The novel “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding is about a group of boys who are stranded on an Island after their plane was shot down. Together, the boys worked and came up with ideas that would make their lives on the island suitable and help them get rescued.
Ralph, the main character of the story, is a strong minded 12 year old who led the group on their Arduous adventure.Because of Ralph’s refined and successful ways, he influenced the boys greatly and got them tothink of ways that would amplify their chances of becoming rescued.
For Example in the novel it says, “Ralph wavedthe conch”. “Shut up! Wait! Listen! He went on borne on his triumph”.”There’s another thing.We can help them to find us.If a ship comes near the island, they may not notice us.So we must make smoke on top of the mountain.
We must make a fire.” (Pg 38).Ralph wanted to be rescued, but he also knew that the boys with him were doubtful.He kept them focused by reassuring them.”Roger took the conch and looked round at them gloomily. I’ve been watching the sea.There hasn’t been the trace of a ship.perhaps we’ll never be rescued”. Ralph replied by saying “I said Before We’ll be rescued sometime.We’ve just got too wait, thats all.” (Pg 43).
There isn’t really a difference between my personality and Ralph, the main character’s personality.Throughout the book, Ralph showed great leadership skills while dealing with the frustration within his surrounding environment.For example, “And another thing.We nearly set the whole island on fire.And we waste time, rolling rocks, and making little cooking fires.Now I say this and make it a rule, because I’m chief.We won’t have a fire anywhere but on the Mountain”.”Ever”. (Pg 81).I am not much different from Ralph because I also play leadership roles.And I am still able to stay focus even when I’m placed In difficult situations, like he was.
