Lord of the Flies (SparkNotes Literature Guide Series) ..
This is the real allusion that Golding is wanting. The book has three characters: Ralph, Jack, and Peterkin. The use of Ralph and Jack in Lord of the Flies is done on purpose. In this book, the three protagonists are civilized British boys that get shipwrecked and land on an island. Despite the fact that they are surrounded by savages, they stay civilized. Golding wants to show the opposite in his book. This book is alluded to twice. The next one comes at the end of the book. It will be a test question!
Famous William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies was written in 1954
The author of Lord of the Flies, William Golding, was born September 19, 1911 and died June 19, 1993. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He fought in World War II in the Royal Navy (British) and was part of the sinking of the Germany battleship, the Bismarck (this is a very famous ship). He also stormed the beach in Normandy on D-Day. He spent most of his life teaching and writing. It seems all authors have some scandal or oddity and Golding is no different. When he was 18 he attempted to rape a 15 year old girl, but was unsuccessful.
