Lord as the “one kid” that always gets

Lord of the Flies Character AnalysisPiggy is one of the very first characters that were introduced to. At first, he comes off as the “one kid” that always gets joked around with. Ralph found the conch, but Piggy is the one who chooses to make it a tool to keep order on the island. Throughout the story, Piggy shows readers and audiences who he is. He’s intellectually superior, yet physically weak. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Piggy represents Individual Vs. Society by or through demonstrating order, leadership, and civilization.Piggy is a huge part of being a part of this island. He shows how he can keep order on the island. A quote that I picked out to support this idea was, “We can use this to call the others. Have a meeting. They’ll come when they hear us-” -Piggy(20) When Ralph and Piggy found the Conch, Piggy was the one that said they should use it as something to talk while they’re within meeting or group with all of the other boys to keep order while talking and making decisions. They said that whoever had the conch had the chance to speak their mind and other would have to listen. All throughout the book, the other boys on this island weren’t quite “on board” with how Piggy dealt with things, but after sitting down and listening to Piggy they found out that he had a lot of good advice and opinions about what should happen while they were on the island.Other traits that were demonstrated by Piggy was showing very great leadership skills. Another quote that I picked to support the idea of Piggy having leadership skills and being a leader was when he said: “We got to do something.” -Piggy(18) Him saying something this, even though it’s very short. It is also very meaningful at the same time. It is very interesting to see someone as young as Piggy saying such great things. All throughout the book, he shows readers that he isn’t physically very strong. In fact, he’s physically very weak. He is known on the island as “the fat boy.” He also has asthma and frequently struggles with that as he and Ralph make their way around the island.The last main skill shown within Piggy is being civilization. The quote that I chose to go with the theme of Piggy keeping civilization within the island was “Grown-ups know things,” said Piggy. “They ain’t afraid of the dark. They’d meet and have tea and discuss. The thing ‘and be all right-” They wouldn’t set fire to the island. Or lose-they’d build a ship-” Piggy (133). Overall, Piggy is a quality character within the book The Lord Of The Flies. He shows maturity well above his years and is a very respectable child. He doesn’t think about the “little things.” He thinks about the big picture and how things are going to affect him and all of the rest of the boys in the future on the island. He keeps order and is someone that seems to be enjoyed a lot by all the rest of the boys on the island. Piggy demonstrates order, leadership, and civilization.
