Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Character Symbols Religious Imagery Lord of the Flies Analysis Project Two potential symbols so far, could be the pig that Jack failed to kill, or the conch shell. The piglet is something they need for survival, they need meat, but the inability to kill the piglet shows the limitations of the children in that theyre still children, unable to go through these brutal steps they need to take in order to survive. They knew very well why he hadnt: because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh. (31) The innocence and basic morality of children is represented, because theyre unable to commit an act to the pig, even if they need food. yet, most powerfully, there was the conch. The being that had blown that, had sat waiting for them on the platform with the delicate thing balanced on his knees, was set apart (22) For some reason or another, even if there is a more obvious leader, the conch shell sets apart Ralph apart from the other children. Judging a leader by the object on their lap seems kinda foolish to us, but it goes to show how powerful the object is on the island with the children. Point of View The island that the children are on, could possibly represent the story of the Garden of Eden, in the bible. There is a seeming darkness and evil tension of the place, something that the boys do realize, but just put it off as just a feeling that the children have, delusions, nightmares. In the story of the Garden of Eden, a snake sneaks in and tempts Eden. The snake is the devil, the snake is seen by the little children, and they have nightmares about it. Him that talked about the snakes. He was down there-’... The little boys screamed at them. Snakes! Snakes! Look at the snakes!” (46) The little children seem to see something that the older ones dont. Perhaps this too, ties into the bible as the innocent can see things that others cannot as they get older. When they arrived at the island, it was a paradise. It was unmarked, a wilderness with food, water, it was a utopia for the children, but in the Garden of Eden, the snake sneaks in. The snake is temptation, the devil, the source of evil. This could prove to be more evident as the story moves on. Already, the terrors of children have become one of the main topics of the story and I believe as the story further goes on evil will further taint the island Merridew has a leadership background and usually gasping, sweating, and swaying. Inside the floating cloak he was tall, thin, and bony; and his hair was red beneath the black cap. His face was crumpled and freckled, and ugly without silliness. Out of this face stared two light blue eyes frustrated now, and turning, or ready to turn, to anger. (Golding 20) Also, he his powerful and is controlling. But Merridew. Please, Merridew cant we?” (Golding 20) It demonstrates that the kids are looking at him as a leader. Jack is a leader but he acts tougher than he is in the inside. I think that Jack is going to be jealous over Ralph because the kids are going to give Ralph more attention and Jack will become a nobody. The point of view that the boys have or see is that of chaos destruction confusion this could be what the boys might feel or see after they crash land in a deserted island with no adults.And the way that the book is written is in a third person perspective.Which makes the story narration more relatable.But they also use the first person perspective to make some parts of the book more serious but can also make things light hearted.And they use these two point of views to make the book interesting.
