Lord of the Flies
William Golding
pg. 31

The only real unjustice that's been done to a character so far is the way all the boys treat Piggy. Piggy is a really fat an lonely boy and he just wants people to be nice to him. Ralph calls him Piggy in front of the other boys, even though it's the one name he doesn't want to be called. Jack called him Fatty and everyone just tells him to shut up. He is obviously the smartest boy on the island, but no one listens to him just because he's fat. There's no real crime that occurs, it's just boys being mean. I can't really bring this injustice to light, because it's already a public thing.


  1. This reminds me a lot of my book! Bullying really is an injustice and can have more affects then what people may think! What is Piggy's real name? Do they make fun of him for anything else? How does Piggy react?

  2. He has a real name, but he never says what it is. He also has asthma and glasses, so they make fun of him for that. He's sad and dissapointed, but mostly he just takes it.
