The pig’s head then progresses by instructing Simon to go and socialise with the other boys, or they will think he is crazy. ‘You’d better run off and play with the others’. ‘You don’t want Ralph to think you’re batty, do you?’ Overall, in this vital episode, ‘The Lord of the Flies’ starts forcing Simon into thinking that no one on the island likes him. This is principally illustrated in chapter 8 because the ‘Lord of the Flies’ tries to affect Simon’s thoughts by making him socialise with the evil boys. The beast attempts taking control of Simon by saying, ‘There isn’t anyone to help you. Only me. And I’m the Beast’. Simon’s reaction to this is to shout insults at the pig’s head. ‘Pig’s head on a stick!’ This confirms that Simon understands that this is all it is. The Lord Of The Flies attempts gaining Simon’s obedience. This is ironic because it is similar to what happens to Jesus, making chapter 8 religiously momentous as well. Subsequently, the ‘Lord of the Flies’ informs Simon that ‘he can’t kill it.’ The beast sarcastically says, ‘Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill!’ This section is even more relevant because the ‘Lord Of The Flies’ tries to embed it’s presence inside Simon’s head by declaring its state of immortality. The island itself, particularly chapter 8, functions as a kind of Garden of Eden that is gradually corrupted by the introduction of evil. The Lord of the Flies may be seen as a symbol for the devil, since it works to promote evil among mankind. An example of this is when the ‘Lord of the Flies’ tells Simon to, ‘Get back to the others.‘ This promotes evil because the other boys’ evil will affect Simon. Chapter 8 is very considerable because it is when Simon is faced with the ethical reality of the novel and is killed sacrificially as a consequence of having discovered the truth. In chapter 8, Golding conveys that Simon’s life has strong parallels with that of Jesus which is a very pivotal part of the chapter. His conversation with the Lord of the Flies mirrors the confrontation between Christ and the devil in Christian theology. There are unfortunate consequences to Simon’s death in that the island is thrown into a deeper network of misery and unhappiness. The beast says to Simon, ‘Aren’t you afraid of me?’ and ‘You don’t want Ralph to think you’re batty do you?’ Simon’s wisdom is portrayed through the concept that he does not believe and act by the beast’s words, indicating the importance and great significance of chapter 8 to the novel. To conclude, Chapter 8 is key to Golding’s Lord Of The Flies because it is where the instability of Jack, Piggy and Ralph an the island is conveyed. This has strong comparisons with people’s physical and emotional feelings during World War 2. Additionally, being under immense pressure of the gradual immersion of a dystopia, some of the boys like Ralph loose control but others like Jack capitalise on the fear of the littluns. This is echoed in the war when Hitler capitalises on the fear of the other countries and the public. Golding also conveys the notion of fear in chapter 8 making the chapter significant. The chapter is also prophetic because of Simon’s death. Finally, Golding explains the divisions within the group of children as a symbol of destruction of order and authority. This originate>
