English: Lord of the Flies Summative
Transcript of English: Lord of the Flies Summative
Lord of the Flies
Represents the evil in humans, specifically the boys.
Artistic interpretation of theme and imagery
Lord of the Flies
e 6 boys (painted in
5. The 6 boy (painted in black):
Smaller representation of the world.
A new found Independence with out adults.
The “littluns” are afraid of the island
because of the fear of the "beasties" and the unknown.
Simon represents the goodness and purity of humanity; he is nothing like the other boys. Quote: (56) "Simon is always about", "he's queer. He's funny." said Ralph
Kneeling down staring in to the Lord of the Fly’s eyes. He talks to the Lord of the Flies. Quote: (158) "There isn't anyone to help you. Only me. And I'm the beast."
I placed him in the middle of the painting to represent his knowledge and understanding of the happenings around him.
He is the only one that can see how the beast is not a real physical animal, rather the savagery that is within each boy.
He is often compared as a god like figure because he is all knowing.
With the killing of Simon, his body was not the only thing that left the island, but also the morals, kindness, and purity that he brought to it.
Tried to make it the focal point, and placed in the middle of all the boys.
Quote: (158) "Fancy thinking the beast was something you could hunt and kill."
Painted them white because the colour white often represents purity; I used it as their outer layer of how they are seen as kids, innocent.
I placed Jack and Ralph at the top of the world to represent their place in leadership, and their role on the island. Quote (Ralph): (19) "let him be chief with the trumpet thing." a boy yelled out
Quote (Jack): (18) "I ought to be chief", "because, I'm chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp."
Beside them were their lieutenants', Roger on Jack’s side and Piggy on Ralph’s side.
With Sam and Eric constantly being considered as one, I placed one of them on each side. This also describes the situation that they are in because in the story they are caught in the middle on whether they should stay with Ralph’s team or Jack’s team.
Reliance and unity.
By. Seline Yap
Quotes: (108) 'Sam 'n' Eric' said Ralph. (66) "Samneric. Get me a coconut. An empty one. " said Jack
Even in their more civilized ways I made Roger look down on Sam; representing how Roger feels and treats the 'littluns'.' I also painted Piggy holding Eric's hand to show Piggy's kindness towards others.
On the far right side I painted an important scene from the novel. It was when Piggy was killed. The painting shows Roger pushing the boulder towards piggy and the conch. We now know that with the death of Piggy and the shell breaking, it is a representation of order, civilization, intelligence, and sophistication that had left the island.
I painted the boys in the back black (evil influences, strength, and negative aspects of human experiences - including death, disease, famine, and sorrow)
They represent the same boys in the front, but instead their actions are showing their dark side.
All of the boys are facing inwards towards Simon; I used this to represent the participation of all the boys in Simon’s death. Although some of the boys did not physically participate in the killing of Simon they still contributed by not speaking up or taking action.
Ralph is on the far left blowing the conch, but know one is hearing it, or rather none of them care. As we already know the conch is a symbol of civilization and order.
Jack is holding a spear facing in Simon’s direction, and a rope attached to a pig. I painted the pig in the fire to represent his desire to for meat, and his cruel savage treatment towards animals, which later leads onto humans.
Sam and Eric are on both sides of Simon pointing spears in his direction. Caused by Jack's manipulation at the end of the story, they end up joining his group.
Light blue sky
Light blue: calmness, pure qualities
Transitions to red blood
red is commonly used to describe war, danger, strength, and power.
As roots start to develop over time, they become deeper and stronger, which make them harder to get out. In a certain sense this is an analogy of the boy’s characters on the island; as time had passed a lot of the boys were caught up deeply with savagery that they were not able to return back to their somewhat more civilized state (until an adult figure arrived on the island).
7. Fire & smoke
Only Connection to civilization.
Originally used for a signal fire. (smoke)
Quote: (64) "Roger stooped, picked up a stone, aimed, and threw it at Henry - threw it to miss."
Quote: (200) "The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee: the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist. Piggy, saying nothing, with no time for a grunt, traveled through the air sideways front he rock turning over as he went. The rock bounded twice and was lost in the forest. Piggy fell from forty feet and landed on his back across that square, red rock in the sea. His head opened and stuff came out and turned red. Piggy's arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig after it has been killed. then the sea breathed again in a long slow sigh, the water boiled white and pink over the rock;and when it went, sucking back again, the body of Piggy was gone."
