Lord of the Flies
Based on Ms. Cerulli’s lessons
By the beginning of chapter 3, Jack has become an animal-like hunter. These pages show how Jack transformed from a proper English choir boy who hesitated at the thought of killing a pig into a human being who is desperately trying to satisfy his hunger for meat. Now, Golding describes Jack as “almost dog-like.” The once proper boy walks “uncomfortably on all fours” like a lone animal stalking its prey. Jack is converting into more primitive means while he is spending time on the island. Jack’s transformation is also described in how he undergoes physical changes while on the island. His hair becomes longer, while the sun changes the color of it. The sun has also made his skin like a large freckle, while it is peeling with sunburn. Aside from the remains of his shorts, Jack is naked, showing how he has changed. All of these changes represent Jack’s move away from civilized life and towards savagery. Even the way Jack’s body behaves reflects this change. . .

It is civilization that steps in and saves humanity from our primal depravity. Human nature is nastyand human culture rescues. In Hobbes' view, being "civilized" is good and being a "savage" is bad.
