What page in Lord of the Flies do Piggy's glasses break?

During the confrontation on the mountain top, which takes places after the signal fire has been allowed to go out, Jack punched Piggy in the stomach. Piggy fell and his glasses came off, resulting in one lense becoming cracked. Later in the novel Roger toppled a large boulder from the top of Castle Rock. The boulder hit Piggy a glancing blow which knocked him off the cliff. Piggy landed on a flat rock in the sea with enough force for his head to split open and his brains to get spilled on the rock. In this incident Piggy's glasses and the conch were also smashed to pieces.Another answer: One lens of Piggy's glasses was broken as a result of Jack punching him but the rest of the glasses remained intact. Jack and two of his hunters stole Piggy's glasses during a raid on the shelters, so he didn't have them when he was hit by the boulder. At the end of the book the naval officer notices... A little boy who wore the remains of an extrordinary black cap on his red hair and who carried the remains of a pair of spectacles at his waist...


How is Piggy different from Ralph?

Ralph admires piggy because piggy has a clear sense of things. He doesn't think about the negatives. And he doesn't think things that will get him scared. He states the truth and lives with it. that is what makes him who he is.


How does jacks attack on piggy and the breaking of one of the lenses in his spectacles symbolize the degeneration of the group?

Jack's attack on Piggy and the breaking of one of the lenses in his spectacles symbolize the degeneration of the group because at one time the group was whole and all together and then they started to break away from the big group just like Piggy's glasses once were one full piece of glass and then they got broken apart.


Why are flies such an appropriate metaphor in Lord of the Flies?

In the book, the kids refer to the littluns as insects. Piggy even says that he couldn't remember all their names because there were SO many. Thus, they are considered to be like swarming flies. Too many to count, and insect-like. That is one reason why the book is called Lord of the Flies. The other reason is that from time immemorial, one of the many names for Satan has been "The Lord of the Flies". The older boys (excluding Piggy) are the Lords of the Flies. The protagonist, Ralph, is THE Lord of the Flies. Satan is the embodiment of all that is evil. This is eventually what the boys become as time goes on - truly evil.


Who dies in lord of the flies-?

Simon was beaten to death when he was mistaken for the 'beast.' Piggy was killed when he was knocked from the causeway by a boulder and the littlun with the mulberry coloured birthmark on his face disappeared after the first fire got out of control, presumably killed by the fire or by smoke. Ralph also stabbed at least two of Jack's hunters with his spear so they may also have been killed or badly injured.

How do they start the fire in Lord of the Flies?

They collect dead wood and use lenses from Piggy's glasses to focus the sunlight and set wood on fire. (Since Piggy had been - very likely - nearsighted, his glasses would be useless. Nearsighted people need diverging lenses which cannot set fire. It seems to be a serious hole in the plot, for nitpickers.)


Who were the two boys that had been killed in the Lord of the Flies?

Simon and Piggy.

Where is Piggy located in the meeting in Lord of the Flies?

When does piggy die and how lord of the flies?

When Piggy and Ralph were at Castle Rock Roger pushed the boulder over the cliff and Piggy was killed when it hit part of his body and knocked him off the mountain forty feet on to a rock. That all happened in Chapter 11, Castle Rock.Another answer: Piggy dies on the day that he and Ralph went to Castle Rock to demand the return of Piggy's glasses. This is the day before Ralph is hunted, the island is set on fire and the boys are eventually rescued. The boulder did not hit him on the head. The boulder actually struck Piggy a glancing blow, from chin to knee, which smashed the conch into a "thousand white fragments." Piggy traveled sideways through the air, turning over as he went. Piggy fell forty feet and landed, on his back, on the square rock in the sea. "His head opened and stuff came out and turned red. Piggy's arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig's after it has been killed."


How do you look pretty with glasses?

As long as you're confident, you can look pretty in and/or with anything, including glasses. I first started wearing glasses in fourth grade, then switched to contacts in eighth grade, but had to switch back to glasses in tenth. I hate the idea of wearing glasses, but I was confident and never looked back. Now, I really like glasses, even though contacts are much better for my eyes.
