Homework Help: English/ Literature

Posted by Monica on Sunday, April 27, 2008 at 8:22pm.

Ok I need some help getting started here's the assignment:
Think of how one of the novel's symbols adds depth and/or richness to its allegorical meanings. (ie. the conch, the fire, Piggy's glasses, or the island itself). OR think of a conflict or comparison that illuminates one of the novel's themes. For example, the sow's head and the conch shell each wield a certain kind of power over the boys. In what ways do these objects' power differ? In what was is Lord of the Flies a novel about power? About the power of symbols? About the power of a person to use symbols to control a group? You might also examine the following pairs: Ralph and jack, Piggy and Simon, The parachutist and the vacal officer, the biguns and littluns, Piggy and Roger (as lieutenants), and the interplay of light and dark.

I need a specific thesis statement.. can you help me out??
