                   Lets get back to the game!!!!
Themes for 500
   Golding shows Jack’s inclination towards
    evil by having Jack behave differently
    during pig hunts through out the novel.
    How does Jack’s behavior change through
    out the work, and what does this change
    further imply?

              And the answer is…
Themes for 500
   What is…
       Initially, Jack is too afraid to kill a pig when he has a chance (he is still governed
        by civilization, order, rules, consequences and authority)
       Then, Jack paints his face and is able to kill a pig
        (Jack is allowing himself to drift towards his true evil desires)
       Jack eventually violently kills a mother sow, placing her head on a stick (Jack
        shows his true evil nature as well as his lack of insight in killing a sow)
       Jack eventually leads the others in the dance during Simon’s death (Jack’s
        impulsive behavior and inclination towards evil allow him to discretely take a
        human life)
       Jack encourages the others to hunt Ralph like a pig (Jack consciously
        encourages the others to take another human’s life)
       THE BIG PICTURE: The longer you are removed from order/authority, the
        more evil you become
                                     Lets get back to the game!!!!
