Transcript of Copy of Lord of the Flies

Par: Mélodie Champagne et Laurence Auger Lord of the Flies - Setting
-“All around him the long scar smashed into the jungle”(Golding 1)

-“The lagoon is located near the shore”(Golding 1)

-“This is an island”(Golding 2)

-“Out there, perharps a mile away, the white surf flinked on a coral, and beyond that the open sea was dark blue”(Golding 4)

- “A great platform of pink granite thrust up uncompromisingly through forest and terrace and sand and a lagoon to make a raised jetty four feet high”(Golding 6)

-“…had banked sand inside the lagoon so that there was a long, deep pool in the beach with a high ledge of pink granite at the further end”(Golding 7)

-“boat shaped”(Golding 26) Description of the island (from novel) •The whole island and it’s palm trees are flammable
•Includes some paradise-like, idyllic characteristics that can temporarily take away the evil and darkness of it all
•It has such a part to the island as a “castle rock” that adds mystery and makes the boys assume if there is a beast, it must live there in the big rocks that “seem to trotter”
•Lastly, it permits the boys to make designated sides of this island both symbolical; both tribes rest where their beliefs are well set
•Seems like a fun adventure on a treasure island at first - Bible The garden of God and the first home of Adam and Eve. AlsocalledGarden of Eden
- A delightful place, paradise, pleasure, delight
- A state of innocence, bliss, or ultimatehappiness Edenic (LOTF setting - Laurence) •The island represents both good and evil
•Religiously, it links to the Garden of Eden
•All idyllic items on the island are somewhat deceptive which represents the boy’s behavior and represents the potentiality of evil in any society
•There is a war on the island, represents the war at home which is the reason the boys ended up on the island
•The fire was first meant to save the boys by sending signal, and in the end, by evil causes, it does •Stranded, alone, no adults no civilization
•A lot of different sections that bring out different emotions such as: Dark forest(Danger), Bright Shimmering lagoon(Excitement),Open sea (Isolation)
•Makes the boys eager to explore therefore going too far
•Using the reef as a sort of shield; protection
•Permits the boys to install different systems on the natural structures like: Mountain=fire Platform=Meeting Lagoon=swimming/washing off Beaches=Building huts ADVANTAGES OF USING ISLAND SYMBOLISM OF ISLAND (LOTF symblos and meanings) (Lord of the flies symbolism) - Laurence) (LOTF setting - Laurence) - Mountain (LOTF island description)
- Castle rock (LOTF island description)
- Creepers: “He was clambering among the creepers” (Golding 1)
- Dense jungle: “Ralph disentangled himself cautiously and stole away through the branches” (Golding 4)- High grass: “The group beneath them was a bank covered with coarse grass” (Golding 4) -“The shore was pledged with palm trees” (Golding 4) -Melodie -Melodie - Adam is like the boys on the island who are good and want to follow the rules that he was shown in his previous life in England but who can be tempted. Eve is like the children on the island who are tempted to have fun and temp others, like Jack (Garden of Eden)
- When the boys are tired of eating fruit, as in obeing the rules they go against what they were taugh an produce an act of savagery by killing the pig "Kill the beast, cut his throat, spill his blood!" (Golding 168)
- This shows the dark side in the boys, once the boys change and become savages, they are deadly to each other. Which ends up ruining the island paradise for everyone. (LOTF Biblical/ Religion) - Presented as a lovely jungle almost like a paradise "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.” (Golding 60) (Etymology of Eden)
- A place where everyone is in touch with the nature there, like Adam and Eve (LOTF Biblical/ Religion)
- Starting a new civilization on a virgin/ untouched island (Where it all goes down LOTF)
- The island represents the boy’s sudden isolation and portrays the Garden of Eden (Where it all goes down LOTF)
- Just like in the bible when Adam and Eve are naked, Ralf strips himself down and this shows us his ridding of society. "He undid the snake-clasp of his belt, lugged off his shorts and pants, and stood there naked, looking at the dazzling beach and water" (Golding 5)
- Boys become more in touch with evil, like when the serpent spoke to Eve (LOTF Biblical/ Religion)
- Island turns into an unfriendly and savage place (LOTF Biblical/ Religion)
