Vocabulary & Text Structure
How can meaning be altered by changing key words?
Ralph believes that the conch should not be treated disrespectfully. on page 78 "Ralph felt a kind of affectionate reverence for the conch, even though he had fished the thing out of the lagoon himself." He is honoring the conch and believes people should not disrespect it because it could potentially help the boys on the island.
Key Details
Are there any shifts of patterns in the writing?
There is a shift when Ralph says that he needs an assembly, he is becoming more serious. On page 79, "We need an assembly. Not because for fun. Not for laughing and falling off the log-." And later on in the chapter o page 83 things start to fall apart and they aren't communicating properly. Ralph is becoming more of a leader.
The Title Beast From Water:
i believe the chapter is called Beast from water because the kids start to believe that there is actually a beast of some sort on the island with them trying to kill them. They all believe that the beast is a powerful weapon. Jack then promises to kill the beast if they kind it while hunting.
