The Evil Within In William Goldings novel Lord of the Flies Golding illustrates how much the human mind can endure insanity and loneliness before becoming an immoral being Golding also shows that there is some hope through Simon and his ability to resist intimidation when faced by evils of unimaginable proportions An example of how much the mind can take the torture and torment of the darkness of mans heart is Ralph Golding characterizes Ralph as a boy who has trouble reality and dreams As Ralph drifts off into dreams he could remember how nice life was before the plane crash When he comes back to reality he realizes how much he has changed in the way he handles things and his overall rationale Eventually Ralph would prove that he could not handle all the stresses thus letting the animalism seep through him when he injures the pig After this he is swept up into the moment of death and blood and they all begin a play where Ralph gets too carried away and actually jabs Robert so hard that it hurts Robert Roger is the main character that Golding uses to show this savage evil Roger never really does seem to be a nice person since he throws rocks at the younger children even when he senses a ring around the children that seems to have the authority of grown-ups and yet he still does not care By the end of the story Roger becomes so accustomed to being cruel and has become the authority figure where he becomes heartless and immoral Even after he kills Piggy he only becomes more engulfed by the evil within the destruction of the conch shows his resistance to authority Golding even has Piggy change from being a well-mannered smart boy to a little stronger and willful kid This occurs because of Jacks total disregard of anyones feelings Thus causing Piggy to build up anger inside of him
