During The Post-War Years The Experimental Tendency In British Novel Continued, But The Critics Lamented That The Mid-Twentieth Century British Literature Produced No Ulysses. William Golding S Lord Of The Flies (1954) Was Accepted As An Experiment With The Restoration Of Fable In English Fiction, A Reconstruction At An Adult Level Of R.M. Ballantyne S Coral Island. Thanks To The Nobel Prize Awarded To Golding In 1983, Lord Of The Flies Came To The Limelight And Its Underlying Philosophy Has Been Variously Interpreted Since Then. In The Face Of An Upsurge In Golding Criticism, And More Specifically, In Lord Of The Flies, The Novel Demands Fresh Discussions.

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.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin (Institut fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: HS Das Bose: Philosophische Aspekte, 23 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Roman Lord of the Flies (1954) ist wohl das bekannteste und erfolgreichste Buch William Goldings. Das bis heute andauernde Interesse an dieser Robinsonade lasst sich sicherlich nicht nur darauf zuruckfuhren, dass das Werk aus literaturkritischerc Sicht von Interesse ist, sondern auch darauf, dass sich in ihm soziologische, psychologische und theologische Aspekte zu einem Ganzen verdichten. Wie in vielen seiner spateren Romane benutzt Golding auch hier Sprache und Bilder um das Erschreckende, Mysteriose, Nicht-Rationale in der menschlichen Natur aufzuzeichnen. Dabei fasziniert ihn besonders die Vorstellung des Bosen als inharenten Bestandteils des menschlichen Charakters. Wie bei vielen anderen Menschen, ist die Uberzeugung, dass Vernunft, Bildung und Zivilisation sichere Barrieren gegen das Bose sind, unmittelbar nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg auch bei Golding zerstort. An die Moglichkeit, dass ein Gesellschaftssystem den Menschen moralisch perfektionieren kann, glaubt er nicht mehr. Viel eher kommt er zu der Uberzeugung, dass das Bose nicht durch aussere Faktoren wie Umwelt, Erziehung oder Gesellschaft hervorgerufen wird, sondern "the only enemy of man is inside himself." Diese Idee vom Bosen als Wesenszug des Menschen, als treibende Kraft fur unser Tun und Handeln, als Ausloser fur Rassismus, Gewalt, und Krieg zwischen den Nationen, Geschlechtern und gegen Andersdenkende wird zu einem andauernden Konfliktthema in der Nachkriegsliteratur Englands. Vor diesem Hintergrund von Krieg und atomarer Bedrohung entsteht 1954 der Roman "Lord of the Flies." Es ist die Geschichte einer Gruppe von englischen Jungen, die nach einem Flugzeugabsturz auf einer einsamen Insel stranden, dort versuchen eine Gemein

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

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,7, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, course: Analysing Novels, language: English, abstract: The following term paper will be a comparison of Daniel Defoes Robinson Crusoe, which we discussed in class, and William Goldings Lord of the flies. For most literary scholars the latter definitely is a robinsonade, which is a general term used for narrations and novels written and published after Defoes Robinson Crusoe. For others it is not seen as such, and some just see parts of this genre in the novel. Even if the opinions differ, it is obvious that there is a certain nearness to the robinsonades. Some aspects of the novel might make it difficult to arrange it into this genre. Conspicuous is that the different contributions are not drawn upon the same basics. The question that arises is: What is a robinsonade? This question is answered in different ways by the critics, so that this seems to be the real problem. There are considerations to this topic, which strongly lean on Daniel Defoes novel "Robinson Crusoe," and which see the structure and aspects of this work not as a basis but as a guideline. Next to this there are other theories, which have a more unattached usage of this topic. They both have in common that there is no general consensus about a definition or a hold onto special criteria. In the first part of my term paper I want to give a brief overview of the character of the robinsonade, the features of the genre, and I will present some examples I have chosen from the ocean of robinsonades that already exist. I will not refer to Defoes "Robinson Crusoe" in this part as much as I would like to, because this would blast my term paper. In the second part I will analyse Goldings "Lord of the flies" in the respect of the worked out criteria, to find out whether it is a robinsonade or not. For this I will also have a deeper look in Defoe"
