William Golding’s first novel , Lord of the Flies ,tells about the group of young English schoolboys , between the ages of six and twelve , who survive a plane crash on a tropical island. The boys were apparently evacuated during a destructive atomic war and are left with no adult control anywhere about, to build their own society on the island. The change to create a new paradise is clear enough, but Golding quickly indicates that the boys are products of and intrinsically parts of current human society. Some of the character in this novel applealed to adult sanity in their futile attempt to control their world , but , suddenly and inconsistently at the wnd of the novel , adult sanity really exist. The horrror of the boys experience on the island was really a childish game , though a particularly vicious one , after all.
