The beast is a symbol of the evil inside people, their capacity to do violent and unpleasent things simply because they that have the power to do so and also because they wish to do so. The beastie or snake-thing also symbolises irrational fear of the unknown.
It signify's the evil within us all.
The regular sticks in Lord of the Flies were spears. They were probably made by Jack who had a knife. The spears represented savage nature. The spears were used to hunt pigs but also to hurt and kill humans, like Ralph.
The two-pointed stick was meant for the pig head. One point would go into the head and the other point would be stuck in the ground. Before the hunt for Ralph started, Samneric warned Ralph that "Roger had sharpened a stick at both ends". This meant that the boys were going to capture Ralph, then kill him and behead him.
The hunting symbolizes that it is human nature to impose your will upon another creature and to prove your power over it. That there is a natural thrill and exhilaration of proving that you can outwit an animal and take it's life. This is why enemy soldiers are often called "beasts" or "savages" or "inhuman monsters". It is easier to kill or harm something that is on a lower evolutionary level rather than an equal.
Th beast can be referred to as the Devil in biblical terms, (similar to jesus's time in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights, referring to Simon as Jesus), but the beast is often interpreted as "every humans weakness", which is fear of the unknown and how peoples imagination can influence large numbers, those being right or wrong.
the sharpened stick represents 2 things.
1. it originally held the head of the pig which was to be an offering
2. it represents a sort of sick and twisted justice. roger was going to stick ralphs head on a stick when they caught him in the last chapter.
The "Lord of the Flies" symbolizes the devil. The legitimate meaning of the "lord of the flies" from The Bible, is Beelzebub, or the devil.
The spear of Jack represented evil. Jack & the hunters uses spears to hunt pigs. Jack thinks that he is the best at everything and all that.
it symbolizes power. it is feared but it provides saftey and protection making the boys NOT defensless
Satan and the future of the boys' society
The FLIES are a representation of the evil and decay that exists in all humanity. Flies live on death, the flies do not care who of what you were, their job is to clean up the mess left behind. The flies also represent the boys, who are drawn to the evil that Jack represents just as the real flies are draw to the pig's head on the stick, which was an offering to the beast.
Jack represents unbridled savagery and the desire for power.
The natural pool is close to the platform and the shelters.
Saying that the Lord of the Flies speakes in 'the voice of a schoolmaster' shows that Simon is still thinking of home, but more importantky that the boys are following the Lord of the Flies rules on the island in the same way they would the schoolmaster back in England.
Piggy represents intellectualism and science. Piggy represents logic, intelligence, and conservative adult values.
the Lord of the flies, is the pig head that was put on the stick.
The flies itself do not represent much but that off rotting or decay (from the pig's head). But the flies in the phrase "lord of the flies" do have a meaning. "Lord of the Flies" is translated in the Bible as Beelzebub, or the devil. Also, Simon was not evil, he was the "Jesus" figure in the story.
