A review of the passage from the book lord of the flies

Lord Of The Flies / Pincher Martin / Rites Of Passage

Mar 05, 2018 KimmGr rated it it was amazing I picked this up in a secondhand shop: I re-read Lord of the Flies after decades, and found it terrifying! I had forgotten the level of violence in it, and marvelled that we give this novel to schoolchildren. And then for the first time I went on to the other Golding novels - I'll add a note about those on the relevant pages.

I went on to read more about the man himself. His five years of wartime service in the Navy traumatised him in some way, it seems, and the sea f I picked this up in a secondhand shop: His five years of wartime service in the Navy traumatised him in some way, it seems, and the sea features in all three stories.

He suffered from nightmares for many years - I hope one day his dream journal will be published. Although each book is approached in a highly original way, each is a nightmare brought to life. The first and the third of these show what a mob can do to an individual, as does The Spire, which I've read since.

I have read the magic book twice, in the unabridged format.

Then I saw a documentary on the book and at least part of a film version, if not two. The last version is an adapted play for the National Radio, which is nothing to compare with the original but still helpful.

Lord of the Flies

Some books lose everything when placed on stage, others cannot make it there and for most of all I can say that they help me in a few ways: They remind me of the plot, characters and other aspects that have slipped away.

Then, for the favorite books it would be ideal to read them again and again, but having only so much time and so many worthy books, one cannot read all of them at the same time. He was saying that the main message of the book refers to the necessity of rules and what happens when rules break down and with them the whole fabric of society. The fabulous author mentions other aspects, such as the absence of girls.

If I remember well, he mentioned the fact that sex will have to come into the frame and he did not want that. As I listened to the adapted play this morning, I was thinking that a great book is wonderful because it gives you so many ways to interpret messages, there are so many venues that you can explore.

Lord of the Flies makes this point very well. In the book, we are dealing with children, but they may also represent a kind of an early age of man, who has framed some rules, but is basically still an animal, when he arrives to an island, when he is not constrained somehow.

  • This student's post it interprets both sides;
  • Ralph stood, one hand against a grey trunk, and screwed up his eyes against the shimmering water;
  • At least I think it's an island;
  • He climbed over a broken trunk and was out of the jungle;

Under the communist regime, the law was that of the jungle or the one described in Animal Farm: Once we escaped formal communism, we have started to change the rules, but they are still ignored and you can see that just by looking at how people drive and how leaders steal.

Not with the mattress full of dollars, but wiping out forests which they take from the people they are supposed to guide and protect. This brings me to another parallel I saw between the Lord of the Flies and life around me. In the book there is a life and death dispute between two leaders: Ralph is the voice of reason, a boy with fears and shortcomings, but concerned and caring for others, worried about the fire which needs to stay burning in order to let passing ships know that they are on the island.

He is wise, brave and compassionate. Jack is the evil personage, causing havoc and mayhem, responsible for at least one death, violent and brutal. He leads a gang of boys who have turned into a cruel mob.

  • All round him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat;
  • He leads a gang of boys who have turned into a cruel mob;

  • He came forward, searching out safe lodgments for his feet, and then looked up through thick spectacles.

We have presidential elections in a couple of weeks and Ralph and Jack have equivalents in the race: Jack is Ponta, the head of a gang of good fellas, wise guys bent on getting obscenely rich by stealing, willing to do anything to get the power and stay out of jail, by means of creating the above mentioned laws: He makes mistakes, but overall he represents a chance for a better future.

Johannis is different, with his calm and dignified presence, he does not talk much but that is for the better. Like in Lord of The Flies: Finally, a short description of the book out of the comedy series Two and a Half Men:
