3 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 Chapter Nine summary

4 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 In Chapter Nine the weather on the island changes suddenly. Select four quotes which trace the build-up of the storm. Over the island the build-up of clouds continued. All at once the thunder struck. The dark sky was shattered by a blue-white scar. Then the clouds opened and let down the rain like a waterfall. What is the significance of the storm? What might it symbolize? The storm

5 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 Simon is savagely killed as he tries to tell the others the truth about the ‘beast’ The nature of his death has religious overtones. Simon is portrayed as a truly good character in the novel, and before his death we see him undertake a final act of kindness in Chapter Nine. What does he do? In what other ways has Simon shown his ‘goodness’ throughout the novel? Can you identify what Simon’s death could symbolize? Simon

6 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 Chapter Ten summary

7 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 The boys must deal with the terrible reality of Simon’s death. Look at the responses of Ralph, Piggy and the twins. Reaction to Simon’s death ‘“It was murder… I’m frightened of us.”’ What are their true feelings about the event? What do their reactions tell us about them? We are not told of Jack’s reaction, but what do you think it would have been? ‘Sam touched a scratch on his forehead and then hurriedly took his hand away. Eric fingered his split lip.’ ‘“It was an accident… He was batty. He asked for it.”’

9 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 Imagine if Jack tried to get more people to join his tribe and launched a political campaign to attract new members. What do you think he would say in his campaign speech? You are going to write it! why you are such a good leader what you can offer to all members of your tribe why your tribe is better than Ralph’s group a summary of your ‘rules’ and values. Remember this is a speech so you will need to make your writing as persuasive as you can! Think about what is important to Jack, and his approach to leadership. You might like to include in the speech: Speech

10 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 Chapter Eleven summary

11 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 In Chapter Eleven we see a much braver Piggy than we saw at the beginning of the novel. Without his glasses he is very vulnerable yet he insists on going to Castle Rock with Ralph. Why do you think he does this? At Castle Rock Piggy speaks out for civilized behaviour, just before he is killed by Roger. Which is better – to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill? Piggy’s death

12 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 How did you feel when you read about Piggy’s death? How do you think Golding wanted you to feel? Think back to Chapter Four. Was Piggy’s death foreshadowed? When Piggy is killed, the conch, which he is holding, is also destroyed. What is the significance of Piggy’s death and the shattering of the conch? Piggy’s death

13 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 Chapter Twelve summary

14 © Boardworks Ltd of 24 When Ralph is rescued at the end of the novel, he breaks down and weeps for: ‘the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart.’ Think of an alternative ending for Lord of the Flies and write down your ideas. Once you have a plan, have a go at rewriting the final chapter. Imagine if Golding had added an extra chapter where Ralph and Jack share their story with the naval officer as they travel home. How might this go? Write a script of the conversation between the officer and the boys. Are you satisfied with the way the novel ends? What does Golding mean by this? The ending
