slide5

“Every path was an improvisation”- Ralph feels that is making things up as he goes along

  • “The trouble was, if you were chief, you have to be wise.” Ralph realizes he is not smart enough to lead the boys.
  • He looks to Piggy for guidance
  • Sweeping reforms in the meeting- fire stays on the mountain, no more using the restroom where we eat and sleep, no more worrying about the beast
slide6

Piggy claims

    • “Life is scientific.”
    • “There isn’t no fear. Unless, we get frightened of people.”
    • Questions the littluns on their fear of the beast
  • Simon admits to be the figure in the forest of the littlun’s dream
  • Percival, a littlun, attempts to explain the beast and erupts into tears instead.
  • To quell the commotion, Jack speaks out of turn to Percival
  • Percival claims the beast comes out of the sea.
slide7

The fear of the sea is the fact that it is unexplored

  • Simon makes the claim that the beast “is only us.”
  • Ralph meeting breaks down, with talks of ghosts and Jack’s cussing
  • “that understandable and lawful was slipping away.”
the breakup
The Breakup
  • Jack breaks the rules of the conch and the organization of the meeting
  • Claims Ralph is weak because he cannot hunt
  • Claims that Ralph being chosen as a leader does not make a difference when he cannot hunt- does not have the physical power to hold the rule
  • Jack breaks away from the meeting, leaving it in anarchy
  • Piggy begs Ralph to call them back, “What’s the grownups going to say?”
  • “If I blow the conch and they don’t come back; then we’ve had it.”
the fallout
The Fallout
  • Only Ralph, Piggy, and Simon remain- The leader, the intellectual, the spiritual guide
  • Ralph feels like giving up his leadership role
  • Ralph starts fearing ghosts; Piggy claims there are no ghosts because “things make sense.”
  • Piggy recognizes that Jack hates himself and Ralph
  • “He can’t hurt you (Ralph), but if you step out of the way, he’d hurt the next thing. And that’s me.”
ralph s revelation
Ralph’s Revelation
  • Ralph realizes he is not intelligent enough to lead on his own.
  • “discovered dirt and decay…disliked perpetually flipping the tangled hair.”
  • Long, tangled hair is associated with the slide into savagery
  • “I’ve been alone. By myself I went, thinking what’s what.”
  • After this statement he gives the group the rules they are to live by.
  • “You voted me for chief. Now do what I say.” (81)
dionysian influence
Dionysian Influence
  • What is unique about their meeting? (p 90)
  • Notice how the instinct to disobey and chant has increased.
  • Difficult to keep the meeting serious
vs jack
Vs. Jack
  • “Am I a hunter or am I not?” – masculine dominance ignoring the opinion of the group
  • Sign of military dominance over governmental process.
  • “You can’t hunt.” “Why should choosing make any difference?”
the conch
The Conch
  • What is implied by the fact that the conch has faded from pink to white?
forgetting the littluns
Forgetting the Littluns
  • Page 86. Why do they voluntarily forget the littluns?
the beast
THE BEAST
  • Piggy claims
    • “Life is scientific.”
    • “There isn’t no fear. Unless, we get frightened of people.”
    • “Life is scientific, but we don’t know, do we?”
  • Simon claims that maybe the beast “is us.”
  • His oration is ruined by Jack’s vulgarity
  • Everyone laughs at him for the comment- no one wants to believe they are the source of evil.
the triumvirate
The Triumvirate
  • When the meeting disperses only three are left:
    • Ralph the symbol of leadership
    • Piggy the symbol of higher reasoning
    • Simon the spiritual leader of the group
adult life
Adult Life
  • The three boys discuss how organized, sensible, and peaceful adult life is.
