Lord of the Flies

by William Golding E. L. Epstein

Before The Hunger Games there was Lord of the Flies <P><P>Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. <P><P>Though critically acclaimed, it was largely ignored upon its initial publication. <P>Yet soon it became a cult favorite among both students and literary critics who compared it to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye in its influence on modern thought and literature. <P>William Golding's compelling story about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island has become a modern classic. <P>At first it seems as though it is all going to be great fun; but the fun before long becomes furious and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death. <P>As ordinary standards of behaviour collapse, the whole world the boys know collapses with them--the world of cricket and homework and adventure stories--and another world is revealed beneath, primitive and terrible. <P>Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.
