Castle Rock as a Symbol

Castle Rock is a small rocky outcrop which is connected to the 'pointed end' of the main island. When Jack leaves the group and forms his own 'group' he chooses Castle Rock as his headquarters.

Castle Rock symbolizes hell on earth, where jack and his group can get away from Ralph’s authority. The island stands for a world with no rules, no adult figures and a serious lack of authority. On this island,there are good,smart and intelligent people, such as Ralph, Piggy, and Simon, and then there are corrupted people such as Jack and his group of hunters. Castle Rock serves as the villains, or Jack's and his hunter’s hideout where they have the ability to do what ever they want.

Castle Rock gives Jack and his choir a place to differ from the more civilized people. Castle rock serves a 1. heavily fortified residence 2. a safe, secure place or refuge. The fortified residence, that provided a firm support and refuge for Jack and his group. Castle Rock represents a villains' hideout, where they can get away from the more civilized society, and live without rules. It represent the place and gathering of evil.

Castle Rock provided a place for Jack and his choir to get away from Ralph's rule and Piggy's attempts to make a sound society on the island. It combines the fortified residence of a castle, It is the savage hideout of Jack along with the other evils.



please tell me if im on the right track and if u can help me anwser some of these questions please

That sounds good. I think in a general sense, you hold outline what Hell is within the thematic context of the novel. As the boys move towards chaos they also move towards a state of self destruction. Hell becomes a place where the "weak" and sympathetic are punished and the "strong" and ruthless are rewarded. One of my favourite lines comes earlier on in the book when Piggy is watching the boys dance around the giant fire, "Piggy glanced nervously into hell and cradled the conch." For a guy like Piggy and, to a lesser extent Ralph, this is literally and symbolically Hell. It is a place where disorder and destruction rule. You might also want to work in the Pig's head on the stick "The Lord of the Flies" (Beelzebub) and Simon, Golding's Christ figure, arriving at the top of the mountain and having his point of enlightenment.

Please let me know on this thread should yo have any more questions.

and one more thing thanks so much ur being great! but i need to make a physical create a symbol for hell/ or casstle rock can u give me some suggestions please!

There is always the pig's head on the stick. "Lord of the Flies" translated means the Devil of sorts. Certainly when Jack lights the whole island on fire is a literal and symbolic representation of Hell. So, if you had to make something , you might create a diorama of the island on fire. Kind of like cardboard throw some glue and sand on, make some paper palm trees and draw paper flames around the whole thing. You could do something depicting Simon as a Christ being killed. Although he wasn't Christ, Golding certainly meant for him to represent him in the novel. Hope that helps a little.

and can u tell me how i would go about mentioning the

lord of the flies (pigs hea don a stick) could i say in conclusion Castle rock is hell and the lord of the flies(beezlebub=devil) is satan

and i got to make it by tomorrow :S

Hey, the Pigs head on the stick is only the physical manifestation of evil. As Simon always has seemed to have known, the Beast, evil. Beelzebub or whatever one wishes to call it exists within the boys themselves. They are the source of evil which bring about their own demise. Hey, come to think of it, a simple drawing of a nondescript human body might be the symbol for evil you are looking for. This would be Simon's and Golding's interpretation of the Devil. The Devil or whatever he is resides in the "darkness of man's heart."

i also gotta do an essay from the transition from good to evil in the entire lord of the flies novel can ya help me out im stuck

Lord of the Flies Essay

The Transition from Good to Evil

By Sheshan Jayasinha

The experiences the boys go through while trying to survive on the island lead them to the evil that lies beneath their civilized surface. The experiences not only affect them physically but even mentally to the point where they begin to lose their own identities and their civilized behaviour. In the novel "Lord of The Flies" you see a drastic change from good to evil within the boys. Jack and his group of hunters never take a moment to think or reflect about getting off the island. Ralph on the other hand only thinks about the well being of the group, their safety, being rescued, and organization. The main antagonist Jack wants to hunt, so do all the other children except for a select few Piggy, Simon and the twins Sam and Eric who are either killed or tortured to give into and follow Jack’s every order. This novel displays a huge amount of disobedience and extremely poor human nature mostly because it features ignorant kids who have no adult figures on the island and clearly have a lot to learn.

Almost all of the symbols and devices William Golding uses throughout the book portray the transition from good to evil from within the children. Golding uses “Lord of the Flies” as the title of the novel because the Lord of the Flies symbolizes the inner evil within the children, which is the central idea of the novel. Golding shows that the children are not provoked by society but the inner evil within themselves causes them to act in such a vicious way.

“Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Bash her in.” These quotes express the increasing intensity of the boy’s savagery. They boys have reached this drastic level of savagery that just hunting a pig for a significant food source turned into a crazy spiritual offering to the “beast” on the island. Even after the boys killed Simon while the other boys were in a trance during there feast and mistook Simon for the beast. They still ignored what they have done, especially Piggy and Ralph who are trying to convince themselves that it wasn’t their fault. “It was dark. there was that -- that bloody dance. There was lightning and thunder and rain. We was scared!”

“I ought to be chief,’ said Jack with simple arrogance, ‘because I’m chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp.” This is where we tend to notice the increasing tension between Ralph and Jack that eventually ignites the events to come throughout the book. Jack clearly transformed the most among the boys into a crazy uncivilized savage.

In conclusion, evilness will always be apart of our civilization, in most cases they will be a larger quantity in some of us, However the power is left to us to decide whether we will live our lives the civilized way or transform into savages just as the boys did in “The Lord of the Flies”.
