Transcript of Symbols & Motifs - Lord of the Flies

Symbols & Motifs William Golding Lord of the Flies The Conch The conch shell is used to bring order and civilisation to the people.
It symbolises the democracy among the tribe, firstly when Ralph is elected chief and then when it is used to call meetings. Piggy and The Spectacles With the breaking of the conch, comes the destruction of order in society. This results in chaos on the island.
