Storyboard Text

  • Jack manipulates Ralph by asking him, in front of the other boys, whether he is frightened
  • ...hair much too long, tangled here and there, knotted round a dead leaf or twig; clothes, worn away, stiff like his own with sweat, put on, not for decorum or comfort but out of custom; the skin of the body scurfy with brine-- (110)
  • The forest near them burst into uproar. Demoniac figures with faces of white and red and green rushed out howling...stark naked save for the paint and a belt was Jack (140).
  • conflict between Ralph and Jack has escalated to a real struggle for power, as Jack’s brand of violence and savagery and changes Ralph’s disciplined community in the boys’ conception of their lives on the island.
  • With the brutal, animalistic murder of Simon, the last vestige of civilized order on the island is stripped away, and brutality and chaos take over.
  • “Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!” (152)
  • Simon rushes towards the group determined to tell them the beast is nothing but a dead body. However, the boys are incensed with the tribal dance and the thrill of reenacting the hunt and turn on Simon. This repeated chant echoes the chant from chapter four during the pig hunt.
  • The chief led then, trotting steadily, exulting in his achievement. He was a chief now in truth; and he made stabbing motions with his spear. From his left hand dangled Piggy’s broken glasses. (168)
  • As civilization and order have eroded among the boys, so has Ralph’s power and influence, to the extent that none of the boys protests when Jack declares him an enemy of the tribe.
  • The boys' appearance has become less and less civilized as the novel progresses. Their outward appearance is a reflection of their inward state.
  • Roger crushes the conch shell as he looses the boulder and kills Piggy, the character least able to understand the savage impulse.
  • “You’re a beast and a swine and a bloody, bloody thief!” (177)
  • Jack and the hunters have become the embodiment of evil. They attack Ralph and Piggy in an effort to usurp power.
  • Ralph had thought the signal fire was the only way to lure rescuers to the island. Ironically, although it is indeed a fire that lures a ship to the island, it is not an ordered, the forest fire Jack’s hunters set solely for the purpose of killing Ralph.
  • : “We saw your smoke. What have you been doing? Having a war or something?” (207
  • Ralph's camp is attacked at night. After the tussle, they realize Jack had not come for the conch shell, which now is meaningless, but the glasses, which allow the ability to make fire. This last symbol of civilization is now crushed of its original purpose. Jack is now chief.
  • As Ralph confronts Jack in a fight for authority, he exclaims that Jack is a beast, confirming what Simon learned earlier, the beast is inside us. He also keeps accusing Jack of theft, although this accusation is meaningless in the absence of civilization.
  • Jack sets the jungle on fire to smoke Ralph out of hiding. Just when Ralph is surrounded by savages on the beach, their hunt is interrupted by the arrival of a naval officer. Ironically, Jack's act of savagery is the cause of their finally being rescued. The naval officer, who is at war himself, thinks that the children are just playing a game, another example of irony.
