Know the process of discovering the beastie. Know what they think it is and the notes for chapter 6 that detail the surface, symbolic and psychological aspects.

At first the mulberry boy thought is was a snake thing. Then they think it's from the water. When the dead parachutist falls from the sky they think it's the beast from the air. The beast changes a lot in Lord of the Flies. When Jack attacks Ralph, he is showing signs of the beast. When Simon meets the beast's offering (the Lord of the Flies) we find out what the real beast is. We discover that the beast is the evil, the fear that lives inside the boys. They control the beast. As time went on the beast prevailed more, because the boys lost touch with society. They turned to savagery, fear took over, and evil came out in all of the boys.
