Transcript of Copy of LORD OF THE FLIES

William Golding Lord of the Flies The conch Glasses Path of destruction on the island created by the crash of an aircraft (Golding 6)

The beginning of man's destruction (pink monkey)

When given a world to live in, people will naturally resort to wrecking it

The scar is only the beginning of the destruction of the otherwise untouched island (sparknotes) The scar "Scar" "You wouldn't care to help with the shelters I suppose?" Now the antagonism was audible
(Golding 53) The huts Civilized form of shelter
Huts are the beginning of the separation between the civilized (Ralph) and the savage (Jack)
The response and respect for authority is already diminishing Symbolism ... small Jack doesn't care about the huts.

Uses "we need meat" as an excuse to hunt and kill. (Golding 52)

Huts aren't built very solidly, one of them collapse

The foundation on which the children base their civilized conduct isn't very strong "He tried to convey the compulsion to track down and kill that was swallowing him up. 'I went on. I thought, by myself' The madness came into his eyes again. 'I thought I might kill' " (Golding 52) The Pig Symbol of the desire to do evil in men's hearts.
The main idea of Jack's desire to hunt is to kill
Represents the first sin by the children(pink monkey) Evolution "Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood." (Golding 72) First kill, Jack and his hunters are ecstatic. (Golding 72)
The desire to kill grows
Roger causes extreme pain to a boar when he drives a spear up her behind
The others do not question such behaviour "Volunteer" "boar" CLARA THE ISLAND:Advantages SETTING ... small "Edenic" Innocence, youth, joyfulness (Kate Smith) PINK Black Dead Parachutist Boxman266a. Mowani Mountain Camp. Digital image. Holiday Reviews. Trip Advisor, Aug. 2012. Web. 23 Sept. 2012. .

Some act of God [...] there was a long, deep pool in the beach with a ledge of pink granite at the further end."(Golding 7) Square landscape; platform of pink granite going upwards
Young palm trees, stayed small
Logs to sit on
Roof created by palms
naturally created bathing pool (filled with the tide)
(Golding 7) "Man o'war cove" "They found the end of the island, quite distinct and not magicked out of sense or shape [...] with one great block sitting out in the lagoon" (Golding 22) Description The mountain Little jungle and vegetation
Pink cliff
Narrow tracks winding upwards
Occasional plunges through the undergrowth "Mowani Mountain Camp" "What a place for a fort!" (Golding 115) The castle Rock Beginning: conch is nice and pink, children are still a bit civilized, youthful and want to be happy

End of the book: conch is fragile, no longer has that pretty pink colouring, children have lost their civilization, joyfulness and all that is left is savageness and desire to destroy Red cliff
Half cave over the rocks(Golding 115)
Becomes Ralph and his tribe's area, where Piggy gets killed (Golding 200) "Castle Rock" Island is untouched before the plane lands
Beginning: A fire goes out of hand destroys a bit of foliage...first sign of the boys destruction (Golding 45)
End: The boys put fire to the Island entirely, destroying fruit trees and source of food and all of it's beauty... (Golding 219)
The scar is not the only mark of human's destruction...the whole island is.
Similar to World War Island: Symbolism "terrible destruction" Order, Civilization, Authority, Power Brings boys together (Golding, 13)
Concept of authority, chieftainship -Ralph- (Golding, 19)
Disciplines boys into silence, obedience
Object of envy (Jack) Loss of civilization, Metamorphosis into savages Conch, destruction Epitome of Roger's sadism
Jack decides to hunt down and kill Ralph
Ralph's order and civilization is lost
No respect
Savages become masters of the island "See? See? That's what you'll get! I meant that! There isn't a tribe for you any more! The conch is gone-" (Golding, 201) Intelligence, Logic, Civilization, Adulthood, Thought
*Loss of the above through destruction* Associated to Piggy
Piggy considered the brains of the boys
Piggy is more mature, logic
Man made object links to adulthood/civilization
Used to light fire
First logical idea the boys have together Irony, The outside world, Fear, Death, Beast They wish for a sign, sigh is dead
Symbolizes the events happening outside the island
War happening around the world parallels the one on the island
Physical manifestation of the Beast
Confirms their fears
Reason for Simon's death ("Dead Parachutist") Destruction, Death, Insanity Aftermath of the 1st forest fire
Simon's death was in the darkening evening
Simon's fit with the LOTF -he gets overwhelmed in darkness ("Fear") "Simon found he was looking into a vast mouth. There was blackness within, a blackness that spread" (Golding, 159) Definition 1. the garden where according to the account in the Genesis Adam and Eve first lived 2. a place of pristine or abundant natural beauty Source the book of GENESIS Passages Symbol “ Something used [...…] as representing something else; a material object representing something, often [...…] immaterial; embelm, token or sign” ( “symbol”) Symbolism “ The practice of representing things by symbols, or of investing things with a symbolic meaning or character” (“symbolism”) Desjardins [2:8] And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. ("Genesis") Evil within mankind
Most characters accept : external,
Few understand : evil lies inside themselves. Simon- “ maybe it’s only us” (Golding, 96)
Pig (Simon) – “ You knew it didn’t you? I’m part of you” (Golding, 158)
Ralph too understands , he says he’s scared – of us (meaning the boys on the island)
(Golding ,174)
**** The wild ones overpower the rational ones. (Bull Snake) [2:9] Out of the ground the LORD God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. ("Genesis") T The Beast Pig:
Physically: represents cruelty

Symbolically: The Beast ( Golding, 158)
- The Flies represent the boys.
The Pig (Lord of the Flies)represents
not only evil but also one of the
-A leader; crazy; savage; hunter;
Who is one of the Evil Lords of Boys? Lord of the Flies [2:15] The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. ("Genesis") [2:17] but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die." ("Genesis") [2:16] And the LORD God commanded the man, "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; ("Genesis") (Nesbit, John) The Fire Fire = Smoke = Signal for boats/planes = civilization ( Kirby, Alex) When the boys start giving up on the fire they distance themselves from society

End of novel: kids have given up on fire and rescue. They’ve accepted their life as savages.

(SparkNotes Editors) [3:23] therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. ("Genesis") ("Merriam-Webster") ("Reflectionsonshalom") The characters are alone, new characters are introduced
Golding may use and shape the island to his own ideas, with little set standards
The isolation permits that no repercussions may occur on the outside world (“Black dark fire smoke rising”) Does it apply to the novel? The painted faces First: for hunting (camouflage)
BUT Jack realises:
The painted faces frees the wearer of the paint from their own selves. They leave their morals behind and become savage. ( “What effect […...] the paint?” )
“ He [Jack] was safe from shame or self-consciousness behind the mask of his paint” (Golding, 154)

End of book- two clans are differentiated by the paint:
“ ‘But they’ll be painted! You know how it is- ‘ [said Eric,] The others nodded. They understood […...] the liberation into savagery that the concealing paint brought.” (Golding, 191)

The boys that wear the paint have their hair tied back and are more comfortable than those without the paint . (Golding, 194) YES The island is pristine and untroubled
The boys arrive, minds innocent and clear (Golding 25/26)
They amuse themselves (Golding 61)
Evil sets in (Golding 98/99)
Consumes their minds, bodies
They ravage the island (Golding 44/219)
Eventually leave the island, ruined and torn (Golding 224) ( Dailey, Dan) Work Cited Golding, William. Lord of the Flies. Queen Square, London. 1954. Print.
