Good vs. EvilTheme is an underlying message in a novel, short story or any other literary text. Good versus Evil is one of the most common themes that is likely to appear in almost every artwork. Mainly the protagonist characters are good. In Lord of the Flies, most of the characters represent something.
Ralph represents innocence. Piggy represents loyalty. Simon represents goodness, caring, and faith. Jack represents evil and corruption.
Apparently, the main conflict in this plot is not good versus evil, but it is the fear of the beast. The two main characters in the Lord of the Flies are Ralph and Jack. As Jack represents Evil and Ralph represents innocence and goodness we can say that it is Ralph versus Jack.
