Lord of the Flies Response

Ben Sherry Civilization 9/10/96

There were a lot of underlying reasons to why the boys’ civilization failed in

the book The Lord of The Flies. They had many problems with each other because

the group was split up among friends. One group would go out and do one thing,

while the other group would do another. This led to many more problems, such as

deciding and agreeing on a leader, who would do what jobs, and most importantly,

which of the boys would become the leader of the crew. Futhermore, the boys all

seem to dislike Jack and Roger. This will make it extremely hard for either of

them to stop singing. Like my father. So, that eliminates them from the picture.

Simon and Rex don’t seem to be helping much, and

When all the boys met each other on the island, they all had their own separate

friends. The choir boys stuck together, the littluns stuck together, Sam and

Eric stuck together, and Piggy and Ralph stayed close by each other. Unless

everyone can work together as a team, everyone will begin fighting. This is

exactly what happened. When they decided on a leader (Ralph) Jack hated it. He

wanted to be leader and thought he was the best for the job. Already he had

started to rebel. He wouldn’t do what Ralph said, and tried to get everyone to

disobey him. If the boys do not work together on anything, it’s never going to

work. While Jack and others were rebelling, Ralph was trying his best to keep

the island together.

One example of how not working together hurt their the civilization severely was,

when they were building the shelters. Everyone was supposed to help, but only

two people (Ralph and Simon) could honestly say they helped build all the houses.

The first house looked great with everyone helping to make it. The second

house looked okay but some people forgot about their jobs and wandered off. But

the third house was no more than a horrible shack considering only two people

worked on it. These were the kind of things that killed the boys’ civilization.

Later on in the novel, Jack put his rebellion into full force. He got everyone

except Simon, Ralph, and Piggy to join his group which lived elsewhere on the

island. By the end, Jack’s gang had turned savage, and Ralph was the only one

left to defend against them. Luckily he didn’t die, but he came pretty close to


Working together benefits everyone; working separately accomplishes little. If

the boys had been able to agree on a leader and establish order, their

civilization would have prospered. This however was not the case, and their

civilization failed. Lack od discipline can mean a lot to a bunch of young boys

starting a civilization. Iknow I woul;d have plenty of trooble doing it
