Golding's book about the fall of society and how humans are really animals at heart and when all rules are removed, the "beast" is let loose. The book is full of metaphors, For example the title "The Lord of The Flies" means Satan. The title was originally "Strangers From Within" this again represents how fragile human society is and how different we all are when we rules are removed. There is a lot of mention in the book to the "beast" this again is just another form of satan and how he can corrupt man- eventually making the character Jack to go mad and lead the rest of the tribe to kill Simon and Piggy and attempt at killing Ralph.
Notes on characters-
Simon= he understands whats going on and attempts to stop it. This leads to his death.
Jack-the leader of the "tribe" he goes mad attempting to destroy the beast-which leads to him becoming the beast incarnate.
