The Hunting Party Returns
The hunting party returns the next morning having successfully hunted down a wild pig. He asserts his perceived role as head chief by carrying the severed head of the pig on a spear. He addresses boys from both camps and promises all of them will eat. He invites Ralph, Piggie, and Simon as well. During Jack’s speech Simon feels some connection to the pig’s head and interrupts Jack to say that the pig has declared him Lord of the Flies. Jack is enraged and tells his followers to “get him out of here.”
