Non-Fiction Reading & Writing:
Today I chose an article from Dornob. If any trends couldn’t get weirder enough, now we have PyroPets! According to Dornob, “PyroPet is a family of animal shaped candles that each reveal a surprise within as they burn. The first PyroPet product is a cute little cat called “Kisa”. (“Kisa” means “kitty” in Icelandic). Sweet little kittens are transformed in a fire. Crawling from the ashes come forth grinning metallic devils with sharp claws and fire blazing in their eyes.” So basically, you can get a cute little candle cat, and when you burn it alive, you see a metal cat skeleton to get your hopes down even more. If you want to see fake kitties die, you can go to Kickstarter and support their candle animal abasement! When they succeed there goal, they will start mass producing much more of these and will start to make more animals for you to incinerate!
LOTF: Symbolism Project
I had to make a book cover for LOTF that included several symbols that I was either taught or figured out myself. Here is what my book cover represents:
The title represents in my book cover, how Jack and Ralph want to all be a lord, but everyone one else is a pawn; a fly in this book. Always used to get their goals.
The eyes represent how even though William Golding says we can all be like that, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look down on it.
The mud on the face means how tear the middle of the novel, they stop caring about hygiene; at least to there extent.
The hair equals Ralph’s hair, and his hair equals how as his hair grows, the savagery of the kids grows as well.
The face paint represents the kids’ fear of being non-innocent and that is their way of putting it off so they don’t feel sad about what they have done.
The yelling mouth represents the dancing of the boys, and how they have gotten one more step away from being normal.
The tiny scary face represents the beast, and how if they stood up and proved that it wasn’t real, then they would realize how small the beast is compared to the danger of there own group. It also represents evil, fear, etc.
The fire represents some of the last order that can be significantly found on the island, and also a causer of destruction. I also feel that with every bit of order and peace, there is a price, and that this bit of order brings all of those bad effects into play.
The “Lord of the Flies” represents disorientation and the final step to an island apocalypse before mankind comes and picks it up again.
The pig hunts, or the chant of killing pigs that the boys sing, represents the thrive for mans violence and slaughter. Also the red parts of the chant represent how they are always bleeding, just emotionally and not physically. There hearts and thrive for happiness goes away as the island goes with them.
The burnt ground represents the damage they have done not only to themselves, but also the surrounding area.
I also completed my Lesson 1-4 Review that had a hidden message if I got it right, which I did!
