The theme I have chosen is an obvious one. The age old saying " Absolute power corrupts absolutely". This is especially true in both LoTF and Animal Farm. Jack, who assumes power over the choir boys, is still unsatisfied and so he craves more power. So he begins the Hunt, the hunt allows for Jack to be in total control. However this still is not enough for him. Jack soon uses what power he has to slowly chip away at Ralph. He does this by leaving a meeting early, punching Piggy and stealing the glasses. The final turn of power is the death of Simon. The entire group shows loyalty to Jack after this. In Napoleon's case, he starts by carrying Old Major's torch. The pigs together hold power over the farm due to their brains. Soon though, Napoleon becomes "drunk with power" and uses it to become a human. He drinks the milk, he sleeps in the beds, he trades with Mr. Whymper, and changes the rules to benefit the pigs. The power each of these charachers gain, draws them to more power, as their power grows so does their thirst for power. This is a corner stone of each book.
