Theme
1. Need for civilization
people need rules or laws
no rules --> people get dark impulses
2. Loss of innocence
laws/consequences regulate the behavior
no laws
--> boys come face-to-face with the evil
--> no longer innocent
3. Civilization v.s. savagery
two competing impulses
--> exist in all humans
civilization = good (Ralph)
savagery = evil (Jack)
Plot
main protagonist
12 years old
leader of the boys
-> democratic and fair
Ralph
During WWII
a plain (within 25 boys) crashes on an island

The setting is important for two reasons:
1. Finding the boys is not the top priority
2. The island is a cause for the changing behavior of the boys --> savagery

Setting
