Piggy s death lord of the flies movie

Piggy’s Death – Lord of the Flies movie

  • As we watch the scene in which Piggy dies, create a visualiser with information on how Piggy behaves in this scene.

12-15 mins

How does Piggy behave in “Castle Rock?”


Piggy s death

Piggy’s death

In Chapter Eleven we see a much braver Piggy than we saw at the beginning of the novel. Without his glasses he is very vulnerable yet he insists on going to Castle Rock with Ralph.

  • Why do you think he does this?

Which is better – to have rules

and agree, or to hunt and kill?

At Castle Rock Piggy speaks out for civilized behaviour,

just before he is killed by Roger.

  • Group Discussion Questions

7 minutes


Symbolism

Symbolism?

  • When Piggy is killed, the conch, which he is holding, is also destroyed.

  • What is the significance of Piggy’s death and the shattering of the conch?


Significance

Significance

  • Roger kills Piggy with a boulder and in Chapter Four we saw a suggestion of his sadistic nature when he threw stones at a littlun.

  • Piggy’s death and the shattering of the conch signify the end of everything Piggy and the shell represented on the island – rational thought, order, rules, democracy.
