Lord of the Flies

1. How can you be sure that Jack is no longer playing a game? 2. Why is Piggy's death equated with the slaughter of the pigs? 3. Why do Ralph and Piggy decide to go to Jack's fort?

All from chapter 11

thanks in advance

and for #3 I was thinking to try to reason with Jack and get Piggy's glasses back, but I'm not completely sure.

1. Jack has set himself up as a King. Simon is dead and Jack is ready to kill Ralph.

2. Golding's description of Piggy's death is much like the slaughter of a pig, "His head opened and stuff came out and turned red. Piggy's arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig's after it has been killed."

3. They want to appeal to Jack in the name of civilization, they want to see if there is any "humanity" left in him.
