Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 "They knew very well why he hadn't: because of the enormity of the knife descending and cutting into living flesh because of the unbearable blood." (31).The boys knew they were going to need meatand food eventually but they couldn't build up the nerve to actually kill the creature. They are only twelve year old school-boys who probably have never killed anything, must less a wild hog before the crash. "'There's nothing in it of course. Just a feeling. But you can feel as if you're not hunting, but- being hunted, as if something's behind you all the time in the jungle.'" (53).The older boys are finally feeling what the littluns feel when they're by themselves in the forest. They're finally realizing that whatever else is on this island might not be so friendly if they happen to cross paths. This is evil because this passage is a little eerie, meaning that even the older boys are scared of what they could come across on the island. "'Before I could kill it- but- next time!' Jack slammed his knife into a trunk and looked round challengingly." (Jack, 33).Jack was so angry at himself because he choked up when he needed to kill that pig. As if he almost expected Ralph to step up and one-up him. This was a very aggressive yell because it's almost like you could hear him yelling at you personally. It's evil to the pig and rest of the group because if Jack gets too angry about not being able to kill or too hungry, he could possibly kill one of them. "'We spread round. I crept, on hands and knees. The spears fell out because they hadn't barbs on. The pigs ran away and made an awful noise-'""'It turned back and ran into the circle, bleeding-'""All the boys were talking at once, relieved and excited."(74).The way Golding wrote this dialogue was in a way that the boys were interrupting each other because they were so excited by this story. These boys are so malicious to animals because they're "hungry". I say that Jack is just naturally vicious when it comes to hurting others, because even after the other boys started to tell HIS story, he couldn't bear for the others to miss any details so he started to tell it himself. And they let him! They're too scared to defy the mighty Jack Merridew to even voice their own experiences about this horrific event. This is evil because no normal human being has that much blood lust in their brains, must less a twelve year old. "The vivid horror of this, so possible and so nakedly terrifying, held them all silent." (85).The reality that one of them could get hurt on this island is finally hitting them, and even the "bigguns" are terrified. They finally realize that this island isn't all that safe considering that even though they've explored most of it, there were places where they felt like they were being watched. This is evil because it gives you the feeling like you're being watched, speaking as the reading, it makes you a little paranoid. "The spear moved forward inch by inch and the terrified squealing became a high-pitched scream. Then Jack found the throat and the hot blood spouted over his hands. The sow collapsed under them and they were heavy and fulfilledupon her" (135).This time it's Jack's turn to finally kill something the way he wants to, gory. I feel like Jack is actually loving this whole divide between the boys because it gives him an excuse to be as insane and cruel as he wants to the other boys and to the animals on the island. "'He's going to beat Wilfred'""'What for?'""Robert shook his head doubtfully.""'I don't know. He didn't say. He got angry and made us tie Wilfred up. He's been' -he giggled excitedly- 'he's been tied for hours, waiting-'"'But didn't the chief say why?'""'I never heard him.'" (159).For some god-forsaken reason, Jack ties up this poor kid who immediately regrets his decision by joining Jack's tribe. This is evil because all we know is that Jack just tied him up for no good reason instead of having a legitimate reason for thinking he need to be tied up. "The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee; the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist. Piggy, saying nothing, with no time for even a grunt, traveled through the air sideways from the rock, turning over as he went. The rock bounded twice and was lost in the forest. Piggy fell forty feet and landed on his back across the square red rock in the sea. His head opened and stuff came out and turned red. Piggy's arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig's after it has been killed. Then the sea breathed again in a long, slow sigh, the water boiled white and pink over the rock; and when it went, sucking back again, the body of Piggy was gone" (181).Well, Piggy's gone. The narrator doesn't seem to care though. He's very vague and bored with Piggy's death, which leads me to think that he doesn't care about Piggy's death. This is evil because the narrator isn't even letting the reader grieve over Piggy because of all the action going on in the rest of the paragraph. You dont know Roger. Hes a terror (189).Samneric were obviously tortured/prodded with a spear by Roger and some accomplices because they are now more scared of him than Jack. This is evil because Samneric are now terrified of Roger and his unrestrained evil. "'Use a littlun,' said Jack, and everybody laughed." (115).Okay this is just morbid. In context, Jack is saying that they should EAT a littlun if they don't catch this boar which is obviously evil because Jack has gotten to the point where he's joking about cannibalism, and he's not even hungry yet! In William Goldings Lord of The Flies, the reoccurring theme of evil actions serves to prove the point that no matter the circumstances,there is evil inside of everyone, waiting to be exposed. EVIL
