Kids are evil Don t you know I ve just finished rereading this book for my book club but, to be honest, I ve liked it ever since my class were made to read it in high school Overall, Lord of the Flies doesn t seem to be very popular, but I ve always liked the almost Hobbesian look at the state of nature and how humanity behaves when left alone without societal rules and structures Make the characters all angel faced kids with sadistic sides to their personality and what do you have Just your Kids are evil Don t you know I ve just finished rereading this book for my book club but, to be honest, I ve liked it ever since my class were made to read it in high school Overall, Lord of the Flies doesn t seem to be very popular, but I ve always liked the almost Hobbesian look at the state of nature and how humanity behaves when left alone without societal rules and structures Make the characters all angel faced kids with sadistic sides to their personality and what do you have Just your average high school drama, but set on a desert island With a bitbloody murder But not that much.In 1954, when this book was published, Britain was in the process of being forced to face some harsh realities that it had blissfully chosen to ignore beforehand that it is not, in fact, the centre of the universe, and the British Empire was not a thing of national pride, but an embarrassing infringement on the freedom and rights of other human beings Much of British colonialism had been justified as a self righteous mission to educate and modernise foreign savages So when put into its historical context, alongside the decolonisation movements, this book could be said to be an interesting deconstruction of white, Western supremacy Of course, to a modern reader there s a lot of racism in this book The racial aspect is a big factor Golding establishes from the very first page that Ralph is a perfect white, blonde haired, blue eyed, private school boy And Piggy even asksWhich is better to be a pack of painted n s like you are or to be sensible like Ralph isI m not going to argue with anyone s interpretation, but I think there is actually room to see this book as a criticism of racism For me, I always saw it as Golding challenging the notion of savages being dark skinned, uneducated people from rural areas With this book, he says screw that, I ll show you savagesand proceeds to show us how these private school silver spoon little jewels of the empire are no better for their fancy education and gold plated upbringing.I think that seemed especially clear from the ending when the officer saysI should have thought that a pack of British boys you re all British, aren t you would have been able to put up a better show than thatGolding s way of saying that human nature is universal and no one can escape it.Some readers say that you have to have quite a negative view of human nature already to appreciate this book, but I don t think that s true I m not sure I necessarily agree with all the implications running around in the novel namely, the failure of democracy and the pro authority stance but it serves as an interesting look at the dark side of human nature and how no one is beyond its reach Plus, anyone who had a bit of a rough time in high school will probably not find the events in this book a huge leap of the imagination The fascinating thing about Lord of the Flies is the way many historical parallels can be drawn from the messages it carries You could choose to view the charismatic and manipulative Jack Merridew as a kind of Hitler or other dictator who takes advantage of a group of people at their weakest Dictators and radicals often find it easy to slip in when a society is in chaos we do not have to assume that Golding believed that everyone everywhere is evil, only that we all have the capacity for it when we find ourselves in unstable situations.Still a fascinating book after all these years.Blog Facebook Twitter

can see why this book has had a lasting effect on social commentary since it s initial publishing The overlying illustration of how easily man can devolve back to his feral instincts is striking, yet could have been infinitesimallyeffective in the hands of a decent writer See, I would have cared a bitabout the little island society of prepubescent boys and their descent into barbarism if you know, any of the characters had been developed AT ALL Instead, we re thrown interchangeable names of interchangeable boys who are only developed enough to conform to the basic archetypes Golding requires to hobble his little story along The Leader, The Rebel, The Fat Kid, The Nose Picker, etc Were he born in this time, I believe Golding would have done brilliantly as a scriptwriter for reality TV And the plot There s a plot I m guessing so, since things seem to happen, but it s kind of hard to tell since he spends pages describing irrelevant events that are never incorporated, characters that possibly exist yet probably don t, and using words that don t mean what he thinks they mean And as the main characters are a bunch of kids not worth caring about, thus goes the way of the story.And the prose Dear God, the prose Get it away It burns us So yeah, this book sucked It had potential There were even a few parts I internally squealed at in hopeful anticipation But whatever potential it did have was hopelessly squandered by a man who wrote like he d never written anything before in his life Don t waste your time This book is horrifying I m scared like hell Totally.I was expecting an adventure

by various sightings of a monster in the island No, don t think about Lost because this is way different.No wonder I had goosebumps at the end, because this book is so true to what happens in the world today When men tried to govern themselves and started the whole process with goodwill inside , but blinded with egotism and lust for power, tragedy and destruction in society are inevitable.Human nature is corrupt, it only takes a trivial thing to make its nature controlled by nothing but malice This book represents a perfect allegory for men Culture fails repeatedly and no matter how hard we can repress it, nothing will ever stop the drive to become savages.Despite its length and easy to read narration, this is certainly one of the most haunting, powerful books I ve ever read Now I know why this book is listed in so many lists of greatest books in the 20th century

Sir William Gerald Golding was a British novelist, poet, and playwright best known for his 1954 novel Lord of the Flies Golding spent two years in Oxford focusing on sciences however, he changed his educational emphasis to English literature, especially Anglo Saxon.During World War II, he was part of the Royal Navy which he left five years later His bellic experience strongly influenced his future novels Later, he became a teacher and focused on writing Some of his influences are classical Greek literature, such as Euripides, and The Battle of Maldon, an Anglo Saxon oeuvre whose author is unknown.The attention given to Lord of the Flies, Golding s first novel, by college students in the 1950s and 1960s drove literary critics attention to it He was awarded the Booker Prize for literature in 1980 for his novel Rites of Passage, the first book of the trilogy To the Ends of the Earth He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983 and was knighted in 1988.In 2008, The Times ranked Golding third on their list of The 50 greatest British writers since 1945.
