English Litterature 2
Cochabamba – Bolivia
2016
In the midst of a
wartime evacuation,
a British plane
crashes on or near
an isolated island in
a remote region of
the Pacific Ocean
The only survivors are
boys in their middle
childhood or
preadolescence. Two
boys—the fair-haired
Ralph and an overweight,
bespectacled boy
nicknamed "Piggy"—find
a conch, which Ralph uses
as a horn to call all the
survivors to one area.
Due largely to the fact that
Ralph appears responsible
for bringing all the
survivors together, he is
quickly elected their
"chief", though he does not
receive the votes of the
members of a boys' choir,
led by the red-headed Jack
Merridew.
Ralph asserts three primary
goals: to have fun, survive,
and to maintain a smoke
signal that could alert
passing ships to their
presence on the island. The
boys declare that whoever
holds the conch shall also be
able to speak at their formal
gatherings and receive the
attentive silence of the larger
group.
Jack organises his choir group
into a hunting party responsible
for discovering a food source.
Ralph, Jack, and a quiet, dreamy
boy named Simon soon form a
loose triumvirate of leaders.
Though he is Ralph's only
confidant, Piggy is quickly made
into an outcast by his fellow
"biguns" (older boys) and
becomes an unwilling source of
laughs for the other children
Simon, in addition to supervising
the project of constructing shelters,
feels an instinctive need to protect
the "littluns" (younger boys).
The semblance of order quickly
deteriorates as the majority of the
boys turn idle, giving little aid in
building shelters, and begin to
develop paranoias about the island,
referring to a supposed monster,
the "beast", which they believe to
exist on the island.
Simon, has a secret hideaway
where he goes to be alone.
One day while he is there,
Jack and his followers erect a
faux sacrifice to the beast
nearby: a severed pig's head,
mounted on a sharpened
stick, and soon swarming
with scavenging flies.
Simon conducts an
imaginary dialog with the
head, which he dubs the
"Lord of the Flies". The head
mocks Simon's notion that
the beast is a real entity,
"something you could hunt
and kill", and reveals the
truth: They, the boys, are the
beast; it is inside them all.
The Lord of the Flies also warns
Simon that he is in danger,
because he represents the soul
and spirit of man, and predicts
that the others will kill him. Sure
enough, during a ritual dance,
the frenzied boys mistake Simon
for the beast, attack him, and
beat him to death. Ralph, Piggy,
Sam, and Eric are overcome with
guilt for their participation in
the murder.
The following morning,
Jack orders his tribe to
begin a manhunt for
Ralph. Jack's savages set
fire to the forest while
Ralph desperately weighs
his options for survival.
Following a long chase,
most of the island is
consumed in flames.
. With the hunters closely behind him
Ralph trips and falls. He looks up at a
uniformed adult – a naval officer
whose party has landed from a
passing warship to investigate the
fire. Ralph bursts into tears over the
death of Piggy and the "end of
innocence". Jack and the other
children, filthy and unkempt, also
revert to their true ages and erupt
into sobs. The officer expresses his
disappointment at seeing British boys
exhibiting such feral, warlike
behavior; then turns to stare
awkwardly at his own warship.
THE END
