He always behaves very peacefully and kindly towards the younger boys and their work was for the good of their community. His motivation was rooted in his deep feeling of connectedness to nature (Di Martino and et.al., 2017).

From the analysis of the story of Novel Lord of files written by William Golding, it has been analyzed that all characters in the novel were not savage. Some characters like Ralph and Simon was honest and have good human being and soul. Thus, from this story about the civilization, the effect of power and innocence, it has been analyzed that in the human beings on the earth there are different natures, behaviors, soul, humanity, and mind of individuals. Their action reflects their characters, nature, and knowledge. A human being just survives on the earth by his own sense of humor (Mestitz, 2017). Their nature and behavior can change according to the situation and emotions are always attached with the mind and soul. It has also learned that people can do anything to survive and there is something about the power of fear. This fear contributed to them doing things that they would not do in civilization. It has also shown that human being required to develop empathy, responsibility, respect, and maturity. Author William Golding defined in the story that man is essentially defective, to begin with. Due to this reason, he uses children and they develop their natural instinct which occurs to be eviler. The author had shown that now humans have changed and they are becoming crueler. There is innate power in every human which is driving them towards the cruelty and leads to the destruction. Here author wants to describe that from the day we are born to the day we die the inevitability of evilness lies in us, holding and at the correct circumstance, that devil can be unleashed (Bagnall and et.al., 2017). A person can get contemplate in identifying who is evil and good. It can be made clear that Jack is the supporter and Simon is the purest character. Simon has gained his moral aspect from society. Goldings had shown that Simon had sacrificed himself for the truth to be released and was unsafe from the evils. Jack which is having the undeniable evil powers. The Author had shown the complex caverns which had surrounded human nature, showing the raw nerves which drive the human to evilness. This can be seen in today's society and unfortunately, we can fetch that how we have changed. In today's world, good can hardly be seen as winning over the man's own evil.

By this story, the boys change, turn on each other and eventually fight a war among themselves. From this essay, it has been also concluded that There is innate power in every human which is driving them towards the cruelty and leads to the destruction. Here author wants to describe that from the day we are born to the day we die the inevitability of evilness lies in us, holding and at the correct circumstance, that devil can be unleashed.
