What does the double sharpened spears symbolize in the Lord of the Flies?
that jack is going to cut off ralphs head and feed it to the "MONSTER"
The regular sticks in Lord of the Flies were spears. They were probably made by Jack who had a knife. The spears represented savage nature. The spears were used to hunt pigs but also to hurt and kill humans, like Ralph. The two-pointed stick was meant for the pig head. One point would go into the head and the other point would be stuck in the ground. Before the hunt for Ralph started, Samneric warned…
Well, they use the first sharpened stick to put the pig's head on. They don't actually do anything with the second stick, but they planned to kill Ralph and stick him on there, just like the Lord of the Flies. Luckily for him, the naval officer came and the suspenseful chase through the woods is ended.
He tells him to "sharpen a stick at both ends." This may symbolize that what was previously there (one side of law/order/good, etc. and the other side of chaos/savagery/evil, etc), has now been replaced by just the side of chaos/savagery/evil... Hence the stick being sharpened at "both ends." Hope this helps :)
