Lord of the Flies
Transcript of Lord of the Flies
Piggy Intelligent ---> I believe that Piggy is intelligent because he makes the group think of the big picture on the island. H comes up with the ideas, and then tells Ralph he puts them into action. When Ralph finds a "rock" Piggy tells him that it is a shell and it is called a "conch." Then Piggy taught Ralph how to use it showing his intelligence. "We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us-" (Golding 12) This reminds me of Sayid because from lost. He fixes the transmitter device and figures out where they can get a better signal. He is the brains of the group Awkward ---> I believe that Piggy is awkward because he is stubby, and always refers to his aunt. He cannot survive by himself because of his asthma and does not have the physical features to fend for himself. He is very easy to make fun of. “You’re talking too much,” said Jack Merridew. “Shut up, Fatty.” (Golding 17) This reminds me of Charlie from lost. He is always out on his own and never seems to be fully there. He is a very awkward character on lost Mature I believe that Piggy is mature because he represents the grown up. When the boys lit the fire, he made them aware of the dead wood that was going to be their fire wood and how it was going to catch on fire. Also he made the group aware of the fact how the boy with the mark on his face was missing and nobody else realized. “That little’un-” gasped Piggy- “him with the mark on his face, I don’t see him. Where is he now?” (Golding 46) This reminds me of Sun on lost. Even though her husband does not let her do anything she handles the matter very maturely and knows what she is doing.
Civilized I believe that Piggy is civilized because he strongly believes in the rules of the conch and he also does not believe in the “breast”. “I got the conch! Just you listen!” (Golding 45) This reminds me of Claire in Lost. When they realize the dead bodies in the plane are attracting animals she comes up with the idea of having memorials for the people that did not survive the terrible crash, making it a more civilized. Follower I believe that Piggy is a follower because he listens to everything that Ralph orders him to do and relies on him for his survival. People do not listen to what he says so he must follow Ralph to give him ideas. “Now go back, Piggy, and take names. That’s your job. So long.” (Golding 22) This reminds me of Hurley. Hurley is could not be a leader because no one would listen to him. He takes orders from Jack and helps out as much as possible. Work Cited
