Transcript of Woolbeast discusses: Analyzing the Lord of the Flies - Conflict and Music

Major Conflicts
in The Lord of the Flies Ralph vs
Jack Boys vs Beastie Boys vs
Nature Boys vs
Piggy Jack vs
Society Jack destroys the makeshift civilization the boys worked so hard to create the Beastie symbolizes the Devil the boys move from being scared to wanting to hang its head on a pole the boys go hunting many times to try to keep themselves alive otherwise, nature is indifferent, and they must survive the at times harsh conditions on the island Piggy represents the weak who are often victimized Piggy is tortured by the boys because his physical appearance sets him apart from them: he is fat, and needs thick glasses to see the barbaric quality that arises in Jack throughout the book is really a rebellion against society example: Jack's willingness to completely discard his civilized appearance Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the Blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
(woo woo, woo woo)

I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
(woo woo, woo woo)

Popular Music that Connects to LOTF When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
oh joyfully, oh playfully watching me.
But then they sent me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, oh responsible, practical.
And then they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am
I said now watch what you say they'll be calling you a radical,
a liberal, oh fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!
Oh Take it take it yeah!

But at night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am,
Who I am x 3 !!!

Who knows who's so logical. Make his fight on the hill in the early day
Constant chill deep inside
Shouting gun, on they run through the endless gray
On they fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?
For a hill, men would kill. Why? They do not know
Stiffend wounds test their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the pain that they surely know

For whom the bell tolls
Time marches on
For whom the bell tolls

Take a look to the sky just before you die
It's the last time you will
Blackened roar, massive roar, fills the crumbling sky
Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry
Stranger now are his eyes to this mystery
He hears the silence so loud
Crack of dawn, all is gone except the will to be
Now they see what will be, blinded eyes to see

For whom the bell tolls
Time marches on
For whom the bell tolls The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there

For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
THEN I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share

And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother Jack grows tired of Ralph being in charge Jack's sense of anarchy must have existed inside him before coming to the island, but his experiences served to bring it out the boys' torture can also be considered a lack of understanding, because the boys have never met anyone with problems like his - e.g. asthma vs "ass-mar" Jack grows tired of taking orders from Ralph and taking part in the democratic system they have Jack lets the barbarism inside of him transform him into a savage-like creature and goes on a rampage the Beastie is a reflection of all of the evil inside the boys later, Jack's warrior identity brutally murders the sow and hangs her head on a pole at first, Jack is afraid to kill the sow as the boys grow further and further away from civilization, their desire to kill the Beastie grows Ralph represents order and composure in society
