Lord of the Flies Ch 5
Transcript of Lord of the Flies Ch 5
“Ralph turned involuntarily, a black, humped figure against the lagoon.” (88)
The author uses the image of Ralph’s shadow to represent a dark figure that he didn’t know existed. This represents how the boys all have a ‘beast’ inside of them, and at the same time, it represents how the beast is something made from inside of their head out of their fear of the unknown.
Beast From Water
Lord of the Flies Ch 5
If you have motion sickness, we immediately apologize for the following Prezi
This Prezi by Chris and Ethan
Jack gets angry and starts becoming a savage.
Ralph wises up
The kids have an assembly
They talk about the beast and fear
Jack gets angry and leaves
“This meeting must not be fun, but business.” (76)
Ralph sees this as his last attempt to strengthen the order in the island. He does this so he can keep the peace on the island and stray away from savagery and such.
‘”I’m chief. I was chosen.’” (91)
This quote explains how Ralph is trying to justify his leadership so he can keep his authority, and therefore keep the peace.
“’Bollocks to the rules! We’re strong—we hunt! If there’s a beast, we’ll hunt it down! We’ll close in and beat and beat and beat—!’” (91)
Jack focuses on his personal beliefs, which brings out his savage side a small bit, so he urges everyone towards violence. He does this as to establish the power he so desperately wanted to have over everybody else.
Symbolizes fear of the unknown and savagery. The boys make a manifestation of their fear into a beast, which is never really a physical object. The fear eventually leads to savagery.
“’He says the beast comes out of the sea.’ The last laugh died away.” (88)
There was no solid evidence of a beast on the island, yet the boys tried to find one and created evil images in their head, even in objects that did not necessarily have any evil connotations.
“’What I mean is… maybe it’s only us.’” (89)
In this quote, Simon means to say that the beast that everyone was so afraid of was probably just part of their imagination, making it clear that it is a fear of the unknown. But the author could easily be conveying a different message of how the beast is inside of all of the boys. They all have an inner savage and it’s fear that leads them to do horrible things, such as killing Simon.
