Lord of the Flies
…The ground was hardened by an accustomed tread and as Jack rose to his full height he heard something moving on it. He swung back his right arm and hurled the spear with all his strength. (3.5)
[Jack] tried to convey the compulsion to track down and kill that was swallowing him up.
"I went on. I thought, by myself—"
The madness came into his eyes again.
"I thought I might kill." (3.37-40)
[Jack] began to dance and his laughter became a bloodthirsty snarling. (4.33)
