Ralph does not face the Lord of the Flies (which is the name the author gave to the evil within each of us), he does however encounter the head of the sow mounted on a stick by Jack and left as an offering for the imagined beast. Ralph's initial reaction is one of surprise, as he has no idea why a pig's skull has been mounted on a stick. He was never party to Jack's offering and seemingly nobody ever informed him about it. The very look of the thing unsettles him and fills him with disgust, and in a manner typical of a boy who 'wears his heart on his sleeve,' he punches the skull and knocks it off the stick, causing it to break into two pieces. Then, ever practical, Ralph takes the stick to use as a weapon to defend himself.

the pigs head, which tells Simon it is the lord of the fies. Ralfs sees the pigs head, and smashes it to the floor, but even though it is split, the "leer" seems even bigger, this symbolises that if you try and fight the beast, it will become worse. He also arms himself with the stick it was sitting on.

Probably the single most important decision or action which Ralph took in Lord of the Flies was to place Jack in charge of the choir and allow him to choose their role on the island. Other key actions or inactions where when Ralph chose not to blow the conch to recall the boys who had followed Jack away from the meeting when they voted about ghosts. Ralph worried the boys might ignore the conch and undermine his authority but by failing to impose his authority he effectively underminded it himself. Similarly he allowed Jack to say 'Bollocks to the rules' and get away with it. Ralph's key actions were mainly inactions, he failed to make the rest of the boys follow his example and build shelters. Ralph was a little too easy going, he rules by concensus and the real concensus was that the boys didn't want to be ruled. Ralph did however stand in the ashes of the signal fire and force the replacement fire to be built elsewhere, which was a good show of authority. Ralph also chose to go to castle rock first to see if the beast was there.

Lord of the Flies- Chapter 4 -What is the significance of the title Painted faces and Long Hair?

The boys painting their faces is kind of like wearing a mask or becoming another person and it's easier to do bad things when you're someone else, therefore they become more savage.The painting of faces, as well as the effects mentioned above, also indicates how Jack and his hunters are embracing the more primative and violent side of their nature, they are actively becoming savages. The long hair by contrast refers to Ralphs distaste for his long hair, dirty skin and dirty clothes. It shows his rejection of the progress towards savagery and his desire to retain what little remains of the trappings of civilisation.
