Things to Notice…


Things to notice1

  • 5. Ralph’s inner conflict: jealous of wild excitement of hunters; resentful of their irresponsibility; tries to control situation by calling a meeting, but there is little response to him or his rational plan

  • 6. FORESHADOWING: Ralph Walking Alone Down The Hill. This foreshadows the isolation he will feel throughout the rest of the novel.

Symbolism

Symbolism…


Parallelism

  • Jack hunts and kills the pigs; broken his glasses. Piggy, symbol of rules and justice, is partially handicapped. Jack is breaking down the rules of civilization on the island.littlun Henry plays “hunt and control” with the sea creatures (61).

Parallelism…


Characterization

  • Roger. His malicious nature is demonstrated when he taunts Henry. He throws stones at him, but misses him. There is something inherently evil in the way he teases Henry. The author suggests that EVIL is present even in Henry, who torments the organisms in the pool—and perhaps WE all have something evil in US that will surface under the right circumstances.
