Barrie, have similar characteristics that will be compared and contrasted in this paper. Of these views and motifs, the main message which is illustrated is one that questions society. While Jack considers the boys inferior to himself, Ralph treats the boys as equals. He over exercises his authority and hurls orders at his choir boys.

He has very bad eyesight and wears thick rimmed spectacles. Golding uses these themes consistently throughout the novel, clearly associating instinctive savagery with evil and the instinct of civilisation with good.

William Golding portrays these same ideas in his novel, Lord of the Flies, only Golding portrays these natural desires with english schoolchildren stranded on a tropical island paradise.

Instead of thinking rationally, perhaps as Ralph would, he resorts to violence. The sight of the hunters chanting and dancing is baffling and distasteful to him. Let us know! He has very bad eyesight and wears thick rimmed spectacles.

The expression of Golding's unorthodox and complex views are embodied in the many varied characters in the novel. The first time we see the two characters of Ralph and Jack contrast is in chapter one.
