As provocative and engaging as it was when first published in 1954, Nobel Prize winner William Golding’s “Lord of the Flies” continues to hold court in classrooms to this day.
“What are we? Humans? Or animals? Or savages?”
When a plane carrying a group of British schoolboys crashes on an uncharted island, the boys must find a way to survive amongst each other – isolated from society, without adult supervision, completely and totally on their own. What follows is shocking to say the least, as this seemingly fun escape soon takes a harsh downward spiral – societal structures collapse around the boys as they struggle to stay alive, even turning against each other to do so.
A fascinating yet eerie tale that takes a strong stance on the subjects of human nature, groupthink and individuality, and the fear of the ‘beast’ that dwells within us all, Lord of the Flies takes readers on an allegorical rollercoaster – one that has kept audiences hooked for over 60 years.
