This is an awsome essay Feel free to use it Great comparison of books excellent work novels Throughout Lord of the Flies and Heart of Darkness the importance of restraint is greatly stressed This being the restraint to remain human and maintain sanity In Heart of Darkness Marlow was able to remain his restriant despite how difficult it was for him He was always surrounded by cannibals and constant chaos On the other hand Kurtz was unable to keep his restriant as a result he lost his humanity and sanity and eventually died because of it In Lord of the Flies Ralph is able to restrain restrain and he therefore remains human He found it difficult though because there was only one other person who was able to do the same- Piggy Ralph was determined to maintain order and he was very alone because of it Jack on the other hand gave in to the temptationof simply hunting and playing and lost his humanity in the process He became a savage - not a human being but a savage with a painted body and strange barbaric ways In contrast the cannibals in Heart of Darkness who are starving could have easily had many satisfying meals After all they outnumbered the whites thirty to five but they still had necessary restraint to refrain from savagely feasting on some of the easily accessible seamen Towards the end of the novel Marlow becomes becomes very close to losing his sanity but also has the necessary restraint to maintain it He confuses the beat of a drum the call to mans primative side with his own heartbeat but is still able to restrain from slipping over the edge as Kurt did Ralph in Lord of the Flies is constantly faced with temptation to join Jack and all of the other boys especially when Piggy dies and he is all alone This makes it even more difficult to restrain
