"I know people. I know about me. And him." (101) Piggy says this to Ralph when explaining why Jack hates him.
I need to analyze this quotation. Find the bigger meaning to it, and write a thesis. Any suggestions?
So far I've thought that by people, Piggy means general society. And since he represents morality and civilized living, he means he knows about that. And then Jack represents anarchy, and since Jack is the opposite of Piggy (think about it, in almost every way) Piggy would know about him, too.
He also previously mentioned something about "if you're scared of someone, you can't stop thinking about them. You kid yourself he's alright, and then you see him and it's like asthma and you can't breathe."
So maybe Piggy is scared of Jack. Which is why he spends a lot of time thinking about him, and that's why he claims to "know" him.
I don't know. Thought?
