Role in the Book

Robert is an island boy from Lord of the Flies.


Robert's role is not too deeply explored, and is a minor character compared to other ones. Robert joined Jack's tribe in Chapter 8 and was a hunter. Robert's main role is when he is nearly fatally maimed by the hunters during a simulation of a pig hunt, but he was able to convince them to stop before he could be killed. It is believed that he survived at the end of the book.
