This paper discusses the main characters and communication conflicts throughout William Golding's novel 'The Lord of the Flies." The writer explores the lack of communication, respect and complete disregard between Ralph the protagonist and Jack the antagonist which eventually led to moral decay as so vividly described in the book.

From the Paper:

"From the beginning, on their first excursion to establish the fact they are indeed on an island, Jack is careful to observe, preserve, and catalog as many of Ralph's personality traits as possible. To gain further confidence from Ralph, Jack takes on as many of Ralph's responsibilities as he feels are consistent with his new role as "Chief of the Hunters," whether or not he has the capability to carry out the assignments. Paramount among these responsibilities is the task of keeping the signal fire going around the clock. Many chores he fails to accomplish but he compensates for the failures by using Ralph's inadequacies against him before the group."
