Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 DONATE by Alissa Shaw and Alejandra Carreno The conch shell is a very important object for the boys in the story. They use it to call all boys together, but they also use it to keep order between them. The power the conch holds is shown in the quote, ...most obscurely, yet most powerfully, there was the conch. (Golding 22) This quote shows that the conch is a very important part for the boys to take order with. It is a sign of leadership and it is why Ralph got chosen to become the leader of the boys. Its also used to keep order within the boys. “‘Then Ill give him the conch. Conch?’ Thats what this shells called. Ill give the conch to the next person to speak. He can hold it when hes speaking. This quote shows the boys have to use the conch to help the know when to talk and when not to talk. The conch is a very important part to the plot so far because it has been used to help the boys along their journey to find a way to survive alone. So far the conch has many uses in the story, but along the story it will also have a bigger meaning. Symbol(Alejandra) Lord of the Flies Checkpoint #1 Ralph is one of the boys that is stuck on an island because of a plane crash. "He was old enough, twelve years and a few months, to have lost the prominent tummy of childhood, and not yet old enough for adolescence to have made him awkward." (Golding, 10) This illustrates that Ralph is not quite yet and adolescent but also isnt a toddler or a baby, he is a twelve year old boy who's trying to figure out his life. Now that he is trapped with other boys the need to find a leader to try to take order within them. But there was a stillness about Ralph as he sat that marked him out: there was is size and attractive appearance; and most obscurely, yet most powerfully, there was the conch. (Golding 22) This quote shows that Ralph is a boy who is very attractive and is tall, but there is also something about him that the boys find interesting and they think that he is capable to take charge. Also, they see that he has the conch shell and the rest of the boy, the shell shows kind of a leader and a person who can take charge. Ralphs symbolizes a leader because like in the book he is a strong leader that can take charge over a crowd of people. Character (Alejandra) Throughout the selection, the point of view transitions between third person omniscient and third person limited. The selection begins with third person omniscient in the quote, Out of this face stared two light blue eyes, frustrated now, and turning, or ready to turn. to anger Piggy asked no names. He was intimidated by this uniformed superiority and the offhand authority in Merridews voice. (Golding 20). From this quote, the reader can see the actions and emotions of multiple characters during a specific situation, which is important because it reveals more about each character, such as Jacks ability to intimidate and Piggys cowardice. Through the use of third person omniscient, the reader is able to see multiple perspectives of different characters to understand what they are thinking and feeling. The point of view later switches to third person limited which can be seen through the quote, I got the conch. said Piggy, in a hurt voice Im scared-’... Piggy lost his temper. (Golding 44). With third person limited, the reader can only understand how one specific character feels, but it gives the reader a deep understanding about what is going on within that individual character. From this quote, we can see how sensitive Piggy is and how he expresses his emotions, explaining even more about specific aspects of his character. Point of View (Alissa) The island the boys are stranded on is an example of religious imagery. The island is a representation of the Garden of Eden because it is a peaceful and substantial place which can be seen through the quote, But this is a good island Its wizard. Theres food and drink and... While were waiting we can have a good time on this island. (Golding 34). In the midst of a horrible situation, the boys are not worried because they see the island as a sanctuary and, instead, enjoy their newly acquired freedom. The beastie the small boy encounters exemplifies the serpent that deceives Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Though the small boy is certain he saw this beastie, Ralph does not believe it exists and argues with the small boy, You couldnt have a beastie, a snake-thing, on an island this size... (Golding 36). The beastie is able to mislead the young boy into thinking something is there, which makes himfrightened and confused and act differently than he normally would, similarly to how the serpent confused Adam and Eve into doing the wrong thing, even though they knew they shouldnt.
