Consider Lord of the Flies as a moral Fable

              In his own words, william Golding describes his novel, The Lord of the Flies as an attempt to trace out the foibles of human nature. As the story unfolds, a group of half- educated English Schoolboys reverting to savagery on a pacific island, the reader witnesses parables of the human situation.
Golding faces the problems of his story in an honest and assured manner, mixed with poetic imagination. The novel evolves a moral fable which as it descends,
leaves a bitter trait of fear, in humanity and death. It is also a novel of tragic force and deep moral power.
