English Block 4- Due Thursday, February 5
"He swung back his right arm and hurled the spear with all his strength. From the pig-run came the quick, hard patter of hoofs, a castanet sound, seductive, maddening- the promise of meat. . . The pattering of pig's trotters died away in the distance. " (Golding 49)
"Simon spoke from inside the shelter. "Up a bit." Ralph turned to the shelter and lifted a branch with a whole tiling of leaves. "
In the beginning of this chapter, Jack comes close to killing a pig. He nearly skims it, but he still finds it and tries to kill it. This is important because it takes up a page of the chapter, but also because it shows how important Jack thinks hunting is. This is explained more later in the chapter why Jack should not think this.
This is the scene where Simon and Ralph are building the huts on the beach. It shows how they were the only ones working on the huts, while all the other kids were playing and goofing around.
LOTF Chapter 3- Huts on the Beach
"" I thought I might kill" "But you didn't" "I thought i might" Some hidden passion vibrated in Ralph's voice. "But you haven't yet" His invitation might have passed as casual, were it not for the undertone. (Golding 51)
"Simon turned away from them and went where the just perceptible path led him. Soon high jungle closed in. Tall trunks bore unexpected pale flowers all the way up to the dark canopy where life went on clamorously.
The last thing that happens in this chapter is where Simon is left alone by Jack and Ralph, and goes into his secret place in the jungle. This is important because it describes the forest, and it also shows how independent Simon is.
Also in this chapter, Jack and Ralph have a fight about what is more important. Ralph is arguing that all Jack does is hunt, and he never helps with anything. Ralph says that they need help to build huts because only him and Simon have been building them.
