Can you give me some feedback please!
A Lord of the flies is a political allegory of modern society. The society mimicked by the boys on the island is left in ruins by the savagery and evil within all human beings. However was this violence always present?
The boys were brought up with violence. Notably Ralph whose father is a commander in the army, Ralph "returned as a fighter plance (...) and machine gunned Piggy" subconsciously violence had been integrated into Ralph's life . As he "machine gunned Piggy" it reveals Ralph's ability to know how to inflict pain however is still too innocent to see it more than fun and games. Golding may be implying that constant conditioning of violence and war contributes to each human's innate evil.
However, Jack's hunters commit violence for the sake of human survival. This is a natural instinct and therefore is always present when faced with the prospect of danger. On the contrary the dance "kill the pig, cut her throat, bash her in" slowly reveals that violence becomes a motivator and desired outcome which in turn lacks social and moral value.
This isn't it, however since it all kind of follows this pattern...feedback so far would be greatly appreciated!
Violence is always present in ALOTF, to what extent to you agree?
