Lord of the Flies by darknight0x0 Lord of the Flies by darknight0x0
its all of the characters from Lord of the Flies
from left to right, top: Roger (cruelty), Simon (kindness), Piggy (knowledge) and Samneric (insignificance)
the one with the red hair and spear is Jack (corruption), and the one with the blond hair to the right of him and with the conch is Ralph (morality). The Lord of the Flies is in the middle (Truth/evil). The silhoette in the background is the island, adn there are supposed to be evil eyes in front of it...the little dottish things everywhere are sposed to be flies. annnnd, im pretty sure thats about it. :D

I'm sorry for not asking before using it, but I used your image in my video www.youtube.com/watch?v=51r--4…
I gave you credit in the video and the description though, and linked back to your picture

We're doing this in english too~ It's pretty good.
I just finished chapter 10 e.e
The way we put Ralph and Jack was Civilization and Savagery. And like.. We discuss every chapter and then do it based on symbolism ~ It's pretty cool

I always viewed Samneric as symbolism for companionship. They always stuck together and stuck with Ralph for the majority of the book didn't they?

Why did you say Sam n Eric were insignificance...?
They were the epitome of loyalty. Their purpose was to show the corruption by human nature (as was the point of Simon and Piggy also).

Supporting Golding's view on corruption using their loyalty as the main focus.
Seeing as their loyalty to Ralph was broken.. But under force and human nature/corruption... But also how it wasn't completely broken...
(I'm a long-winded person)

What papers did you do on Simon?

i never actually did a paper just on simon, but i used him as my argument that humans are doomed to innate darkness (cuz he gets killed and all) ur paper sounds interesting btw

the fact that they call them 'samneric' instead of treating them as two separate people, 'sam and eric' pretty much signifies insignificance C:
