Golding presents the relationship between Ralph and Jack as an archeptypal battle between civil and savage. Ralph is very concerned with the boys re-building their society on the island, which includes rules and procedures, and mostly in keeping the fire lit so that they can be resuced. Jack, on the other hand, let life on the island unleash his savage self, as he becomes obsessed with hunting pigs and grows more and more violent as the novels go on.
