Order, knowledge, civilization, weakness and of course fire.

Consider Piggy himself. The glasses become an extension of what Piggy represents. Piggy clings to the idea of order, civilization, scientific knowledge....His glasses also isolate Piggy in these contexts as well as his physical inferiority.
