Order and Authority

LRDFLS-EGYT4X

Which of the following major symbols best symbolizes authority and order? Why?

A

The fire: its light serves as a beacon of civilization, and its absence represents chaos on the island.

B

The conch: its sound calls the boys together, and respect for it holds the group together for most of the book.

C

Piggy's specs: these are the boys link to fire, a basic element of any organized society.

D

The beast: fear of this creature drives the boys to organize themselves and behave in an orderly manner.

E

The masks: these hide the boys' increasingly savage appearance behind neat lines of clay, and give those that wear them real power over others.
