Could Simon Die It was a dark scary night Nothing could be clearly seen Loud thunder roared as thick drops of rain fell on the ground Nothing could be heard but the sound of thunder A group of agitated and aggressive boys danced with fear and excitement Golding creates a certain atmosphere under which anything could happen After the death even the boys dont understand what had happened on that forbidding night Piggy sums up all reasons for the death of Simon when he later says It was dark There was that that bloody dance There was lightning and thunder and rain We were scared Golding convinces his audience that the killing of Simon is credible by using an obscure setting mob action and the dance The night was dark and so it was hard to see clearly and it was thundering so it was hard to hear anything Golding uses this particular night for the murder of Simon to make the murder seem credible It was a frightening setting and the boys were scared and to lessen their fears the boys started to dance and chant The setting was responsible for the boys turning into a scared and restless mob Between the flashes of lightening the air was dark and terrible The setting is so terrifying that it even causes Ralph and Piggy to join the group under the threat of the sky When Simon crawls out of the forest Golding uses the word thing it or a beast to describe Simon Golding is the ominous all-knowing narrator yet he even uses such words instead of Simons name to heighten our fears and to increase the obscurity of the gloomy night The audience at first doesnt know for sure if it is Simon who has crawled out of the forest and so at that point it seems credible for the boys to beat up on something that resembles a beast To describe Simons arrival
