The lord of the flies-English

Hey guys.
could you please help me out with this?
From chapter 12:
1)What does Ralph say to the twins when they refuse to help him?
2)How does the author describe Ralphs flight accross the island?
3)Why does Ralph say that he is in charge of the island?

If you could help me out that would be so great!! :D

I have never read this book, but those questions look as if they can be answered from the book directly -- no extra thinking required!

Be sure to find those exact places in the story, and you'll find your answers. If you still have trouble, try this:


what's going on in chapter 12? i read tihs last year and might be able to help.

Its the end of the book. Ralph hides in the jungle because jack and everyone are planning on killing him.
Jack sets fire to the whole jungle to pushed Ralph out of it. He gets chased by them and ends up colapsing on the beach were the naval officer is.
Does that help?

The author told the flight as a huge hard and dangerous journey. The point of this in such detail is to show that it seemed like such a huge feat to a small boy, but that to the naval officer it just looked like a game.
I have no idea what Ralph said to the twins... maybe something about them never being able to leave.???
He says that he is in charge though because he was the only one who remained "civil" throughout the expierence.

Thank you so much!
What about...
What comparison is implied at the end of the novel?
Thanks for the help! :D

The comparison is the difference between the real world where they are all just little kids, and the island where they were strugggling on the "giant" and "sweldering" island.
Piggy's fall is emphasized because it was the first real killing that occured and it was such a brutal act. It was the turning point of when they were just pretending to be "savage" and actually behaving that way.

Ok great thanks..
and the last one..
Why is percival unable to remember his name and address?
Thanks so much!

  6. ralph tells the twins that he is going to hide so then they can tell Jack's tribe to go somewhere else as to trick him. this was irony for SamnEric because they could of did the opposite of what Ralph told them and just tell Jack where Ralph is hiding at.
