The boys are considered to be a microcosm or miniature example symbolizing the whole picture. They are supposed to be society. The microcosm of society and civilization. Ralph is considered to be good civilization with law and authority and just rule. Piggy is considered to be the intellectual part of society. Then, Simon is considered to be religion or good. Finally, Jack is considered to be the archetype of cruel or oppressive government or savagery. He also represents military power.

Well for Simon, he symbolises a Jesus like figure, such as 'then he took the lines in his hands; freed them from the rocks', shows how despite being seriously ill (sunstroke, seizures etc..) he was still considerate towards this dead pilot by freeing him from the rocks so he could die in dignity. This is not something a young boy would do. Also at the beginning of the book there is something about him telling Ralph that he won't make it through but Ralph will, this is similar to Jesus sacrificing himself in order to save others. Not sure about the other characters but hope that was of some help? :)

How are lost and Lord of the Flies similar?

In order to achieve one’s aspiration or desire, it may be necessary for some to become ruthless and cruel. Macbeth by William Shakespeare and Lord of the Flies by William Golding both depict characters intent on achieving complete power over others by β€˜removing’ all obstacles in their way. Jack and Macbeth stand out in their ability to manipulate, demonstrating great skill in convincing other characters to commit atrocities for their own benefits. They share a common motivation, driven by ambition
