Two conflicts that happened in chapter four is that, 1) the boys on the island were acting vicious toward eachother and 2) the fire stopped burning when a ship came near, thanks to Jack who was preoccuied hunting for meat they didn't need.
Early in the chapter, William Golding (the author) described Henry, Pascal, and Johnny playing on the beach. Johnny threw sand into the air and got it into Pascal's eyes who had just gotten the sand Maurice kicked out of his eyes moments before. Later, Roger followed Henry to the shore where he (Roger) began unsuccessfully throwing coconuts and various stones at Henry, on purpose. On top of this, toward the end of the chapter, Jack began acting cruel towards many of the boys because he was confronted about something he did wrong. Typical Jack felt the need to turn the situation around, though, and talk about how great he was. Therefore, the boys in general were malicious toward eachother. The other conflict was that a ship came near the island, and the boys could have been rescued, but weren't because Jack let the fire burn out. I feel this is the more significant conflict of the two because if it wasn't fore Jack's selfish behavior, they could have all been going home and reuniting with their long-lost families. Jack and his need for letting everyone know how talented he was got in the way of this, however, because he neglected his real duty to keep the fire going. Instead, he took all the members of the choir with him, leaving no one to watch over the fire, so they could kill a pig. The ironic thing in this situation was that as Ralph said they didn't even need meat. Therefore, Jack just wanted to show off...once again.
I agree with Olivia because Jack's mistake completely changed the course of the story from what might have happened had the fire not gone out.
I disagree with Olivia on only one thing: The boys did need meat as an addition to all of the fruit they had been eating. It should not have been the top priority, but it was important.
I agree with Olivia that the most significant conflict was when Jack took all the choir boys to kill a pig and let the fire go out as a ship passed by. This is more significant because they can have meat any day when they are at home, but the chance to actually get home comes in little chance to never.
I also agree with Olivia and her idea of that jack got too carried away showing off when he should have done the job he was given of watching the fire.
i agree with olivia. The biggest conflict was when Jack let the fire go out. This insident if different could have changed theirs lives. IF jack hadnt let the fire go out maybe the ship would have seen them and they would be going home. So this sparked a big thing with ralph and jack.
I think that what Olivia said was correct. There was two major conflicts thoughtful this chapter one being that the fire went out and a ship went by, and the second being that the boys aren't cooperating or being nice to eachother on the island.
I think the two conflicts in this chapter were (1) The fire dying before the ship came in view of the island and (2) The conflict between the boys. I think the main issue of this chapter is Jack. If Jack had listened to Ralph, and kept the fire alive, they might have been rescued. Also, the conflict between the boys on the island was mainly just Jack making Ralph and Piggy mad. Jack was a bully from the start, but now it's even worse.
I think the most significant conflict in this chapter was missing their chance of being rescued. It was the first ship they've seen since they've been on the island, and they also had firewood ready for this very situation. But because Jack didn't keep the fire lit, all the boys have lost their chance of finally being rescued. it would have solved the entire problem of being stranded on an island.
I agree, the main conflict was the fire burning out. I also agree that Jack was the cause of the issues
I stonly agree with olivia's points. I think they were well explained.
Two conflicts that arise in this chapter are the little boys being mean to each other and the groups signal fire going out when a ship passed. In the beginning of the chapter, a few of the little boys are playing down on the beach together building sandcastles. Then, Rodger and Maurice came down onto the beach and destroyed their sandcastles, and getting sand in Percival's eyes. Percival began to cry. After the tears washed the sand away, another boy, Johnny, flung sand into his eyes again. This cruelty at such this young age is just an example of how the boys are going to face conflicts between each other during their time on the island. Another conflict in this chapter was the signal fire being left unattended and going out as a ship passing by. This is a big deal because the boys could have been rescued. Jack took the boys who were on fire duty with him to go hunting. He was just concerned with getting meat for them. His narrow focus on killing a pig led to the boys missing a rescue. This conflict is a shorter conflict than the conflict between the boys in general because the tensions between the boys will last forever and this missed rescue was just one instance. Even though the fire going out is more of a short term conflict, it is the greater conflict in this chapter because the boys missed the opportunity to go home forever.
The two main conflicts in chapter 4 were the boys in general being mean to each other and Jack letting the fire go out while he and his choir boys once again tried to kill a pig. The latter was the most significant because if the ship had seen them, it could've been a major turning point in the story. With world war III going on in the outside world, the ship could have been one from an ally or foe. If it was from their country or an allied country they could've been saved and returned safely home and if it was an enemy then they could have been taken prisoner or killed. Instead, Jack was once again being counterproductive and trying to kill a pig to keep up his tough exterior. The boys have been mean towards each other from day one, like when Ralph pretty much shunned Piggy, so that's nothing new. It's also completely normal, especially for the younger ones, to tire of each other. Anyone would be aggravated if they were around the same people every day on a deserted island. So, of the two conflicts, letting the fire go out was definitely more significant.
I think that the main conflict in this chapter is Jack allowing the signal fire to go out because he so selfishly wanted meat and didnt have enogh people. Another conflict in the chapter is between the younger boys (percival) get sand in their eyes by marice who is acting care free at the time however i think this represents the island in a symbolic way as well because marice feels guilt because of his past learnings but he no longer recives punishment
