William Golding s Lord of the Flies Book Description:

During The Post-War Years The Experimental Tendency In British Novel Continued, But The Critics Lamented That The Mid-Twentieth Century British Literature Produced No Ulysses. William Golding S Lord Of The Flies (1954) Was Accepted As An Experiment With The Restoration Of Fable In English Fiction, A Reconstruction At An Adult Level Of R.M. Ballantyne S Coral Island. Thanks To The Nobel Prize Awarded To Golding In 1983, Lord Of The Flies Came To The Limelight And Its Underlying Philosophy Has Been Variously Interpreted Since Then. In The Face Of An Upsurge In Golding Criticism, And More Specifically, In Lord Of The Flies, The Novel Demands Fresh Discussions. The Present Book Seeks To Acquaint The Readers First With The Theme Of The Novel, And Then With The Discourses Invited By The Theme.A Detailed Analysis Of Each Of The Chapters Of The Novel Is The Special Attraction Of This Critical Study. It Is Not Just A Summary, But A Critical Analysis Of The Events, Symbols, Images And Reflections Of The Characters Introduced In The Novel. The Chapter-Wise Discussion Will Inspire The Readers To Go Through The Original Text Thoroughly For Having A First Hand Knowledge Of Golding S Art. It Will Also Help The Readers To Develop An Understanding Of Golding As A Novelist Even Before Reading The Original Text.The Chapters On Golding S Concept Of Evil And The Innate Depravity Of Man, Potential Savagery Of Children, Sin And Expiation, The Post-World War Scenario And Elements Of Post-Colonial Writing Are Designed To Project Lord Of The Flies As A Post-Colonial Novel Of Ideas. The Book Also Contains Separate Chapters On Narrative Skill, Characterization, Plot And Structure Which Are Helpful For The Students. The Discussion Is Marked By A Critical Insight That Serves Not Only The Advanced Scholars But Also The Common Students Who Will Be Benefited By The Lucid Presentation.

Quicklet on Lord of the Flies by William Golding Book Description:

ABOUT THE BOOK What do you think of when you picture a group of 6 to 12-year old boys? How do you imagine their behaviors to be, and how do they interact with each other? Perhaps like most people, you may envision harmless, tame, typical playful and somewhat innocent boys, just content to play and be around each other instead of "the bossy, rule-establishing grown ups". However, you may be surprised to find quite a drastically different group of young boys in William Golding's Lord of the Flies, making the novel a successful, ”if not also controversial”work of art. Lord of the Flies, William Golding's first novel, was published in 1954. (www.nobelprize.org) Written in 12 chapters and in third-person narrative, it recounts the events surrounding a group of young English boys on a deserted island during World War II. Golding's own war experience comes through in the novel as themes of the human condition, good and evil, government, and innocence stand out in rather explicit ways. Indeed the concept of original sin comes into play as the boys gradually lose their innocence and generally give into chaos and madness. MEET THE AUTHOR A current San Francisco Bay Area resident, Natacha Pavlov has been an avid reader and writer since her early years spent growing up in Brussels, Belgium. She earned her B.A. in Comparative World Literature from San Francisco State University and constantly flirts with the notion of earning her Master's/PhD someday. She has French-English non-profit translation experience and looks forward to increasing her writing through various platforms in the near future. Although the list keeps growing, she has interest in reading and writing about classics, mythology (of any/all traditions), horror/gothic fiction, 18th and 19th century French novels, Middle Eastern history and politics (particularly Palestine-Israel) and early Christianity. Fueled by her culturally diverse heritage, her educational and personal interests have led her to engage in extensive travel and to live in places such as Paris, France and Jerusalem, Israel. Amidst all, pens, papers and books have always proven loyal companions. And she won't lie, chocolate has always helped too! She strives to keep exploring the world through books as well as further travel experiences that will ensure continued growth.
