Lord of the Flies

Character - Test

As you know, it is important to use quotations in your writing to support your ideas about the characters.

Match these quotations to the character who says them or whom they refer to.

"[He] was a bore; his fat, his matter-of-fact ideas were dull: but there was always a little pleasure to be got by pulling his leg."


"The mask compelled them."


"Understand? We are going to have fun on this island!"


"Which is better - to have rules and to agree, or to hunt and kill?"
