Relationship Between Piggy And Ralph

Growing relationship between Piggy and Ralph


In order to complete this assignment one must look at too distinct characters. One is
Piggy. Piggy represents the law and order of the adult world. He is the superego, the part
of man's personality, which attempts to act according to an absolute set of standards.
Throughout the novel, Piggy attempts to condition the island society to mirror the society
they all lived in when they were in England. Piggy's continual references to his auntie
demonstrate this philosophy. He tries to pull Ralph towards the reason-oriented side of
human nature. The Other Character in the combination is Ralph. Ralph, a tall, blond,
twelve-year-old boy, establishes himself as the leader of the boys when he blows the conch
shell to call the first assembly. Throughout the story, he struggles to maintain order,
forced to compete with Jack for respect.

The relationship between Ralph in Piggy is somewhat complicated. Lord of the Flies a novel
by William Golding begins with these two characters. One the first several pages the
initial interaction between piggy and Ralph is described. At first Piggy is very eager to
see that another boy beside himself has survived the plane crash. Piggy is very
enthusiastic to introduce himself and get to know Ralph. In fact he is too enthused. This
introduction partially alienates Piggy. However Ralph notices that Piggy is a competent
individual and may be of value.

Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
