Quotation 2nd Quarter



“Roger gathered a handful of stones and began to throw them. Yet there was a space round Henry, perhaps six yards in diameter, into which he dare not throw. Here, invisible yet strong, was the taboo of the old life. Round the squatting child was the protection of parents and school and policemen and the law.” Chapter 4.

The beginning in the decline to savagery is showed when Roger throws stones at Henry. Yet he will not go as far as actually hitting Henry. Roger is forgetting some of morals and has started to take advantage of the littluns but he somewhere inside him he knows that he should not hit Henry. “...parents and school and policemen and the law.” This is a connection back to the world they use do live in where if Roger hurt Henry he would be punished by the law.
