Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 10 "A storm of laughter arose and even the tiniest child joined in" (Golding 21). "He was searching his mind for simple words so that even the littluns would understand what assembly was about" (Ralph 79). "And that's not all. Them kids. The little 'uns. Who took any notice of 'em? Who knows how many we got?" (Piggy) "No we're not. What about the littluns?" "Sucks to the littluns!" "Someone's got to look after them." "Nobody has so far." "There was no need!..."(Ralph, Jack 101). "He's going to beat Wilfred" " What for?" Robert shook his head doughtfully. "I don't know he didn't say..."(Robert 159). "You wnat a real pig," said Robert, still caressing his rump, "because you've got to kill him." "Use a littlun, " said Jack, and everybody laughed" (Jack 115). "The older boys first noticed the child when he resisted. There was a group of little boys urging him forward and he did not want to go. He was a shrimp of a boy, about six years old, and one side of his face was blotted out by a mulberry-colored birthmark" (Golding 35). "They talk and scream. The littluns. Even some of the others. As if---" (Ralph 52). Ralph proves to Jack how the littluns are frightened and scared of something, or the beast. They are also influencing some of the older boys that there is something to be scared about. Golding shows that the 1st graders are doing what the older kids are doing. While the older kids are making fun of Piggy, the littler kids do the same not even knowing if it's ok or not ok. (following the big kids example) In this quote, Golding shows how the first graders are scared and terrified of the older kids. He also shows the intimidation from the older boys and how the 1st graders don't want to be made fun of like Piggy was. All in all the first grader with the mulberry-colored birthmark who is a first grader is scared and intimidated by the older boys which shows the other younger kids feelings. In this quote Jack is using the litluns as a hunting toy. He portrays actions that only benefit himself and obviously doesn't care for the littluns. He puts them down again and doesn't show signs of love and respect towards anyone. Robert explains how the chief, Jack, was going to beat the littluns and that they don't even know why. Jack always seemed like the type from the beginning of the book to pick on the littluns and use them as experiments. "Henry was the biggest of them. He was also a distant relative of that other boy whose mulberry-marked face had not been seen since the evening of the great fire...Henry was a bit of leader this afternon, beacuse the other two were Percival and Johnny, the smallest boys on the island...and the three children, kneeling in the sand, were at peace" (Golding 60). This quote shows many things about the three littluns, Percival, Henry, and Johnny. First of all Henry is the biggest of them. He also is a relative to the boy with the mulberry-marked face which he would never really understand. The other two boys are the smallest boys on the island which means they are the babies and the ones who cry the most. "The smaller boys were known now by the generic title of "littluns."... The undoubted littluns, those who aged about six, led a quite distinct, and at the same time intense, life of their own. They ate most of the day, picking fruit where they could reach it and not particular about ripeness and quality... They suffered untold terrors in the dark and huddled together for comfort. Apart from food and sleep, they found time for play, aimless and trivial, in the white sand by the bright water" (Golding 59). Piggy portrays the care for the first graders and shines a light on keeping track of all the littluns. This proves Piggy's love and care for everything. Exemplified in this quote is Ralph and Jack's attitude toward the littluns. Ralph wants someone to take care of them and watch over them like a mother or father would do. Jack doesn't care too much for the littluns and what happens to them. They actually admit in this quote how nobody has the watched the littluns so far which means they're doing whatever they want. Ralph uses smaller, simpler words for the littuns to understand. He wants everyone including the littluns to know and understand what he's talking about. He doesn't leave anyone out of the meeting. Golding describes the littuns as just little children who are just in their on little world, and depend on each other to help out and just be there for one another. The littluns are also not cared for by the biguns and are mostly by themselves for the most part. They depend on each other and all basically do similar things as a group.
