Transcript of Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths and Weaknesses
Ralph,
Jack
and

Piggy

Jack
Jack is a hunter, he knows the forest and is tough as a brick. He can think fast in a tight situation and feels hunting is the best thing to do to survive.
Piggy
Piggy has brains and knows clearly right from wrong. He is an intelligent boy that tries his absolute hardest to instill his knowledge with the savagery stricken boys.
Ralph
Ralph is a natural leader. He believes in order and assembly in order to get rescued
Weakness
Jack is a hunter, in the mind and in the body. Everything he does is always about him, portraying a very egocentric personality
Weakness
Jack is a hunter, in the mind and in the body. Everything he does is always about him, portraying a very egocentric personality
Weaknesses
Ralph is a strong leader by far but struggles with fast and crucial thinking. He often finds his mind clouded in stressful situations.
Having a sensible mind and and having a survival mind can
be difficult to put in sync. When you have both, one can be
powerful and make a difference. In the novel all the
boys have different modes of survival and critical thinking. Jack, Piggy and Ralph are very different with different minds. When put into a tough situation it is hard to put all of their minds together to help make the best possible decision. Together they can create a perfect idea, but most of the time when faced with a challenging situation, one mind takes over. Ralph has a very democratic way of thinking using clear common sense to help the boys stay in order for the time being. Piggy is very knowledgeable and shows a great amount of respect for order and routine among the boys. And Jack has a very brutal, egocentric mind that feels the need to have to dominate all of the time. Working together worked at first, but when they got a taste of what living alone with no grown-ups to supervise them, one mind slowly takes all of the boys over. Jacks way of thinking soon becomes the 'normal' way of thinking for most of the boys. Through this
domination Golding is trying to show us, that humanity has the possibility to become savage.
QUIZ TIME!
See if you can answer these questions in your head during my presentation!
Lord of the Flies

Why do you think all of the boys voted for Ralph to be chief even though they all just met him?
What attribute (physically or emotionally) makes Jack not like Piggy from the start?
What kind of personality does Jack display?
What quality makes Piggy feel so welcomed and attracted to Ralph to be his friend?
With the very different strengths and weaknesses displayed among all of the main characters, why do you think savagery took over?
"There aren't any grown-ups. We shall have to look after ourselves".(31)
"And another thing, we can't have everybody talking at once. We'll have hands up like at school." --- Conch? That's what the shells called. I'll give the conch to the next person to speak. He can hold it when he's speaking and no one is to interrupt his but me"(31).
Strengths
"There is another thing, we can help them find us, if a ship comes near the island it may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make smoke."(37)
Weaknesses
Piggy is a very smart boy but doesn't seem very fond of doing hard work. He also has troubles with finding the courage from his very knowledgeable mind to stand up for himself
'Sit down all of you. They raided us for fire. They're having fun. But the--'. They were regarding him gravely, not yet troubled by any doubts about his sufficiency. Ralph pushed the idiot hair out of his eyes and looked at Piggy. 'But the....oh....the fire! Of course the fire. He started to laugh, then stopped and became fluent instead. He paused again and the silence became full of doubt and wonder. Piggy whispered urgently. 'Rescue'(156).
"They could be an army-or hunters". (19)
"Come on! Ill creep up and stab!' The mask compelled them". (67)
'You and your blood, Jack Merridew! You and your hunting! We might have gone home-' 'The job was to much. We needed everyone' Ralph turned. 'You could have had everyone when the shelters were finished, but you had to hunt-' 'We needed meat' said Jack (75).
"Jack was on top of the sow, stabbing downward with his knife. Roger found a lodgement for his weight.- Then Jack found the throat and the hot blood spouted over his hands". (149)
'You're always scared.' 'I got the conch-' 'Conch! Conch! Shouted Jack, 'we don't need the conch anymore. We know who ought to say things. What good did Simon do speaking or Bill, or Walter? Its time people knew they've got to keep quiet and leave deciding things to the rest of us.

Why do you think all of the boys voted for Ralph to be chief even though they all just met him?
'The shells are dry. People drink from the river.' there was a murmur of asset. 'Not that there is anything wrong with drinking from the river'. (84)
'we chose the rocks along beyond the bathing-pool for a laboratory. That was sensible too. Now you go where ever you want. That's dirty.' (85-86)
'Wait a minute! I mean who built all three? We all built the first one. four of us the second and me 'n' Simon built the last one over there. No don't laugh'. (85)
' We had to have them in the hunt,' he said, 'or there wouldn't have been enough for a ring'. (73)
Piggy began again. 'You didn't ought to have let the fire out. You said that you'd keep the fire going-' This from Piggy, and the wails of agreement from some of the hunters drove Jack to violence (75).
'Ralph's not a hunter. He never got us meat. He isn't a prefect and we know nothing about him. He just gives orders and expects people obey for nothing. All this talk'. (139)
'I'm going off by myself. He can catch his own pigs. Anyone who wants to hunt when I do can come too'. (140)
'S'right. It's a shell. A conch he called it. Its ever so valuable'. (11)
'I got the conch! Just you listen! The first thing we ought to have made was shelters down there by the beach. It wasnt half cold down there in the night. But the first time Ralph says 'fire' you goes howling and screaming up this here mountain like a pack of kids! (45).
'Which is better- to be a pack of painted savages or sensible like Ralph is?' (200)
'Now I only got one eye, just you wait!' (76)
'They blinded me. See? That's Jack Merridew. You call an assembly, Ralph we got to decide what to do'. (188)
'But i don't ask for my glasses back, not as a favor. I don't ask you to be a sport, I'll say, not because you're strong, but because what's right. Give me my glasses I'll say. You got to!' (190)
Then went on Piggy, 'that boy-I forget-' 'You're talking to much,' said Jack Merridew. 'Shut up Fatty'. (17)
You would, would you Fatty!' Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy's head. Piggy's glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks. Piggy cried out, 'My specs!'. (75)
"On the end of the platform Piggy was lying flat, looking down into the brilliant water. 'People don't help much.' said Ralph". (55)
