Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Symbol: The conch shell Golding creates Jacks character because in any society there is always someone angry who causes problems. Golding portrays Jack as a rude and angry boy. He does this to foreshadow the future conflict that Jack will cause. We dont want you, said Jack, flatly. (Golding 24) In the beginning of the book, Golding describes Jack as an innocent choir boy. Jack transforms into someone savage and bloodthirsty....compulsion to track down and kill that was swallowing him up, (Golding 51) Character: Jack Point of View: Golding switches from the entire group view to focusing on only Jack.

From the pig run came the quick, hard patter of hoofs, a castanet sound, seductive, maddening- the promise of meat...raised his head and breathed in gently with flared nostrils, (Golding 48) Golding describes Jack in order to illustrate how he has changed since the beginning of the book. His sandy hair, considerably longer than it had been when they dropped in, was lighter now... and except for a pair of tattered shorts held up by his knife-belt he was naked. (Golding 48) Third Person Omniscient Religious Imagery: The Fire The fire symbolizes two different ideas. First, Golding uses the fire to symbolize a savior. The boys believe that the fire is what will draw attention to them and get them rescued off the island. We can help them to find us. If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire. (Golding 38) Contrary to that, the fire also symbolizes Hell. When the boys are irresponsible, the fire get out of control, and the young child with the mark on his face burns. Golding involves this part in order to further demonstrate how savage the boys are becoming. them little uns was wandering about down there where the fire is.. him with the mark on his face, I dont see him.

Ill give the conch to the next person to speak, (Golding 33) The conch also represents power. Golding does this to illustrate how Piggy keeps attempting to gain hold of the conch to make the boys listen to him. I got the conch, said Piggy indignantly. You let me speak!” (Golding 42) and I got the conch, said Piggy, in a hurt voice. I got a right to speak. (Golding 44)
