Lord of the Flies

William Golding's classic tale about a group of English schoolboys who are plane-wrecked on a deserted island is just as chilling and relevant today as when it was first published in 1954.

Lord of the Flies is a highly intriguing novel that explores the dark side of human nature.

Lord of the Flies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lord of the Flies is a 1954 novel by Nobel Prize-winning English author William Golding about a group of British boys stuck on an uninhabited island who try to govern themselves with disastrous results. Its stances on the already controversial subjects of human nature and individual welfare versus the common good earned it position 68 on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 1900–1999. The novel is a reaction to the youth novel The Coral Island by R. M. Ballantyne.
