Transcript of Copy of Theme Concept Map for Lord of the Flies
In this quote the Lord of the Flies speaks to Simon telling him that the beast exist inside them. This confirms that evil inside the boys is the cause of their innate human savagery. The beast is an internal force that can not be defeated by hunting and killing it. The beast is the reason why things are the way they are for the boys. “The beast struggled foward, broke the ring and fell over the steep edge of the rock to the sand by the water. At once the crowd surged after it, poured down the rock, leapt on to the beast, screamed, struck, bit tore. There were no word, and no movement but the tearing of teeth and claws.” (Golding, 153)
In this quote Simon is attacked when he enters Jack's feast. At this point all of the boys are savages and have let thee evil within emerge.The boys eventually kill Simon due to their savagery. This is the result of the innate human evil that exist within. “The officer, surrounded by these noises, was moved and a little embarrassed. He turned away to give them time to pull themselves together; and waited, allowing his eyes to rest on the trim cruiser in the distance” (Golding, 202)
In this quote the boys weep in front of the naval officer due what events occured on the island. Due to the ongoing bloody war, the navy was able to rescue the boys. The boys might have been corrupted by the environment of war they were raised in causing their evil. "Listen all of you. Me and my hunters, we're living along the beach by a flat rock. We hunt and feast and have fun. If you want to join my tribe come and see us. Perhaps I'll let you join. Perhaps not." (Golding, 140)
In this quote Jack is requesting for boys to join his tribe. Jack's tribe partakes hunting, feasting, and having fun. These savage like activities pressure many of the boys into violent human nature and let their internal evil emerge from within. "There’s another thing. We can help them to find us. If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire." (Golding, 38)
In this quote Ralph is explaining to the boys that they must create a fire, so if a ship comes by the island they may notice them. In the novel, the fire is the boys only connection to civilization. When the signal fire grows weak, the boys become uncivilized and become savages. Ralph trying to create this signal fire shows his struggle to maintain civilized order. “We all built the first one, four of us the second one, and me'n Simon built the last one over there” (Golding, 80)
In this quote Ralph is explaining to the boys that Simon was the only boy who helped build all the shelters. The shelters also are a component to their civilization. Simon helping build these shelters for the boys shows the goodness in his heart and that he struggles to maintain civilized order. "He was safe from shame or self-consciousness behind the mask of his paint and could look at each of them inturn" (Golding, 140)
In this quote Jack's face is covered in paint. At this point in the novel Jack is a savage. Due to his face paint he is able to act savage like and let the evil inside him emerge. Jack has a weak continuum of evil because he is eager to engage in violence and cruelty because of his paint. "Roger, with a sense of delirious abandonment leaned all his weight on the leaver " (Golding, 180)
In this quote Roger pushes on the lever causing the great rock to launch down Castle Rock and kill Piggy and shatter the conch. Roger destroyed both a symbol of civilization and a civilized boy. Roger has a weak continuum of evil because he was eager to crush Piggy with the rock.
