    Kids are evil Don't you know?I've just finished rereading this book for my book club but to be honest I've liked it ever since my class were made to read it in high school Overall Lord of the Flies doesn't seem to be very popular but I've always liked the almost Hobbesian look at the state of nature and how humanity behaves when left alone without societal rules an

    I read this book a long time ago long enough to where I barely remembered anything past the basic premise So I picked it up again only to wish I hadn't There's a reason why they teach this book in middle school in order to enjoy this book one's intellectual cognizance must be that of a child because otherwise you'll spend the entire time picking out everything that'

    “We did everything adults would do What went wrong?” For me this uote sums up the entire book It’s a powerful exploration of humanity and the wrongness of our society and it also demonstrates the hypocrisy of war Adults judge the behaviour of children but are they really any better? I think not The scary thing about this book is how real it is The Lord of the Fl

    508 Lord of the flies William GoldingLord of the Flies is a 1954 novel by Nobel Prize–winning British author William Golding The book focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their disastrous attempt to govern themselvesIn the midst of a wartime evacuation a British aeroplane crashes on or near an isolated island in a remote region of the Pacific Ocean The only survivors are boys in their middle childhood or preadolescence Two boys—the fair haired Ralph and an overweight bespectacled boy nicknamed Piggy—find a conch which Ralph uses as a horn to convene all the survivors to one area Ralph is optimistic believing that grownups will come to rescue them but Piggy realises the need to organise put first things first and act proper Because Ralph appears responsible for bringing all the survivors together he immediately commands some authority over the other boys and is uickly elected their chief He does not receive the votes of the members of a boys' choir led by the red headed Jack Merridew although he allows the choir boys to form a separate cliue of hunters Ralph establishes three primary policies to have fun to survive and to constantly maintain a smoke signal that could alert passing ships to their presence on the island and thus rescue them The boys establish a form of democracy by declaring that whoever holds the conch shall also be able to speak at their formal gatherings and receive the attentive silence of the larger groupJack organises his choir into a hunting party responsible for discovering a food source Ralph Jack and a uiet dreamy boy named Simon soon form a loose triumvirate of leaders with Ralph as the ultimate authority Upon inspection of the island the three determine that it has fruit and wild pigs for food The boys also use Piggy's glasses to create a fire Although he is Ralph's only real confidant Piggy is uickly made into an outcast by his fellow biguns older boys and becomes the butt of the other boys' jokes Simon in addition to supervising the project of constructing shelters feels an instinctive need to protect the littluns younger boysThe semblance of order uickly deteriorates as the majority of the boys turn idle; they give little aid in building shelters spend their time having fun and begin to develop paranoias about the island The central paranoia refers to a supposed monster they call the beast which they all slowly begin to believe exists on the island Ralph insists that no such beast exists but Jack who has started a power struggle with Ralph gains a level of control over the group by boldly promising to kill the creature At one point Jack summons all of his hunters to hunt down a wild pig drawing away those assigned to maintain the signal fire A ship travels by the island but without the boys' smoke signal to alert the ship's crew the vessel continues without stopping Ralph angrily confronts Jack about his failure to maintain the signal; in frustration Jack assaults Piggy breaking one of the lenses of his glasses The boys subseuently enjoy their first feast Angered by the failure of the boys to attract potential rescuers Ralph considers relinuishing his position as leader but is persuaded not to do so by Piggy who both understands Ralph's importance and fears what will become of him should Jack take total control عنوانها «سالار مگس ها»؛ «خداوندگار مگسها»؛ «بعل زبوب»؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ بهجت، ابتکار، افراشته، آپادانا، ابر سفید، رهنما، امیرکبیر؛ ادبیات انگلستان؛ تاریخ نخستین خوانش روز بیست و پنجم ماه اکتبر سال 2012میلادیعنوان سالار مگس ها ؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم حمید رفیعی؛ تهران، بهجت، 1353، در 372ص؛ چاپ سوم 1385؛ شابک 9646671918؛ موضوع داستانهای نویسندگان انگلیسی سده 20معنوان بعل زبوب ؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم محمود مشرف آزاد م آزاد؛ تهران، ابتکار، 1363، در 270ص؛ عنوان سالار مگس ها ؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم رضا دیداری؛ تهران، افراشته، 1363؛ در 282ص؛ عنوان سالار مگس ها؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم سوسن اردکانی شاهین؛ تهران، آپادانا، 1363؛ در 336ص؛ چاپ دیگر تهران، ابر سفید، 1390، در 327ص؛ شابک 9786009254552؛عنوان سالار مگسها؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم مژگان منصوری؛ تهران، پرگل، 1379؛ چاپ دیگر تهران، رهنما، 1382؛ در 443ص؛ شابک 9643670937؛ چاپ دیگر 1385؛ چاپ بعدی 1388؛ شابک 9789643670931؛عنوان خداوندگار مگس ها؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم جواد پیمان؛ تهران، امیرکبیر، چاپ دوم 1395؛ در 287ص؛ شابک 9789640018743؛از جمله آثار برجسته ی کلاسیک جهان، که «ویلیام گلدینگ» در آن؛ شور و هیجان را در یک قصه ی تمثیلی، با قدرت و صداقت توصیف کرده، داستان ماجرای شگفت آور گروهی پسر بچه است، در مدرسه ای انگلیسی، که در طی جنگ هسته ای و خانمانسوز، عازم منطقه ای امن میشوند؛ ولی سقوط هواپیما، آنها را ملزم به اقامت در جزیره ای استوایی میکند؛ در آغاز، همه چیز به خوبی پیش میرود، و آنها بی دغدغه و سبک بال، جزیره ی خوش آب و رنگ و سرسبز را، درمینوردند؛ اما اندک زمانی، پس از آن، شرارت و تندخویی پسرها، بهشت زمینی را، به دوزخی از آتش و خون، مبدل میکند، و تمامی مظاهر خرد و پاک اندیشی، از وجودشان رخت برمیبندد؛ کشمکش درونی نیروهای متضاد خیر و شر، درون مایه ی داستان را شکل میدهدتاریخ بهنگام رسانی 22061399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی

    ”They accepted the pleasures of morning the bright sun the whelming sea and sweet air as a time when play was good and life so full that hope was not necessary and therefore forgotten”So this was a book many people had to read when they went to school and in some way this already says a lot about “Lord of the Flies” Like so many of the books that are reuired to

You did everything adults would do That's what went wrongThere is much to be said against this novel and it has been said elouently poignantly many times Let me make a case for keeping it on the curriculum despite the dated language the graphic violence the author's personality There are two myths about adolescents and th

    I hated this book First off as I remember it talks about humans failure to govern ourselves or broadly the failures of human nature There are a few reasons why I think simply dropping a group of kids on a desert island does not in fact prove anything1 These kids were raised in a capitalist nominally demcratic society The first thing they do is appoint leaders As someone w

    Years after I read this masterpiece it is still chilling Golding spins a yarn that could have been told centuries ago primal human nature unmoored from civilization does not take long to break away and devolve into a feral thingAs good today and as haunting as it was when it was published in 1954 This should be on a list of books that must be read 2018 addendum it is a test
