" 'And another thing. We can't have everybody talking at once. We'll have to 'Hands up' like in school.' He held the conch be fore his face and glanced around the mouth. 'Then i'll give him the conch.' 'Conch?' 'That'd what this shell's called. I'll give the conch to the next person to speak. He can hold it when he's speaking.' 'But--' 'look--' 'And he won't be interrupted. Except by me.' " (Golding 33)
I chose a picture of a conch because it has been all through the book. When they first landed there Piggy found the conch in the lagoon. Then when they we deciding on things they said that you can only speak if you have the conch. The conch then symbolized law and order. Throughout the novel they don't show as much respect as they did before. Then some kids just turn into savages and didn't follow the rules no more. At the end of the novel Jack and his tribe destroy the conch and there the law and order is gone... completely gone.
