Cry of the Hunters
Cry of the Hunters
"the bruised flesh was inches in diameter over his right ribs, with a swollen and bloody scar where the spear had hit him." pg. 203
Shock Factor
"A naval officer stood on the sand, looking
down at Ralph in wary astonishment" pg.222
"I should have thought that a pack of British boys - you're all British aren't you? - would have been able to put up a better show than that" pg. 224
"Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!"
pg. 206
"This was a savage whose image refused to blend with that ancient picture of a boy in shorts and shirt" (pg. 203)
"What are they going to do-' From the top of the towering rock came the incomprehensible reply 'Roger sharpened a stick at both ends.' (pg. 211)
"Ralph moaned faintly. Tired though he was, he could not relax and fall into a well of sleep for fear of the tribe."(pg. 206)
"Piggy was everywhere, was on his neck, was become terrible in darkness and death."(pg. 211)
"The officer leaned down and looked closely at Ralph 'Two killed?' (pg. 223)
"Squirming a little, concious of his filthy appearance" (pg. 223)
"A single cry quickened his heart-beat and leaping up, he dashed away towards the ocean side and the thick jungle till he was hung up among creepers" (pg. 217)
"And there again, shrill and inevitable, was the ululation sweeping across the island. At that sound he shied like a horse among the creepers and ran once more till he was panting" (pg. 218)

"There were many things he could do. he could climb a tree- but that was putting all his eggs in one basket. If he were detected, they had nothing more difficult to do than wait" (pg. 217)
"He stumbled over a root and the cry that pursued him rose even higher. He saw a shelter burst into flames and the fire flapped his right shoulder and there was the glitter of water. Then he was down, rolling over and over in the warm sand, crouching with arm up to ward off, trying to cry for mercy" (pg. 222)
Symbolic Significance
Spears represented savagery because they became items that delivered death and pain. Every savage in Jack's tribe had a spear. They stuck a pig's head on a double-sided spear and the were going to do the same to Jack.
"From the top of the tower came an incomprehensible reply. Roger sharpened a stick at both ends."
Fire was used to represent hope in the beginning of the book but in this chapter, it was used as a tool of destruction. The whole island was being burned down by the fire and they also tried to use it to hurt Ralph to get him out of hiding.
"All at once, the lights flickering ahead of him merged together, the roar of the forest rose to a thunder and a tall bush directly in his path burst into a great fan-shaped flame. He swung to the right, running desperately fast, with the heat beating on his left side and the fire racing forward like a tide."
The officer represents civilization. When all the kids saw the officer they just stopped what they were doing. They realized how inappropriately they were acting. They were finally being rescued and taken back to their homes.
"A naval officer stood on the sand,
looking down on Ralph in wary
astonishment. On the beach behind
him was a cutter, her bows hauled up
and held by 2 ratings."
