LORD OF THE FLIESMy report is about the very well known book Lord of the flies, by WilliamGolding. There are many characters in this book, but the most important ones are Ralph,Jack, Simon, Piggy, and Roger. When I read this book I discovered a great change inmost of their personalities, especially Jack’s. So I would say that they are all dynamiccharacters.
Ralph, in the beginning of the novel, had a boyish personality. Then later onin the novel, he became much more mature due to the fact that all of them had to live in amore civilized manner to get a long and to survive while waiting to be rescued. Jack, inthe beginning of the novel was Ralph’s most powerful antagonist. Then later on turnedagainst Ralph and becomes leader.
Simon is a unique character in the novel. He remainslargely uninvolved with any of the power struggles between Ralph and Jack. He waskilled. Roger is very mean. He killed Piggy by pushing a big bolder on top of him.Order now
Piggywas the intellectual in the group. He complained a lot in the beginning, but later onbecame more mature. But, unfortunately, he was killed by Roger. The novel begins about a group of English people who are marooned on a tropicalisland when the plane evacuating them from atomic war-torn England crashes.
So nowthis group of boys are alone on this island. Then Ralph called an assembly to talk to theother guys about making a plan to get along and survive. The struggle starts in trying tomake rules for the group to live by. There were many more conflicts through out thenovel. But the main conflict is the boys trying to get along with each other and survivewhile waiting to be rescued from a deserted island.
There are also some major conflictsbetween Ralph and Jack over trying to be the leader of the group. I enjoyed this book because it showed me what can happen when people are put ina desperate situation where there are no rules or social structure and how differentpersonalities react to this lack of order. It also showed me how much one person canmake a difference.Book Reports
