness poured out, submergig the ways between the trees till they were dim and strange as the bottom of the sea." p.57 "The air here was dark too, and the creepers dropped their ropes like the rigging of foundered ships." p.56 "His feet left prints in the soft soil and the creepers shivered throughout their lengths when he bumped them." p.56 Themes: A major theme throughout this novel is the choice of being civilized or the decision to behave like savages. From the very first chapter, the boys talk about how they are from England. They all agree that they should be civilized and have rules. In chapter three, Ralph is being responsible by building the shelters. On the other hand, Jack spends all day hunting with no results or bennefit for the boys. Jack and the other boys stray from those rules and become savages. In the later chapters, they paint their faces and walk around naked. Ralph, symbolizes following the rules and being civilized, while Jack symbolizes breaking the rules and savagery. 1. What is Ralph's and Jack's conflict on the beach over?
