What is the first act Ralph performs on the island, and how might this be read in terms of Christian allegory?

A

He bathes in the pool, which can be seen as symbolic of the ritual of baptism.

B

He explores the mountain, which parallels prophets who talk with God in high places.

C

He learns the names of all the other boys, which is similar to how Adam names all forms of life.

D

He calls the group together using the conch, which could represent religious authority.

E

He begins to build shelters, which could be seen as symbolic temples.
