Transcript of Direct Quotes: L.O.T.F
Lord of the Flies What Sam and Eric Symbolize/Represents: QUOTE #6 Sam and Eric symbolizes reliance and unity, and because of this refer to them as one person called “Samneric”
They also represents the masses, as they are impressionable (influenced) and tend to not think for themselves. QUOTE #1: "They were twins, and the eye was shocked and incredulous at such cheery duplication. They breathed together, they grinned together, they are chunky and vital." (19) QUOTE #2: "The twins, Sam n' Eric, were the first to get a likely log but they could do nothing till Ralph, Jack, Simon, Roger, and Maurice found room for a hand-hold." (39) QUOTE #3: "They suffered untold terrors in the dark, and huddled together for comfort." (59)
"They obeyed the summons of the conch, partly because Ralph blew it, and he was big enough to be a link with the adult world of authority..." (59) “We ran as fast as we could –”“Bashed into things-”
“The beast followed us-”
“I saw it slinking behind trees-”“Nearly touched me-” (Golding, 100) This is in chapter 6, when Sam and Eric are telling the boys how they "saw" the beast. This is in chapter 1, after Ralph blew the conch and all the boys gathered, and he saw the identical boys. This shows unity because they act as one person, and whatever one person does, the other does the same. Golding uses imagery to show that Sam and Eric are two people, but have one mind. This is in chapter 2, when the boys are going to make a fire as a signal. QUOTE #4: "In theory one should have been asleep and one on watch. But they could never manage to do things sensibly if that meant acting independently, and sense staying awake all night was impossible, they had both gone to sleep." (96) This is in Chapter 6, when the twins were on duty to make/watch the fire. QUOTE #5: This shows that the twins are now believing that there is a beast, and having them tell the others makes them believe in it even more. This shows that the twins have to wait for authority to do something. This shows unity because, they are inseparable. One cannot do something without the other. "'Sam 'n Eric. Call them to an assembly. Quietly. Go on.'"
"The twins, holding tremulously to each other,.." (93) This is in chapter 6, when Ralph tells the twins to get the others. This is in chapter 4, when he (narrator) talks about the littluns. This shows that the littluns are becoming more settled about not having an adult around. And having the conch makes them feel that there is still order, and having Ralph as a leader is the closet they will get as an adult. This shows that they are followers because they follow orders, and Ralph is refering them as one person because they cannot leave each other.
