In Chapter 10 of Lord of the Flies by William Golding, it is Ralph who recalls what Simon has said of the dead parachutist:
Ralph remembered the ungainly figure on a parachute
"He said something about a dead man." He flushed painfully at this admission that he had been present at the dance. He made urging motions at the smoke and with his body. "Don't stop--go on up!"
Ralph urges the boys, Sam and Eric to replenish the fire as a signal, but also as light to protect them from the darkness. For, unlike Piggy who rationalizes, the unnerved Ralph recognizes that there is evil present, but he is not intuitive as Simon and cannot understand that the beast is within them.
