Lord of the Flies Character Analysis of Piggy

Lord of the Flies With evil lurking around every corner, it became harder and

harder to find a good soul on the mysterious island. In William Golding’s Lord

of the Flies that one good soul was found in Piggy. He wasn’t violent and he

was one of the only boys who tried to keep all of the other children civil by

mimicking adults. Although Piggy had physical limitations that some say

“prevented” Piggy from joining the other boys in savagery; he never

possessed and evil spirit like Jack, Roger, and Ralph. “Shove a palm trunk

under that and if an enemy came – look!” Jack noticed these things such as

places to build forts, and weapons that can be made. While Piggy’s main

interests were in building shelters to be protected, and a sundial to know what

time it was. There are may other things that Piggy did to attempt to bring order

to the island just like a grown-up. When Jack was busy hunting pigs and

dancing about in the blood that engulfed him, Piggy just wanted people to

listen to him. He yearned for someone to listen to his ideas without asking

questions: when he suggested moving the fire to the beach, he just wanted a

ship passing by to see them. Piggy mimicked adults, he did not run about in a

savage nature, he was good. Being the only boy that wasn’t violent, shows

how diverse Piggy was from the other boys on the island. “I got the conch I tell

you” Piggy screamed in attempt to gain the boys’ lost attention, “I tell you I got the conch.” Good finally prevailed and Piggy gained the boys’ attention. Never once did Piggy resort to violence, even when his glasses were stolen, he

proved he was above violence. Unlike Jack, Piggy never killed. Piggy never

hunted or kill a pig, let alone hurt another human being, he used his mind not

his size to get attention. Being the biggest boy on the island, he had the upper

hand in any fight that would have gone his way. Piggy talked out his conflict, in his opinion violence was not an option. “I just take the conch to say this. I can’t see no more and I got to get my glasses back. Awful things has been done on this island. I voted for you (Ralph) for chief. He is the only one who ever gotthings done. So now you speak, Ralph, and tell us what to do. Or else –

“Piggy realizes that bad and evil things had been happening. He was not just

about to stand for it either, he took charge of the situation civilly. Piggy was a thinker, he thought things and situations out and told someone like Ralph what

they were. He wasn’t good at confrontation, he was to nice. The one time he

was driven into being forceful, it wasn’t to get people to listen to him, he just wanted his glasses back so he could see. “That’s right. Can’t catch my breath. I was the only boy in our school who had asthma,” Piggy started to explain his situation to Ralph. “And I’ve been wearing specs since I was three.” Whether or not Piggy could run around savagely was irrelevant. The point to be made was that he didn’t, he never lusted for blood like Jack, and he never killed like Ralph. He never even killed a pig. Perhaps if Piggy was skinny and didn’t wear glasses or have asthma, the situation would have been different, but is wasn’t, Piggy refrained form being savage. He was the only good soul on an island full of evil.
