Re-read the final paragraph of chapter 11. Write an analysis of the importance of those three sentences.
What is the significance of Jack’s theft of Piggy’s glasses? Consider the implications for Piggy himself, for Ralph’s tribe, and for Jack’s tribe.
On page 159, Roger and Robert agree that Jack is “a proper chief, isn’t he?” What, specifically, makes him a “proper chief” in their minds? What does it say about the devolution of human nature?
Ralph begins chapter 10 both physically and emotionally battered. He says to Piggy on page 157, “I’m frightened. Of us.” Is he justified in his fear? Cite evidence from the text in support of your response.
What is Golding's point in having the pig's head say, "Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill! . . . I'm part of you" (143)?
Jack chooses to hunt the sow instead of any of the other pigs. What does that say about the progress of Jack's character?
During the climax of the chapter, from pages 119-123, who is more courageous, Jack or Ralph? Cite textual evidence in support of your response.
Golding juxtaposes two opposite scenes on pages 112 and 113. What is the purpose of this juxtaposition? Citing textual evidence, explain what these two scenes reveal about Ralph’s evolution.
