Lord of the Flies Final Test Review
Main Characters • Ralph: • Jack: • Simon: • Piggy: • Roger: • leader of society/civilization • savage, hunter, rules with scare tactics • deep thinker, kind to all, sensitive • logical, smart, (how does he die??) • evil, satanic
Major Symbols • order, democracy, authority, ability to speak • Conch: • Fire: • Face Paint: • Scar: • hope, desire to be rescued • savagery, inner evil/savage within boys, mask to hide behind • destruction-where plane crashed
Plot questions to consider/discuss • Why is Ralph chosen as the leader of the tribe? • Who has the least respect for the conch? • Identify the littlun with the mulberry birth mark. • What is the difference between Ralph’s response and Jack’s response when the boys first talk of a beastie? What is the difference in their approach to treating the littluns? • Who is the character the realizes that the “beast” is really the evil within the boys?
Major Themes • Man is inherently evil: • Think about how the fear within the boys starts to take over • Think about how most of the boys begin to act like savages • Problems in society attributed to problems in people: • Think about the problems they encounter (conflict) • How are the “people problems” similar to the “society problems”
Major Themes Cont. • Power of fear, especially the unknown • Who/What are the boys scared of • What does this make them become? • Civilization vs. Savagery • Identify the two sides
Characterization • Be able to read a quote/passage and understand what is being revealed about a character. 1. What does the following quote reveal about Jack? "I've got the conch. Ralph thinks you’re cowards, running away from the boar and the beast. And that's not all." pg 126 2. Read the following quote: "We got no fire on the mountain. But what's wrong with a fire down here? A fire could be built on them rocks. On the sand, even. We'd make smoke just the same." • In this quote, how is Piggy indirectly characterized?
Characterization • Direct: specifically tells the reader the qualities of a character. • “fair hair” = Ralph is blond. • Indirect: clues as to who the person is based on how he acts or what others say about him • “Shut up, Fatty!” = Jack is bossy/mean Hint: Use what you already know about the character to help you choose a logical answer
Identify Figurative LanguageSimile, Metaphor, Personification • “The squirrel leapt on the wings of the wind and clung to another standing tree, eating downwards.” • “The beach between the palm terrace and the water was a thin stick.” • “The sandy edge of the pool loomed up like a hillside.” *Be prepared to explain why figurative language is used-think beyond the image
