LOTF and Lost Concept Map Jack -Savage Jack is savage by hunting the islands pigs with glee and proclaiming his position as chief and supreme ruler of the island. Proof of this is "At last the immediacy of the kill subsided. The boys drew, and Jack stood up, holding out his hands. "Look." He giggled and flicked them while the boys laughed at his reeking palms" (Golding 123). This behavior shows how he has changed from civilized to savage during the book. -Creates Unrest Jack creats unrest by being combative with ralph and objecting to his descisions and priorities. He is cruel to the Littuns and creats conflicts within the group. Proof of this is "[...]what makes things break up like this?" "I dunno Ralph, I expect its him." "Jack?" "Jack."(Golding 127). -Negligent Jack is nigligent because of his attitude towards the signal fire. He doesn't care if they keep it going or not and doesn't take responsibility for it. Proof of this is "Ralph spoke. "You let the fire go out." Jack checked, vaugly irritated by this irrelevance but too happy to let it worry him."(Golding 63). -Destructive Jack is destructive from the moment he meets the first pig. At first he is unsure and hesitates to kill it but hardens his resolve for the next encounter. He also enjoys breaking Piggy's glasses. Proof of this trait is "[...] Jack smacked Piggy's head. Piggy's glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks."(Golding 65). -Manipulating Jack is manipulative though his use of the choir as well as the presumed existance of the beast. By assuming control of the choir he gains power and proclaimes his importance. He also uses the boys belief of the beast to instill fear and use that fear to influence peoples thoughts. An example of this is "I gave you food," said Jack, "and my hunters will protect you from the beast. Who will join my tribe?"(Golding 137). In this speech Jack is manipulating the existance of the beast to force boys into his tribe. Simon -Compliant Simon is a compliant character and does his best to help Ralph in his efforts to build shelters and doesn't complain. An example of this compliance is "Simon pushed his way to Ralphs elbow. "I'll go if you like. I don't mind, honestly."(Golding 106) -Considerate There are many examples of Simons consideration towards others in the book. This consideration is shown towards piggy on Pg 65 when he retrieves them for him and to the littuns on Pg 51 when he gathers fruit from branches they cannot reach. -Perceptive Simon is perceptive due to his knowlage of the existance of the lord of the flies. He, unlike the other boys realizes that it is a creation of thiers and not an actual being.
Proof of this is "Simon looked now from Ralph to Jack, as he looked from Ralph to the horizon, and what he saw seemed to make him afraid."(Golding 62). Simon is seeing what the boys are becoming long before Ralph or Piggy -Solitary Simon is a solitary character and this is proved from the very begining of the book. Simon demonstrates his solidarity when he goes to his secret place, sneaks off at night and hates speaking to the group. Proof of this is "What I mean is...maybe it's only us." "Nuts!" that was from Piggy, shocked out of decorum. Simon went on. "We could sort of...." This part of the book shows Simons reluctance to speak in ront of the group and be the center of attention. -Curious Simon is one of the more curious boys in LOTF.
Several acts show this including his exploration of the island and his interest in the beast even though even Ralph appears to be afraid of it. Also Simon sneaks away at night to explore. Proof of this trait is on Pg 121 when Simon returns to his secret place in the clearing before the Lord Of The Flies is "mounted". In this Prezi I will prove five different character traits of both Jack and Simon.
After the traits are listed I will procede to compare these traits to various personalities from the television show LOST. Comparisons to LOST Some comparisns I can make to LOST using these traits are: Jack and Locke are both savage in the way that they both enjoy killing wild animals and would rather stay on their respective islands. Sawyer and Jack both try to manipulate people to thier advantage. Soyer manipulating Kate, and Jack manipulating the smaller boys. Both Hurley and Simon do their best to help weaker people in thier groups like Claire and the Littuns respectively. Jack and Sawyer create unrest in thier groups by being combative and violent. They also have an unfavorable personality. Simon and Locke are similar in the way that they are both very solitary and like to be alone. Due to this trait, many people think that they are strange. Simon and Sayid are both mysterious. Each of them also has secrative intentions. Sayid with his radios and Simon with his beast theory. Golding, William. Lord Of The Flies.
