Mob Mentality and Lord of the Flies

In the novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, William uses the group of boys as a mob as both a positive and a negative. When the lighting strikes on Jack's feast in chapter 9, the littluns gather in a nervous circle of saftey and begin to chant "'Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!'" (152)
