“恶的本能也可能坚毅无畏,百折不挠”

A seeming children’s book has symbolically depicted nearly everything in the real world: human capacities for evil is as infinite as for kindness.

William Golding has an excellent story pattern and even all those films in the 21th century with imaginative settings can find some clues and inspirations in this novel.

His language, very childish but not unpoetical: in Roger’s perspective — “Ralph was a shock of hair and Piggy a bag of fat.” — the scene is properly funny yet bitterly ironic; when “The feast was beginning and the watchman had been given his portion”, the very violent and barbaric life of the boys has got a tinge of romance; and when the savages were chasing Ralph, “He swung to the right, running desperately fast, with the heat beating on his left side and the fire racing forward like a tide,” a sense of rhyme and rhythm has never been absent from the fiction.

As to the theme, William Golding seems to make the novel a children’s book on purpose, thus everything about one’s psychology has been dissected in a very direct manner, and even too direct to be profound.
