”Lord of the Flies” by William Golding

Roger feels power in the harm and fear of others, he truly is savage.Roger turns from evil into pure sadistic once he is on the island because there is no one to enforce the morals of right and wrong, or o punish him when he has gone against a moral.This shows that Roger was once at least partly civilized when there were laws, and grown adults to stop him.Ralph, when he is being hunted by the other tribe that wants to kill him, he is more afraid of Roger, the one who increases fear in people and tortures them so that they will obey, than he is of Jack, the chief of Roger and his tribe.But now, on this island, there are none of these and Roger can take control of whatever he pleases because it’s what makes him feel good.

When Roger was a part of the civilized tribe, he conditioned his arm to shoot and miss “Yet there was a space round Henry, perhaps six yards in diameter, into which he [Roger] dare not throw.” (Golding, 199) By Piggy saying this, it got Roger upset, because he had critized his chief and their tribe.First, there is an attempt of killing a pig which drives Jack to hunt again “You cut a pig’s throat to let the blood out,” said Jack, “otherwise you can’t eat the meat.” For no apparent reason, Jack wanted to torture Wilfred, maybe to reassert himself as chief and gain more followers.This is also an example of their want to hunt and kill, and in order to be rid of order and civilization Jack had to kill Ralph, but he had not succeed.

As the island descends into savagery Roger not only joins in but also becomes as powerful as Jack “wielding a nameless authority.” Of course as Simon is the representation of good he is destroyed by evil.Roger as the representation of evil not only helps to destroy Simon, but also murders Piggy.Simon and Roger represent two ends of a scale in the book.To start with he is tempted by Jack and hunting, “Ralph watched them [the hunters] envious and resentful.” And this is reflected in the way he treats Piggy; at the beginning he mocks him and does not take him seriously, “”Piggy!” Ralph shrieked with laughter,” by the end he is to Ralph “the true, wise friend called Piggy.” Golding has shown a drifting scale through the book at the beginning...

”Lord of the Flies” by William Golding

He does this for self-preservation, whereas Jack and Roger both enjoy manipulation, through torture.“Satan’s signature” seemed to be upon his face, and he was described as “particularly wicked-looking.” Hyde speaks little, like Roger (who does not voice his thoughts at assemblies, even thought the most inarticulate, like Simon and Percival Wemys Madison attempt to), but when he does speak, he does not restrain himself, in the same way as Jack does not when he is angry.The physical similarity to Roger is not great, it is only that both are small, Roger being describes as “slight” and Jekyll describes his alter ego as “younger, lighter..In Lord of the Flies, evil incidents usually involve groups of boys, except for the killing of Piggy by ...

Using the reason that the purpose of Lord of the Flies is to help us understand why humans fight wars we see that he shows what can happen when bullies such as Jack and Roger, showing that it people like Simon suffer, just like the Jews in WWII.Another recreation of a parable is when Jack hits Piggy over the head and his glasses fly off, making him blind.Simon is also used to show how dreadful Jack is with his bullying of the others, especially with Piggy.Simon is very different from the other boys; his name is the only one that comes from the bible and this is portrayed throughout the story from acting as a Christ-like figure.Simon is loyal and stands by Ralph and Piggy to the very end, he always tries to encourage them to stay on and t...
