Lord of the Flies Characters

Often in literature, the actions of a character indicate what kind of person he is. In the novel Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, both Ralph and Jack's actions indicate what kind of people they are. Ralph's actions indicate that he's a responsible, intelligent leader. Jack's actions indicate that he's a crazy, devil-like leader.
Ralph indicates that he is a smart, responsible leader by doing various things throughout the journey on the island. He takes control and acts as the leader in the beginning of the story. This is hisfirst good move. All the other people on the island were either younger or not as smart in his eyes. This act of taking over shows that Ralph is an intelligent and responsible individual. He also makes keeping the fire going the number one priority of the forsaken boys. This is the only way they will be rescued. All the other boys think about having fun, playing games, and going hunting. Ralph thinks logically and understands that this is the only way out and the boys will be thankful later on. This shows once again how good of a leader Ralph is. Ralph makes a set of rules and tries to enforce them. He wants to maintain order and retain the kids in a civilized state of matter. Of course this doesn't work, but at least he tries. This action of him making rules indicates that Ralph is a responsible and intelligent leader. Lastly, Ralph sticks up for Piggy at some times in the story, although he embarrasses him at times too. He knows that Piggy is the "brains" of the group. They need him. This action of protecting Piggy shows how smart and caring Ralph is. Ralph's actions indicate what kind of person he is.
Jack indicates that he is a crazy, devil-like leader by doing various things throughout the island adventure. Atfirst, he fights over Ralph being the lone leader and argues with everybody. This shows how shallow he is. Ralph is the chosen lead
