Significance of the title of the novel The Lord of the Flied

            The significance of the title may be traced back to the jewish hierarchy of demons where Beelzebub is called The lord of the flies. He is supposed to be the chief representative of false Gods.
The title is most relevant and appropriate as the novelist, Golding tries to convey the moral that the world is not a reasonable place and once the restraints of civilization are removed, the Lord of the Flies or Evil begins to rule over us.
