The Lord of The Flies In Lord Of The Flies William Golding used a group of boys stranded on a tropical island to illustrate the how malicious nature of mankind is - if it is let free Lord of the Flies dealt with changes that the boys underwent as they gradually adapted to the isolated freedom from society In my opinion Golding superbly captured the essence of what the thoughts of different types of young children would be if they were to be put on an isolated island At the start of the story we were introduced to Piggy and Ralph These two provided us with a background to their current position The way that this information was revealed ie through Ralph and Piggys conversation about the past appealed to me as a very affective way of providing us with the background information It not only served its basic purpose but it also gave us an idea of how well these two people were interacting and whether if they were getting along or not Very early in the book it was stated that Piggy had asthma and thus he was prohibited from vigorous exercises Ralphs reaction to this was in a manner that made obvious to me that he got more freedom than Piggy at home and thus he was probably a more spoiled child too which was later proved A quote from this conversation that I believe really defined this whole chapter and gave the story a sense of realism of the situation was the line that Piggy said Nobody dont know were here Till this point the chapters main purpose was to provide the reader with background information as an introduction to the main plot and this sentence did the job very well It also showed traces of fear of not being rescued already developing inside Piggy Later on Piggy found a conch shell which he thought of using like a trumpet
