Lord of the Flies - Chapter 1
Transcript of Lord of the Flies - Chapter 1
dressed in a black cloak
which covered his body
from his throat to his
ankles and black cap with a gold badge (19) He is tall, thin, and bony with red hair, blue eyes, and a freckled face. Jack is the leader of the choir group, and is described as the most obvious choice for a leader on page 22 despite his loss in the election. Others: Lilltluns - The small boys
Sam & Eric (Samneric)- The twins
Roger, Maurice, and Simon - Some of the choir boys who follow Jack. Roger is the next biggest in size next to Jack. Maurice is described as quiet. Simon is the choir boy who fainted. Important Objects & Events from Chapter 1 The Conch Piggy finds the conch and convinces Ralph to use it as a horn type device to call for other survivors (15-17). What do you think the shell symbolizes in chapter 1? "Him with the shell... Let him be chief with the
trumpet-thing. (22)" The trio's encounter
with the piglet On the way back from the adventure up the mountain, Ralph, Simon, and Jack come across a piglet trapped in the "creepers" (31). Though this pig could mean food for the group, Jack hesitates to lower his knife and make the kill. The pig escapes and the boys miss out on the chance for a good meal. By yourself or with someone beside you, discuss/think about what Golding may be suggesting here about human nature. Use evidence from the text. "There came a pause, a hiatus ... only long enough
for them to understand what an enormity
the down stroke would be" (31).
"They knew very well why [Jack] hadn't: because
of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood" (31). Activity: Who would you choose? Although Ralph is ultimately elected leader, he is not necessarily the best suited for the job.
"None of the boys could have found good reason for this; what intelligence had been shown
was traceable to Piggy while the most obvious leader was Jack" (22).
In groups of 5, decide amongst yourselves who you think would be best suited as leader. You can choose from any character who was introduced in Chapter 1, however you must find textual evidence from the chapter to support your choice. You can use quotes or events from the chapter, but be sure to note the page number next to your evidence. Have at least 5 pieces of supporting evidence - one per group member.
Have one person from the group record your findings on the sheet of paper provided. Another member should be prepared to share with the class what the group came up with.
