William Golding ’’The Lord of the Flies’’ analysis.

Starting from the exposition, in the first paragraph in the book we can already find some sentences that talk about the appearance of the main character Ralph (e.g. Though he had taken off his school sweater and trailed it now from one hand, his grey shirt stuck to him and his hair was plastered to his forehead.) Further, narrator more and more shows us the appearance of the boys in the island (e.g. He was shorter than the fair boy and very fat.) so that we could clearly make the portrait of characters in our heads. The readers learn that because of the war, the children were transported by plane when the plane was attacked and crashed on the island. The next point is the rising action, the rising action begins from the time the fire goes out and Ralph gets mad at Jack who then starts fighting with Ralph a lot. The boys elect Ralph as their leader, it leads to the conflict when Jack feels displeased about his defeat. The tension is growing faster and faster, two boys Ralph and Jack stands in opposite sides. One (Jack) is interested in hunting, and thinks only how to survive, while another boy (Ralph) wants not only to survive but also to stay a human. Unfortunately, the rumor about the wild beast comes and scares everyone, all the school boys are step by step dividing into two groups. The groups that are completely different – the group where the leader is Ralph, and the group where the leader is violent Jack.
