Critical analysis of The Lord of the Flies by William Golding
When we examining the wanton crimes of modern society as illustrated through the media, wars, acts of terrorism, the starving children, and runaway injustices, it is evident that evil has become a segment of modern society. It need to be understood that evil is not an outside force; but it is a force within each individual. We have both good attributes and mistakes. In this case, man has to control these mistakes so as to be a good individual. Hence, in the novel Lords of the Flies, the author attempts to tackle this same element of evil existing within his characters.
