Writing about Piggy

If you studied The Lord of the Flies you may want to write about Piggy. At the end of the novel Ralph wept for the the loss of his “true, wise friend called Piggy”. If you would like to discuss how Piggy is presented as a wise and thoughtful character who tried to help the other boys think about:

  • Piggy’s concern for rules and organisation
  • How he tried to help Ralph be a good leader
  • How he tried to stand up against Jack and his followers.

Make sure that you support your ideas with lots of textual detail.

  1. Piggy was one of the widest boys in the group. ALways contributing wise ideas..yet only one boy appreciated him.
    His death in the end…was cruel.
