Lord of the Flies

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Theme: THe most dangerous beast of all is fear.

Symbolism: The lord of the Flies

The L.O.T.F literally means a powerful demon in hell. The figurative meaning of the L.O.T.F. is the representation of the power of evil among the boys.The beast symbolizes the inner beast within all of the boys. The face paint symbolizes the boys trying to mask their humanity.

Character Development:SimonSimon is the peaceful one out of the boys. He is part of Ralph's tribe and acts as a source of wisdom for the boys. Simon is connected to the other boys by interacting with the littluns, by being a source of calmness to the boys, and by being able to rationally explain problems on the island.

Plot:A group of British school boys are stranded on a desert island without any adult supervision. At first they try to maintain some sense of civilization, but quickly give in to more primal instincts. These instincts grow stronger as the threat of an unknown beast sets in and consumes the boys with fear.

Setting:A desert island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. The setting is significant because it symbolizes an untouched paradise that provides everything the boys need to survive. The island setting affects the plot because even though the boys have everything they need to survive they are stranded without any contact to the civilized world.





The Leadership of the Island Tribe

The book takes place in an unspecified time period. It can easily be taking place in the present day, but evidence from the book says that it is taking place during a fictional atomic war. This means that it could be happening in the 1950s or 1960s.

RatingOur group thought the book was a great read. It was a compelling read and every chapter leaves you hungry for more. I would reccomend this book to friends and family.
