Since it was first published in 1954, William Golding's classic debut novel has remained a stark allegory of civilization, survival, and human nature. As dystopian stories like Hunger Games and Battle Royale surge in popularity, this haunting tale of a group of young boys stranded on a desert island still captivates schoolchildren around the world, raising timeless and profound questions about how easily society can slip into chaos and savagery when rules and order have been abandoned. When a plane crashes on a remote island, a small group of schoolboys are the sole survivors. From the prophetic Simon and virtuous Ralph to the lovable Piggy and brutish Jack, each of the boys attempts to establish control as the reality- and brutal savagery-of their situation sets in. A teacher himself, Golding clearly understood how to interest children with a gripping story and strong, sympathetic characters. The novel serves as a catalyst for thought-provoking discussion and analysis of universal issues, not only concerning the capabilities of humans for good and evil and the fragility of moral inhibition, but beyond. The boys' struggle to find a way of existing in a community with no fixed boundaries invites readers to evaluate the concepts involved in social and political constructs and moral frameworks. Symbolism is strong throughout, revealing both the boys' capacity for empathy and hope, as well as illuminating the darkest corners of the human spirit. Ideas of community, leadership, and the rule of law are called into question as the reader has to consider who has a right to power, why, and what the consequences of the acquisition of power may be. Often compared to Catcher in the Rye, Lord of the Flies also represents a coming-of-age story of innocence lost.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2, Universität Duisburg-Essen (Anglistik), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der folgenden Arbeit möchte ich darstellen ob und in wie fern man William Goldings Roman Lord of the Flies als eine Modernisierung von Daniel Defoes Robinson Crusoe ansehen kann und die unterschiedlichen Zielsetzungen und Vorgehensweisen darstellen. Als notwendiger Zwischenschritt hierzu hat sich die Behandlung von Robert Michael Ballantynes Roman The Coral Island erwiesen, da sich dieser Roman sozusagen als Brücke zwischen Robinson Crusoe und Lord of the Flies anzusehen ist. Hierzu werde ich zunächst auf die allgemeine Theorie der Robinsonade eingehen und die grundlegenden Elemente die sie definieren darstellen. Dabei werde ich mich hauptsächlich auf Erhard Reckwitzs hervorragendes Buch Die Robinsonade1 beziehen. Danach werde ich eine kurze Zusammenfassung der Biographien aller drei Autoren geben, gefolgt von einem Überblick über den zeitgeschichtlichen Hintergrund der Entstehung der Romane. Darauf wird eine kurze Darstellung der Handlung der Romane folgen. Im nächsten Teil werde ich mich dem Stil, der Sprache und der Struktur der Romane widmen. Schließlich werde ich mich dann mit den Charakteren und zwei der zentralen Themen Natur und Zivilisation in den Romanen beschäftigen. In einem abschließenden Fazit werde ich dann alle Ergebnisse zusammenfassen. Bei Robinson Crusoe werde ich mich auf den ersten Teil beschränken, da die Farther Adventures bzw. die Reflections nichts mit dem Inselabenteuer zu tun haben.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar), course: Cinematic (Re-) Creation, 26 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: This paper investigates some of the key aspects of "Lord of the Flies," such as characterisation, narration, and symbolism. It discusses some of the philosophical theories which the novel is based on (i.e. Hobbes, Rousseau). Furthermore the book's role as an anti-robinsonade will be taken into account. The second part of the paper will contrast the novel against the filmic adaptation by Harry Hook and point out some parallels and differences between the two pieces of work., abstract: Lord of the Flies was first published in 1954 and from then on has been read by millions of pupils, students and adults. Today the book is still popular as it deals with a subject that is timeless and fundamental: the human struggle between civilisation and the savage instinct. The book is a fable showing how the inherent evil in man's nature threatens order in a society. Golding uses an allegorical story to illustrate this threat to civilisation. Because of it's timeless topic and because it is an ideal showcase for allegorical structure and literary analysis the novel has been dealt with in numerous school lessons and university courses. This paper gives an overview of some aspects of Lord of the Flies which are important for understanding the text and interpreting the film. I will first investigate how the characters are presented in the book and comment on some narrative aspects. I will then go on to discuss the role of the book as an anti-robinsonade in the historical context of the English novel. I will also point out some philosophical aspects of Lord of the Flies. I am going to focus on aspects of the view of human nature as argued by Thomas Hobbes in his book The Leviathan and contrast it against the philosophy of Jean Jacq
