1. Pigs head says this to Simon. It is an extension of his own fear and uncertainty.

2. Again Pig's head on a Stick. It's really Simon's own fears trying to destroy him.


3. Pig's head on stick telling Simon (Golding's Christ figure) to stop trying to save the boys.

For the first quote, I thought Jack said that into the conch? I'm confused once again. And, I need it in MLA format, meaning "INSERT QUOTE"(Author's last name, page number)

Sorry, you are right. I'm not thinking. Jack is once again linking Ralph with Piggy to make him look weak.

Here is an example of MLA

Golding, William. Lord of the Flies. New York: Harcourt, 1938. 35-36 Print.

I don't have a copy in front of me but different editions vary. The above is an example. I'll also list a good site for MLA below.

My teacher taught us a different way to do MLA like I told you before.

Take a look at the web site I gave you. That's basically it! I'm not sure what your teacher provided you with but if that is what he or she wants, do it that way.

1) Page 181

2) Page 206

3) I can't find the third quote in Chapter 8, but that doesn't mean it's not there. You can go online for the complete text. I'm citing it for you below; sorry, my eyes are done for the day..........
