Symbolism

Symbolism

  • Waves:

  • the heartlessness and impassivity of the island, and more specifically the area they were travelling.

  • It is real, it is harsh, and if you fail, it could cost you your life.

  • Also, a barrier, from salvation.

  • Mountain:

  • daunting precipice where anything can happen; an unknown fear that could be life or death; holds an unseen beast.

  • Pig:

  • not just a means for food, but also a channel in which it is seen as justified for savagery to be present. You must stop at no barrier; the pig is an animal, to trap it you must think like it, move like it, be like it, and therefore become an animal yourself.

  • Beast:

  • the unknown fear everybody has.

  • Every nightmare manifested from living on an island of possible terrors.

  • Conformation of a beastly being that could cause death, and drag them off into the night.

  • willingness for savagery.

  • Example: using the little'uns for the game of slayer and pig.

  • Also, antagonist and challenger of order.

  • Simon:

  • Hope, to infer into his statement that Ralph will return from whence he came.

  • Also, keeping balance and aiding those in need by stopping the dispute and offering to go and tell Piggy and the litt'uns about the extended journey.

  • Chapter 7 of the Lord of the Flies portrays many things; loss in morality, one of the first slips into savagery, and the sense that there end is soon approaching.

  • The readers feels as if death is imminent, whether by a so called "beast" discovered, or by their own hands. many things relate to this chapter, just as this chapter relates to many things.
