Imagery in lord of the flies

“Ralph continued to watch the ship, ravenously.”

With hunger

He ate up the sight of the ship. He was hungry for rescue, to attract the ship’s attention, for the ship to get them off this island.

Starving

Famished

Ravenous

But, not just hungry… Golding intensifies the feeling with his adjective. Synonyms for hungry?

Of all the synonyms, RAVENOUS hints at a primal urge, at the desperation Ralph felt.

“The boy with fair hair lowered himself down the last few feet of rock and began to pick his way towards the lagoon. Though he had taken off his school sweater and trailed it now from one hand, his grey shirt stuck to him and his hair was plastered to his forehead. All round him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat. He was clambering heavily among the creepers and broken trunks when a bird, a vision of red and yellow, flashed upwards with a witch-like cry; and this cry was echoed by another.”

“Here and there, little breezes crept over the polished waters beneath the haze of heat. When these breezes reached the platform the palm-fronds would whisper, so that spots of blurred sunlight slid over their bodies or moved like bright, winged things in the shade.

Piggy looked up at Ralph. All the shadows on Ralph’s face were reversed; green above, bright below from the lagoon. A blur of sunlight crawling across his hair.”
