After reading Lord of the Flies, I learned one lesson and one lesson only. That lesson is tried to cope with everyone as much as possible when you are in a situation like this. You don’t know what kind of situation like this. You don’t know what kind people of you are dealing with or what crazy thoughts are running through their head. I also learned that After reading this book I realized that it’s safe to watch the people around you because they may seem okay but you can have the slightest idea on what they are up to , and also if you’re in a confrontational situation with someone try to work it out in a peaceful manner because in the book they showed how some of the characters were dying for small things considered to be nothing. This book could have been much more peaceful if the kids knew how to get along and weren’t so gullible. Instead the kids all had to give their 2 cents which resulted in a lot of people dying over nothing. The problem and conflict in Lord of the Flies started with a group of young boys’ airplane crashing into a jungle. Throughout the story these boys with different personalities try to cope along with one another in hope of survival and being rescued. As always, everybody didn’t see eye to eye on each decision being made so much conflict took place. The way Golding decided to solve their problem was to turn each kid on one to the point where they were all dead. The story takes place on an island. This island isn’t specifically located on map but vividly detailed by the author on how the island looked. He said it was a located in a jungle. The ocean was in plain sight and there were many Rocky Mountains. In the beginning of the book it states how the plane crashed on the island during the mist of a war that was occurring at the same time , and on the plane were was group of Britain boys there were two boys by the names of Ralph, Piggy, Jack , and Simon. Ralph was the leader of the group at first the boys were enjoying this time because there weren’t any adults on the trip of this time so they took advantage of it, and one day when a ship passed by there were all in horror because of it Not long after the meeting, some military planes engage in a battle high above the island. The boys, asleep below, do not notice the flashing lights and explosions in the clouds. This book simply reminded me when I was in elementary school and I was going to Murphy Candler and the school day was over , my friend Chelsea and I were on the bus and I guess it had been a long day at school because we both fell asleep on the bus , so after the bus driver had dropped off the last group of kids, and was heading back to the school to drop the bus driver as the she was cleaning the bus and found us two still asleep on the bus and our parents were looking for that whole afternoon. If I was the author of the book Lord of the Flies I would create a ending little different. I don’t think the boys should have died in the book they way that they did I would keep them alive because I don’t like death but I know one day we all are going to have to face it soon or later , but I would also make the book more…

A running theme in Lord of the Flies is that man is savage at heart, always ultimately reverting back to an evil and primitive nature. The cycle of man's rise to power, or righteousness, and his inevitable fall from grace is an important point that book proves again and again, often comparing man with characters from the Bible to give a more vivid picture of his descent. Lord Of The Flies symbolizes this fall in different manners, ranging from the illustration of the mentality of actual primitive…
Lord of the Flies
In Lord of the Flies the boys are stripped of the boundaries that civilization and society bring and savagery takes over while the evil inside each boy is unleashed. Through the deaths of Piggy and Simon, it becomes obvious that there is no more intellect and morality on the island, and savagery has become more prominent and stronger than civilization. In Simon’s death we see that the boys were so focused on hunting, and killing is second nature to them as they murder Simon thinking…

Knowing one’s evil: William Golding’s “Lord of the Flies”
Since human conscience began, civilization has been built on law and figures of power. Structured society relies on rules with humans naturally conditioned by their own restrictions, contrasting an unsuccessful barbaric, savage or primitive way of life. With the loss of restraint, there would be no stopping humans descent into madness—with a lack of punishment and order, there is a lack of…
How does Golding portray his ideas in the Lord of the flies?
Golding portrays the disagreement between the two boys from the start of the book, during the time when they dispute between who should become the leader, which creates a small anecdote of the smaller world that we have today in society.
The beginning of chapter 3 starts with Golding hinting to us that the boys are starting to become less civilised, and becoming more savage, as for Jack, “eyes in this frustration seemed bolting and nearly…

In Lord of the Flies, the basic setting and characters parallel the Garden of Eden. In the story, a group of boys crash land in a beautiful and peaceful island paradise that directly resembles…
