How Does Piggy Die in Lord of the Flies?


Piggy dies in Chapter 11 of Lord of the Flies. This happens when he and Ralph had gone to the Castle Rock to try and talk to Jack to get him to give back Piggy's glasses. Jack and Ralph fight and Roger shoves a large rock down the mountainside. Ralph dives out of the way when he hears the rock but the rock strikes Piggy. It shatters the conch shell he was holding, and knocks Piggy off the mountainside and onto the rocks below. This results in his death.
