Transcript of Lord of the Flies

Ralph 1. Devoted: Ralph shows that he is devoted to civilization, and getting rescued. An example of this is shown on pg 187 with the flame. When Piggy's specs are taken by Jack and two of the other hunters, Ralph and Piggy lose a lot of hope. "They've got our fire." Ralph says, "They stole it!" (Golding, 187). Ralph shows that the flame is one of the top priorities, showing his devotion to the flame and getting rescued. He relates to the character Jack by showing that he is devoted to helping people, and trying to save peoples lives like the Marshall, etc. 2. Inconsistent: Ralph acts friendly to Piggy when Jack isn't around, but when Jack's around isn't nice to him. For example, when Piggy, Samneric and Ralph show up at Jack's area of the island to eat some meat, the whole tribe goes silent. But, Piggy was bumped into after some of the boys who were cooking at the fire hauled off a great chunk of meat, when Piggy happened to be sunburnt. "Piggy once more was the centre of social derision so that everyone felt cheerful and normal." (Golding, 165). He resembles Shannon in this case. This is shown when Shannon uses Charlie to catch a fish for her. When he succeeds, he shows Shannon only to find that she takes the fish, and goes immediatly to show Boone, leaving Charlie. 5. Indecisive: Is unable to make proper decisions when Piggy dies, he has some temptations to join Jack's tribe -temptations mild, but strongest feeling when Ralph got a sense of exhilaration from hitting pig when hunting-, but still remembers about the flame, and how it is the main importance to getting off of the island (Golding, 201 and 187). Ralph tends to resemble Hurley in this situation, as Hurley is always relying on someone else to get the answers from to his questions, or to give him help in any way. 4. Rational: Ralph shows that he is rational because he thinks through things before he acts. He shows this when he turns away from savagery, and not joining Jack and his hunters (Golding, 166 and 167). Relates to Kate when she refuses to go with Jack to the caves, and stays on the beach. Also relates to Claire, when Charlie was trying to convince her to move to the caves, but refuses. 3. Leader: Shows this almost immediately. "But there was a stillness about Ralph as he sat that marked him out: there was his size, and attractive appearance; and most obscurely; yet most powerfully, there was the conch. The being that had blown that, had sat waiting for them on the platform with the delicate thing balanced on his knees, was set apart." (Golding, 119). This description tells about how Ralph became chief, even though the obvious choice would have been Jack. Ralph relates to Jack. Similarities are that both made an introductory about themselves to the other people on the island. For example, Ralph, blowing the conch in the beginning, and Jack stepping into immediate action in helping save people when the plane first crashed. Simon 1. Independent: Simon tends to keep to himself. On pg 152 he is in the woods exploring, where he encounters the Lord of the Flies. Simon relates to the character Sayid, as he shows that he is also independent. Working on projects like the transmitter receiver or exploring the island by himself just as Simon did. 2. Unsure: Simon is unsure of himself in the book. He shows this by the meeting on pg 94 and 95. He goes to speak, but is not confident to speak loud enough over the loud crowd of boys. He relates to Hurley, because Hurley also shows a sense of shyness and lack of confidence throughout the show. 3. Caring: Simon shows that he is caring. He does this by giving words of encouragement to Ralph when he needs them. For example, when the boys are visiting the one part of the island that Jack had not explored yet, in search of the beast's layer, Ralph realizes that there is no hope of rescue there. "...but here, faced by the brute obtuseness of the ocean, the miles of division, one was clamped down, one was helpless, one was condemned, one was-" (Golding, 121) Ralph's thought was interrupted by Simon telling Ralph that he was clamping a rock, where Simon then said that Ralph will make it off the island, and he'll get back to where he came from. Showing evidence that Simon is caring especially towards Ralph. This is a relation to Boone, as he also tries his best to help in any way he can. Such as with John with the airplane, when he couldn't explore it because of his legs. 4. Curious: Simon shows that he is a curious person because he wants to know if there really is a beast on the island, and goes exploring to find out for himself where he there encounters the Lord of the Flies (Golding, 152). Simon relates to John and Jack. The relation with John is that when Boone and himself discover the hatch, John is really curious to find out what is inside of it. Simon is similar to Jack because when Jack sees his father for the second time on the island, he runs after him immediately, only to find that he had disappeared. 5. Open-minded: At one of the meetings discussing about if the beast is real or not, Simon suggests that beast is in themselves when in truth is right, but boys find it as an odd statement and ignore it (Golding, 95 and 96). Simon relates to John. On the show in one of the episodes, John tells Jack that he is a man of faith, while Jack is a man of science. John believes that they were meant to land on the island, making him a very open-minded person just like Simon. Work Cited Lost: Season 1. Dir. J. J. Abrams. Perf. Matthew Fox & Evangeline Lilly .
