    The conch represents order and society. It is also the symbol of speech amongst the boys which also shows democracy and organisation. The fire represents their hope of being rescued, and survival. Piggy’s glasses represent common sense and intelligence. Also, as they were being used to start the fire, they also represent hope. When they break, it also represents the link between the old and new world being broken. The beast represents the fear and danger on the island. It also shoes that the boys are just children as they are fearful of something that doesn’t exsit. Hope I helped :)
