Dramatic changes occurred after the tribe killed Simon. Savage Piggy blamed the murder on Simon himself for crawling around at night.
But civil Piggy would have blamed the murder on the boys and himself and would have brought it up constantly.
By the end of the book piggy was not what he was in the begging he changed dramatically from being loquacious about what he knew to being loquacious and just rabbling. He also brought the civilization of england onto the island. If Piggy had not been on the island I think the book would have been different.

Simon trying to find his happy nature spot, but witnessed the pigs head on a stake. Seeming as if it comes to life, the head speaks to him declaring he's lord of the flies. He threatens Simon that he will never be able to escape from him.
Terrified, Simon faints in the jungle (Lord of the Flies, ). See if any of these jog your memory about what Piggy is like. The, write about how that quote shows the character trait you believe he embodies. Another possibility, one I recommend, is to highlight interesting quotes as you read, using a different color for each character.
In Lord of the Flies, British schoolboys are stranded on a tropical island. In an attempt to recreate the culture they left behind, they elect Ralph to lead, with the intellectual Piggy as counselor. Although Lord of the Flies is a novel which explores some of the darker aspects of human nature, I think there are many positive aspects of human nature presented here too: Look closely at the characters and roles of Ralph and Piggy, for example.
