Below is an essay on "Roger" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

In the book Lord of the flies, Golding states that each person has   inner evil nature poorly covered by the society. Each person has an evil nature and is capable of committing crimes. The entire book represents human nature and society in general. Golding uses school boys to state the facts about human nature and society we live in. Jack shows authoritarian power by threatening and terrifying others. Roger killed piggy. Roger shows blood lust and violence. When Roger killed piggy he smashed the conch, which represents law and order. Conch was an important symbol until piggy’s death.
Roger was a boy with full of violence and hate. He didn’t   want to be a leader of the tribe like Jack but he wanted to hurt people like litlluns. He has no mercy. He was the one who killed piggy intentionally with the huge stone. He forgets morality. He was full of evilness and wrongness. He feels pleasure in torturing other boys on the island especially lilluns. Roger was very kind and loyal to Jack. He was like his right hand. He always follows his orders. He became more violent when they make their own tribe.
“There was a space round Henry, perhaps six yards in diameter, into which he dare not throw. Here, invisible yet strong, was the taboo of the old life." this quote shows how Roger started his cruelty against littluns and the first step towards the savagery. At this point their civilization started to show some cracks. Roger wants to hit Henry with the stones but the traces of social behavior are still strong. Social morals were keeping him not to hit Henry because somewhere in his mind he know that it’s wrong and society doesn’t allow it.
