Lord of the Flies: Summary of Conclusion

I feel that the conclusion of such a story needs not much thought. It has already been shown that the boys are becoming quite savage and thoughtless, and that only a handful of sensible boys remain. Sooner or later the group would split into two different sects of people. One group being the levelheaded and realistic boys who want to be rescued, led by Ralph, and the other boys with the leader Jack and the self proclaimed hunters. Separation was bound to happen sooner or later because of the strong influence that Jack had on most of the characters so far in the tory.

Jack is the kind of character who brings out the evil in all people including those of whom he has now claimed as hunters. His hunters would follow him anywhere, including into an eternal life of savagery and barbarity. And so it poses the question to whether the good boys, led by Ralph would survive. They would not be so threatened by nature, lack of food, shelter and such other things, they could survive it, but I think that their biggest threat would be Jack’s group of hunters who seem adamant n damage and violence and drifting away from the real world.

Jack is the kind of character who is defined as a psychotic person who was refrained from his true genetic personality and yearning for violence because of the standards to which he was born. He was a rich and went to a private school where he could not be himself. The school was very strict and therefore not allowing any of the boys to do things that they had always wanted. So then, when faced with the idea of an island with no adults where they can do as they like, they give in to the idea of being unters and playing a game of being a native, wearing war paint, killing animals and getting their own meat.

Sooner or later, Jack would lose all control and split the groups feeling that Ralph’s unadventurous boys were cramping his style and unessential to his hunters — when in fact, Ralph’s boys had the right idea. I think that there is a lot to be said on the subject of whether the boys will or will not be rescued. I feel that it is possible, but without the help of the numerous hunters it may prove as impossible. The chances f another plane passing overhead in the exact area are extremely low.

Also keeping the fire going and contacting that plane to see the boys will also be quite hard. Is it not very likely that the plane saw the boys or even suspecting seeing them the first time around, so another plane will probably not return. It is up to the boys to survive for as long as it takes for another plane to come or whatever comes next. However, with the emerging problems — all as a result of Jack and his hideous influence — not much can be said for the success of Ralph and his boys.

In this story the author shows a lot of points. He reveals the dark side of human nature. How, out of the estimated 25 boys, at least 15 of those polite and refined young men resorted to inhumanity and lost all control. The author also shows how it can happen to anyone, including the cream of society, the best and most cultivated young men. I feel that the story would soon end up a sad ending. With Jack leading the hunters, it leads me to believe that there is but little hope for the all the boys, either for being rescued, or for survival.
