Summary

Summary

After witnessing the violence commited by both sides of the conflict during World War II while serving in the British Royal Navy, William Golding returned to England with the conviction that humanity was fundamentally sick. After the war, Golding explored this belief while writing his first and most famous novel, Lord of the Flies. The novel's challenging themes and Golding's well-crafted writing made Lord of the Files one of the most popular and critically addressed books of the twentieth century.
