William Golding

S4 National 5

Prose Study


Lord of the Flies – Chapter 7

We are learning to:

Success Criteria

Identify and discuss the use of symbolism in Chapter 7.

  • I can explain the ideas portrayed through the use of an object / person.

  • Jotter?

  • Planner on the desk?

  • Pen or pencil?

Achieving this S.C. means you are on target!


Chapter Summary

  • Ralph is dismayed by the state of the boys.

  • Jack discovers the tracks of a wild boar.

  • The boys devise a ritual dance to celebrate the hunt.

  • Ralph, Jack and Roger climb to the top of the island and discover the dead parachutist.

  • Terrified by their discovery, they flee down the mountain.


Shadows and Tall Trees

  • The chapter Shadows and Tall Trees relates to the text, in a word, as the summary.

  • The shadows are the hidden mysteries on the island, the unknowns that lurk in the dark depths of the shadows; it does not just relate to the time it takes place in.

  • Also, tall trees show the overgrown quality of the forest; its age and character, as well as its uninhabited aura.

  • It gives the feeling of things hidden behind those tall trees.


Symbolism – Group Task

  • Look at the following objects / people involved in Chapter 7.

  • Re-reading Chapter 7 – what does this person or object seem to represent?

The Pig

Waves

Jack

The Beast

Simon


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.


  • Jack:

  • 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.
