Lord of the Flies

Chapter 3


Based on Ms. Cerulli’s lessons

Views of the island chapter 3

Views of the IslandChapter 3

  • Chapter 3 begins with Jack alone on the island and ends with Simon alone.

  • Why? [What was the author’s purpose in this juxtaposition?]

October 7 11 2013

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. . .

  • Now let’s look over the passage devoted to Simon’s personal nature retreat from the break on p.55.

  • As we read, find FIVE appeals to the senses. (What literary technique is thus employed here?)

  • What overall MOOD is created by this scene?

  • What is revealed about Simon from this scene?

  • How is Simon’s version of the island different from Jack’s, though it is, of course, the same island?

  • What do you think accounts for these differences?

* Hobbes declared that primitive human life was "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short." * Hobbes felt that the "natural" state of man was akin to being beast-like. 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.

Thomas Hobbes—(1588-1679)

English philosopher.

October 7 11 2013

  • "Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains."

  • Locke declared that humans in early times were "noble savages."

  • That is, humans are naturally and innately good and it is “civilization" that turns man into a "beast." Locke argued that modern man should seek to restore the conditions of our lost Eden and live a more "natural" rather than "technological" life.

  • “Tabula Rasa” idea.

John Locke


Enlightenment Philosopher
