Lord Of The Flies By William Golding

Docent Michael Rader

Title: I chose this picture for the title slide because it represents a part of the book that is very important. This important event was the battle between Ralph and Jack that resulted in Ralph rolling down a hill to see a naval officer looking down at him.
Selected Epigraph: "Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men." - Ayn Rand. Spears can represent a weapon that the savages or other boys used to hunt for Ralph at the end of the book.
Theme: From the killing of Piggy to pig ritual dances, there is not doubt that the universal theme in this book is savagery. The picture represents savagery because all of the men are killing the one outlier.
Tone: Greedy is the tone throughout the book because of the lack of food and the scarcity of everything needed for human life. If I were stranded on an island wit many boys, I bet I would be greedy too. My picture is a soup kitchen because they have to ration foods to the homeless or needy.
Historical Setting: The setting of this book takes place on a deserted island in the Pacific. It takes place during a nuclear war, and the boys are leaving England because of the threat of the war. I can visualize the english boys on the island in the picture.
Text-To-Self Connection: When I was younger, I had to have my mom with me everywhere. I cried on the first day of Kindergarten because I missed my mom. This relates to a character in the book named Piggy who always says how he misses he auntie, which is his legal guardian. The boy in this picture reminds me of Piggy and he looks very sad.
