Transcript of Lord Of The Flies: Presentation

Lord Of The Flies Predator-Prey Relation Why does no authority matter? Thesis The boys' portrayal of animal behaviors clearly demonstrates what the real... Example #1 "I was chief, and you were going to do what I said. You talk. But you can't even build huts- then you go off hunting and let out the fire-".
(pg. 70-71) Example #2 "Ralph considered this and understood. He was vexed to find how little he thought like a grownup and sighed again".
(pg. 139) Conclusion In conclusion, because there is no adult control, the boys are influenced to act on their own which then leads them to behave like animals. Point #1 Since there is no adult control, the boys have the freedom to do what they want and in the end, become animal like. Point #2 When the boys lose their human emotions, it causes them to take after animal behaviors. Example #1 "'That little' un-' gasped Piggy - 'him with the mark on his face, I don't see him. Where is he now?'
The crowd was silent as death". (pg. 46) Explanation "Silent as death"
The boys have no words to say about the death of the littlun
Emotion takes over
Piggy's inquiring question shows his care
Boys had emotion at the beginning
Not yet taking after animal behaviors Example #2 "See? See? That's what you'll get! I meant that! There isn't a tribe for you any more! The conch is gone-".
( pg. 181) Explanation Jack says "the conch is gone!"
no emotion toward Piggy's death but the conch
Taking after animal actions, with no emotions to death Conclusion Point #3 The way Jack and Ralph behaves toward each other demonstrates a predator-prey relation, as well as showing rebellion against government. Example #1 Example #2 "They had smoked him out and set the island on fire".
(pg. 190) Conclusion In conclusion, the choice of words used to describe the actions of the boys' show how they truly act like animals and commit rebellious acts. In conclusion, with the boys emotions decreasing throughout the book, it demonstrates how they are exhibiting animal behaviour. Explanation Explanation Ralph is the "government"
Jack and his tribe act as rebellious citizens who want control
Fire is a symbol of power
Sets the forest on fire, showing that he has power over Ralph
In the real world, some people do take it to the extreme Explanation They ignored the task of keeping the fire going
Animals don't live by rules
Desire for meat exceeds the desire of being rescued
Animals have the same instincts
If citizens choose to rebel, it will cause severe chaos Explanation Ralph was "vexed" about how little he thought as an adult
Without an "adult mind" Ralph knows they can't get rescued
No control
Ralph "sighed" again
Lost hope in getting rescued
They don't need to be rescued
Acting on their own
Animals depend on survival
Not enough people to keep the fire going ...world would turn into without law, order, and adult control. "A single cry quickened his heart-beat and, leaping up, he dashed away toward the ocean side and the thick jungle till he was hung up among creepers; he stayed there for a moment with his calves quivering".
(pg. 196) Diction of words sets a scary and dangerous mood
Ralph represented as deer, hunted by predator, a wolf (Jack)
Jack has his tribe with him, like a wolf pack
Gives a feel of Ralph being hunted
"Single cry" alerted Ralph

Question #2 Question #1 Question #3 Discussion Questions With the boys decreasing emotion, how does it affect their survival? Think of the way Jack and his tribe target Ralph in the forest near the end of the book. What media aspect draws parallels to this part of the book? Think about the first time when the boys turned against each other. What are some important symbols that caused them to change their behaviour? Firstly... Nothing to restrict them from their behaviour
Think that meat is most important
In reason, rescue is most important
Passion for meat causes them to hunt Secondly... They start to lose all their human feelings
The boys gain the personality of animals Lastly... Jack and his tribe try to kill Ralph
This draws parallels to a predator-prey relation
Shows rebellion against authority. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING!
