There were similarities between these two readings, almost like Lord of the Flies is a biblical allegory to Paradise Lost.
This firsthand knowledge of the evil that exists within him, as within all human beings, is tragic for Ralph, and it plunges him into listless despair for a time.
This scene is interesting because it shows Ralph is starting to feel exhausted from being the only authority figure and he is getting frazzled at trying to get so many boys to conform to rules that will ultimately save them.
Another major character, Simon, is a deeply good individual, who performs many acts of thoughtfulness and kindness.
There is increasing obvious rivalry between Ralph and Jack and it is significant that Jack is more successful as a leader because he can persuade the boys and they believe that he is better able to protect them.
Ralph is a compelling character because he is the one who fights to keep civility alive amongst the boys and tries to stop them becoming savages.

Yet Ralph makes real mistakes. Though he started as a sensible boy who thought the best of people, he now realises that all people are flawed. We can track how he does this throughout the novel.
It forces him to totally accept the fallen nature of all mankind.
With reference to the text show how the writer made the character interesting. He is the boy who pushes the boulder that kills Piggy.
