Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Symbolic Objects In LOTF double click to change this title text! Chapter 1 Chapter 2 "'His specs-use them as burning glasses!' Piggy was surrounded before he could back away." (Jack,40). Piggy's glasses start the fire which is vital to survival. Later on in the chapter Jack points out that after all, Piggy's glasses helped them immensely. Chapter 4 Chapter 6 "Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Bash her in" (The boys, 75)This exhibits how the islandmade the boys so inhumaneafter only being there fora few weeks. Chapter 5 "What I mean is . . . maybe its only us." (Simon, 89)This is what Simon is sayingabout the beast. He believes that the beast is the boysthemselves "There was a sudden bright explosion and corkscrew trail across the sky; then darkness again and stars. There was a speck above the island, a figure dropping swiftly beneath a parachute, a figure that hung with dangling limbs." (narrator, 95) This is when the parachute man isintroduced. Ralph and Piggy are discussing how much they wish there were adults with them and how much more easy everything would be if they were.Just then, a plane is shot down anda dead man falls to the island. Thisis showing how things are also adisaster in the grown up world. Chapter 7 "'No, I'm not. I just think you'll get back alright'" (Simon, 111)Here Simon is telling Ralph that although he is not sure about the others, he believes that Ralph will get home safely. This is symbolizing that Ralph will indeed return home safely and also the reoccurring wiseness of Simon. Chapter 8 "Beyond the screen of leaves the sunlight pelted down and the butterflies danced in the middle their unending dance. He knelt down and the arrow of the sun fell on him...presently he was thirsty, and then very thirsty. He continued to sit." (narrator, 133) Here Simon has gone off without telling anyone and found this extremely peaceful hidden spot in the forest. This resembles meditation and fasting which is often practiced through religion. This is another example of how Simon is a Christ figure. Chapter 9 "'And the conch doesnt count at this end of the island-'" (Jack, 150) ll of the boys are gathered at "Jacks side of the island", Ralph wants to speak and is holding the conch and when he points this out he gets shot down by Jack. The conch losing it's power is a sigh of order and rule falling. "From his left hand dangled Piggy's broken glasses." (narrator, 168)Piggy's glasses represent smarts and reason. This shows just howfar the boys come from reasonby the end of the book. Chapter 11 "The rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee; the conch exploded into a thousand white fragments and ceased to exist" (narrator, 181) Thisquote is Piggy's death. Obviously, Piggy'sdeath is very significant because he represents the humane world and his deathshows that they have lost all touch with peace.Along with Piggy's death goes the crushing ofthe conch. The conch represents civilization so when it is shattered it shows how all civilization on the island is gone. Overall, I believe that my reading focus, symbolic objects,had the greatest effect on the novel The scar: "All around him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat." (narrator, 1) This is important because it shows how easily mankind can destroy naturesimply by being on it. Chapter 10 Cites: conch Lord Of The Flies by William Golding Sarah Whisnant
