1Human should understand the importance of self-discovery. In
the Lord of the Flies,
Ralph, Simon and Samneric learned the weaknesses and darkness
within the human hearts. People grows up when they faces a
challenge. Ralph s challenge is how to be a good and responsible
leader. Simon's challenge is how to speak at front of people.
Samneric's challenge is how to make right choice. The truth about
self-discovery may be cruel, but it is worth to learn from it.
2Ralph is being a playful, innocent child in the beginning of the
story, but towards the end he matures significantly. Excluding
Piggy, Ralph is the most mature and responsible member of the
boys, for he is concerned throughout the book with keeping the
fire on the mountain going, and building shelter. " 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,37
Ralph always has the strong belief that all the children will be
saved from the island sooner or later, but at middle part of the story
he begins to doubting it. At end of the story, after the death of
Piggy, Ralph's encounter with the Lord of the Flies, he knocks
over the pig's skull. " A sick fear and rage swept him. Fiercely he
hit out at the filthy thing in front of him that bobbed like a toy and
came back, still grinning into his face, so that he lashed and cried
out in loathing." pg206 Ralph realize the evil is part of him and
just as to other boys. However, he is the only person who
acknowledges the importance of being responsible, and he takes
over as a true leader even though he is not necessarily good at it.
