“As we have discussed, Lord of the Flies is an allegory; that is,
Everything in the story is symbolic in some way. Chose three central symbols in the novel thoroughly discuss their meanings.” An allegory is a symbolical narrative that means that stuff in the story is a symbol of something else that is happening or will happen in the future. For Lord of the Flies there were man allegories, whether it was a symbol of a character or an event, there was always something that related.
To start off one of the allegories that was a major stand out in
The novel was during a war where the children leave, the reason the children were on this island was because they forces were trying to get the people out of the danger zone and into a safe environment. While on their way to safety the airplane got shot down and then they became stranded on an island with just the children. During this time the war was split into two sections. In the novel, the island is split into two different sections. There is Ralph’s group and Jack’s group. Also, how they become very savage and they do not care who they hurt or kill. They begin to go crazy and begin killing to protect themselves, as they do in wars in the real world. That’s how the island related to a war ground, where the children became very savage.
The second allegory that I saw in the novel was the characters,
There were many characters that you could tell straight off the bat that they were going to symbolize something in Lord of the flies, such as Piggy, I didn’t know what it would be but gut feeling told me that he would be a character that relates to something going on.
