What happens to the bodies of Piggy and Simon?

Asked by Rene Baxter

Simon’s body is slowly washed out to sea with illuminating creatures surrounding it. Golding’s imagery suggests the sea creatures formed a halo around his figure as he is quietly swept into the open sea. In contrast, Piggy’s burial scene is callous and unsympathetic.
