Piggy is taken aback by the frenzied building of the fire. Piggy knows the size of the fire is not logical, “You got your small fire all right. ”The inferno represents chaos to Piggy. Piggy attempts to tell the boys that they will destroy the island if they are not careful.

But the first time Ralph says ‘fire’ you goes howling and screaming up this here mountain. Like a pack of kids!”Then when you get here you build a bonfire that isn’t no use. Now you been and set the whole island on fire. Won’t we look funny if the whole island burns up? Cooked fruit, that’s what we’ll have to eat, and roast pork. And that’s nothing to laugh at! ch 2
