By keeping his actions hidden, Simon creates a sense of uncertainty and doubt, which undermines trust in his character.

The unexpected sign of a decaying body attached to a parachute fulfills their wish in a morbid and unexpected way. It symbolizes the failure of the adult world to provide them with the support and protection they desperately seek. This shocking image serves as a stark reminder of the harsh reality they are facing and the absence of authority figures to rely on.

By targeting Piggy, who is often seen as an outcast, Jack creates a sense of camaraderie among the other boys who join in on the teasing. This behavior allows Jack to assert his dominance and gain influence over the group, ultimately unifying them through their shared participation in mocking Piggy.

    Explanation
    Motif refers to the repetition of an idea or symbol in a story or across multiple stories. It can be a recurring theme, image, or symbol that adds depth and meaning to the narrative. Motifs often contribute to the overall theme of the work and help to develop characters or convey certain messages. In contrast, a symbol represents something beyond its literal meaning, while a theme is the central idea or message of a story. Bildungsroman, on the other hand, is a genre that focuses on the moral and psychological growth of the protagonist.

These clues can be subtle or explicit, but they serve to create anticipation and build tension for the reader. Foreshadowing allows the author to prepare the reader for what is to come, adding depth and complexity to the narrative. It helps to create a sense of cohesion and purpose in the story, making it a crucial element in storytelling.
