The book portrays their descent into savagery; left to themselves on a paradisiacal island, far from modern civilization, the well-educated children regress to a primitive state. During one of our discussions about leadership in Lord of the flies, we distinguished the major strengths and weaknesses of each main character, Ralph, Jack and Piggy. His main focus throughout the book is getting rescued and he puts much emphasis on this. The were chest to chest, breathing fiercely, pushing and glaring. Ralph has a far greater focus on the boys' common goal: escape. Before the Lord of the Flies speaks to Simon, Jack leaves the tribe with some other boys to start their… some rules we have in the world are unnecessary. It is possible that being a fair leader is not synonymous with being a good leader.
In William Golding's… What do you think of Ralph and the way he is presented? Roger and Maurice and Robert and Bill and Piggy and Ralph. However, Jack is missing that key characteristic that made Ralph so appealing: the symbol of power and strength. But the boys still voted Ralph as their chief. The boys could have easily chosen Jack instead of Ralph, especially given the fact that Jack had previous experience as a leader; he is first seen surrounded by a group of faithful followers, his choir group, that continue to obey him on the island. Napoleon, in Animal Farm, is a large, rather fierce looking Berkshire boar.
Leadership plays a very important role in the novel as it does in real life because the characters need to feel some sense of security in order for them to survive. In 2003 it was listed at number 70 on the 's poll, and in 2005 magazine named it as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. William Golding's Lord of the Flies, is about a group of boys stranded on an island and vying for power. The power drives him crazy and starts to beat on kids on the island for no apparent reason, it even escalades to killing them. While Jack considers the boys inferior to himself, Ralph treats the boys as equals. But I tell you smoke is more important than the pig, however often. He synthesizes and applies 's intellectualism, and he recognizes the false fears and superstitions as barriers to their survival.
Jack is undeniably a cruel leader, but that doesn't mean he was a bad one. The existence of mankind on earth relies on various factors. In Lord of the Flies there were many various leadership qualities exhibited by the boys, but how can one decide on a leader out of so many boys that would make the society work? Jack demonstrates his growing desire for power over the others as he begins establishing an authoritarian system focused on hunting and barbarity. If a ship comes near the island, they may not notice us. But then there are others that are too ignorant and become less and less what they had hoped to be. Ralph's earlier life had been civilized, and he brought to the island innocent expectations and confidence until certain experiences informed his naiveté and destroyed his innocence.
In the Lord Of The Flies Piggy is bullied often by the Antagonist Jack. The basic needs for us humans to survive are food, water, shelter etc. In addition, Ralph is very hard working, once he knows what needs to be done he will work very hard to accomplish that task. Ralph represents leadership, the properly socialized and civilized young man. After reading about the Heritage Valley Medical Center, I was shocked as to how there could be such people in charge of various parts in such an organization that has had a proud reputation for providing quality services for all citizens in the community. With the hunters closely behind him, Ralph trips and falls. Ralph displays these useful human qualities as a leader by working towards the betterment of the boys' society.
In the earlier parts of the novel, Ralph is unable to understand why the other boys would give in to base instincts of bloodlust and barbarism. Lord of the Flies is interpreted many different ways depending on how the reader sees it. Jack's society eventually leads to corruption, killing innocent people, while Ralph's prevails as the boys are rescued. He understands the essentials that a society must have to keep afloat and he knows what must be done in order for the survival of the boys. Then the wind blew again and the figure lifted, bowed, and breathed foully at him. He holds a government is which all people take action in political activities; before any decision is made Ralph gives all the boys a chance to give their opinions and be part of the decision-making.
In the beginning of the book Ralph also knew that building huts should have been the priority over hunting. Only the law and order of our society hold back the flaws that all humans inherently possess. Jack is against most of Ralph's policies, and does not like the idea of being rescued from the island. After the scare of the beast, it is also Piggy who comes up with the idea of moving the signal fire onto the beach. Ralph wants what is best for the island and makes sure to get it in a diplomatic way. Authors, including Golding, often show how humans select the strongest person, to give us an understanding of the influence people can possess over others.
Ralph and Jack engage in a fight which neither wins before Piggy tries once more to address the tribe. The two main leaders in the story, through their similar and different leadership characteristics and objectives fight back and forth to gain the discipline of the other boys on the island. Even though Jack had the wrong intentions, the boys follow him and they do exactly what he wants. The Second World War, which Golding was a part of, brought about his pessimism of human nature. What positive leadership qualities does Ralph possess? Upon inspection of the island, the three determine that it has fruit and for food. Another example is paraphrasing the text in my own words from the chapter 2 close reading of Lord of the Flies. Ralph treats all the boys with dignity and tries to work with them for the betterment of the society.
