Name at least two things the boys are doing or have given up that show how they are now operating on instinct and no longer trying to follow the rules of society. Explain your answers with information from the text.
Some of the boys are going out at night and some are not traveling in two or more as they should be such as Simon who went out at night alone to go to a place he knew. Some of the other boys are not keeping clean or cleaning up after themselves for example when they designated a spot for them to use as lavatory many of them didn't use it and went wherever they wanted to go. Also many of the boys are not doing there jobs and are doing whatever they please for example when they had to build shelters there was only three one that they all built, the second one that only four people built and the last one that Simon and Ralph built.
Two rituals people are most familiar with are weddings and funerals. Pick an event (a wedding or a funeral). Make a list of at least 3 phrases people use at the event you picked. Using one of your phrases, explain why your phrase is helpful in the situation.
- "You may now kiss the bride"
- "Does anyone object or have any reason to why these two should not be married"
- "Do you take this man/women to be your lawfully wedded wife or husband" or "I do" that usually follows.
Rituals are ceremony's held to celebrate or morn a significant event. Weddings are a ritual that most people are familiar with and they have many phrases commonly used throughout all or many ceremony's. A wedding occurs when there are two or in some cases more than two people who decide to promise to each other to love one another or have another reason to wed. One phrase that is commonly used is do you take this man or women to be your lawfully wedded husband or wife, this phrase is very helpful. This is one of the most important phrases in the ceremony because of how much could be affected by it. When they ask this "I do" is what usually is supposed to be followed by it but in some cases it isn't. Its very helpful because it gives the person a chance to keep going and promise themselves to one another or to not go through with it because off any reason they may have. There are many phrases that could also so do this such as does any one object or have any reason these two should not be married. This is also a interjection but isn't as important because it comes from a guest or someone who is witnessing the wedding not from the actual bride or groom who's reason could be greater than any other. This or the "I do" that should come after it are the most important phrases used in this ritual.
Choose a character, either Ralph or Jack and explain the effect seeing the Beast has on the character you have chosen. Use textual information to support your answer.
There are many different events that occur in the story to help propel it further, to keep the reader entertained, and show how characters can be affected by them. In "Lord f the Flies" By William Golding Jack and Ralph both go up to the mountain and see what they think is the beast. Ralph is affected differently then Jack, Ralph is more terrified. He is scared to go up the mountain or to go into the forest to get wood for the fire they're making near the platform. Ralph doesn't want to go up the mountain to see the beast because he doesn't think that they could take on the beast. "What about my hunters?""Boys armed with sticks (Golding 125)". Jack and Ralph's reaction to seeing the beast shows how the two characters differ when exposed to a terrifying situation. The terrifying situation shows how the character was affected and shows how this event could have an impact on how the rest of the story will transpire.
