Although they do not always comprehend what is going on around them, the littluns are important people. They are the ones who first see the Beast and are in constant fear of it, especially during the night. They are the 'rest of society' and often go with the flow and do what the bigguns are doing."

Lord of the Flies
Analysis of Lord of the Flies
Lord of the Flies, on the surface, may resemble any other children adventure story. Beyond its literal sense, however, it actually has a lot more to offer: it is an attempt to unfold the superficiality and fragility of civilization ...
To what extent can Lord of the Flies be considered a Marxist piece?
Why Did William Golding Name His Novel 'The Lord of the Flies'?
How Does Golding Create the Impression the Fire Has a Life of Its Own?
Analyse William Golding's choice of language during and after the killing of Simon. Why does the language use change?
The Beast in Lord of the Flies
How does William Golding show evil at work in Lord of the Flies?
Less Obvious Symbols in Lord of the Flies
Lord of the Flies begins with friendship and ends with violence. How does Golding present this change and what do you think is shown by it?
Read the passages in Chapter 3 where Jack and Simon are each in the Forest. How does the language convey their contrasting character and roles in the novel? Lord of the Flies is a thought-provoking novel ...

What is some of the symbolism in "Lord of the Flies"? (Note: What are some ...)
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
● First, the conch - a symbol of leadership, authority. Why? Used to call assemblies. The person holding it was granted the floor to speak.
● Spears - ability to hunt, provide, savagery, danger, murder. Why? Once spears were created, boys were then armed.
● Fire - rescue, warmth, hearth, comfort, light, food (cooking.) Why? Obvious. Fire has been a necessity and comfort since it was discovered.
● Pig's head on a spear - The Lord of the Flies. The Devil. Evil. Savagery in us all. Why? The boy hunters, reveling in their kill, stuck the pig onto the head and Simon, during an epileptic episode hallucinated the pig speaking to him, saying evil things. The dead pig represented killing.
