Storyboard Text

  • "Shut up! Wait! Listen!" He went on in the silence, bourne on his triumph. "There is another thing. We can help them to find us. If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire." (Golding 38)
  • "Life became a race with the fire and the boys scattered through the upper forest. To keep a clean flag of flame flying on the mountain was the immediate end and no one looked further." (Golding 41)
  • " So long as your hunters remember the fire - You and your fire!" (Golding 53)
  • The fire is the most important thing on the island. How can we ever be rescued except by luck, if we don't keep a fire going?... Look at us! How many are we? And yet we can't keep a fire going to make smoke. Don't you understand? Can't you see you ought to - ought to die before we let the fire out?" (Golding 86)
  • "You want a fire, I think, and a drum and you keep time to the drum." (Golding 127)
  • "Ralph put his hands in the cold, soft ashes of the fire and smothered a cry." ( golding 135)
