Oliver Goldsmith She Stoops to Conquer:
Being a kind of parody for books of R. Summary In times of an unnamed war, a plane crash brings a group of British boys to a paradise-like tropical island, where they try to survive.
Their conversation allows to conclude that they were on an evacuation plane with some other kids when it was attacked. They suppose that someone else could have survived the fall, so practical Piggy insists that they all should have a meeting and make a list of names. They work together to get it, and Ralph tries to blow it.
After several attempts he manages to get it going and make a tremendous sound, heard for several miles around. A sound like this would surely be heard and any plane crash survivors on this island should soon come to find out about it.
Ralph continues to blow the conch and boys start emerging from the jungle one by one; their age varies from six to twelve.
They gather in a comfortable place under palm trees and rest on fallen trunks. At last a whole chorus appears, keeping straight line and disciplined. It is led by Jack Merridew, another prominent character of the novel. He is a zealot of discipline and maintains it in his chorus even in these extreme circumstances.
Even the fainting of one of the chorus members, Simon, does not distract him from his commander task. But kids decide to vote and simple raise of hands brings victory to Ralph.

Jack even gladly states that the chorus should become an army or hunters. Ralph, Jack and Simon go to investigate the island, for nobody knows if this is an island at all. Piggy tries to follow them, but is sent back.
Three explorers have a joyous walk, and climb the pink granite mountain top; now they know for sure that this is an uninhabited island. On their way back boys find a piglet stuck in creepers and Jack is ready to kill it with his knife, but the piglet manages to get free and escapes.
Everybody is bewildered, imaging the blood-spilling as something enormous. Jack starts to boast that he was just choosing the right place and next time he would kill a pig. Ralph and Simon agree, trying to conceal their own bewilderment.
Three explorers tell other kids about their discoveries. Ralph start to develop the major rules of behavior on the island. Jack looks happy when he hears about rules and discipline. A conch becomes a symbol of power, and the one who holds it can speak without interruption from anyone but Ralph.
Piggy takes the conch and points out that nobody knows their location, and thus they may spend quite a long time on the island. He claims that he saw it in the night. Judging by description, it was only a nightmare, but boys are immediately immersed in a discussion of this issue.
This naturally leads to thoughts about rescue, and Ralph makes an essential proposition about the smoke signal. They should make a fire at some high point, so smoke will attract the attention of any ship passing by, and they all will be rescued.
Jack immediately goes to mountain top to build a fire; boys are enthusiastic about this, so they follow him. Ralph is trying to maintain some order but quickly fails and follows the others.
The fire quickly burns out. Jack proposes his hunters as fire tenders. Piggy notices that they have started a forest fire and scolds others.
At this moment Ralph, bewildered, blames Piggy for not watching little ones, and Piggy, tired, retorts that he does not even know their number, because they keep scattering to play, swim or eat some fruits. Finally boys decide that small kids had just returned to pink granite platform.
He wants to hunt, but due to the fact that he does not succeed in it, everybody is skeptical about it. Ralph is not an exception; at the same time, he is busy with building shelters on the beach and tending the signal fire.
However, Ralph is confused too: Others and involved in their fun and games. Jack insists on the need to hunt, and Ralph is firm in his decision to keep the signal fire and build shelters.
Later we find out that Simon has a secret place where he spends some time alone. He is careful at not being followed, so he diverts small kids by helping them to pick fruits and then goes into the midst of jungle, where vines form some sort of cozy cradle.Some tropes, such as the Unreliable Narrator, ensure that the audience is never quite as well informed of the truth as the characters are (or, at least, one particular character).
