In this adventure story about a group of schoolboys stranded on a deserted island, William Golding explores the dark side of humanity and the savagery that surfaces when social structure is broken down, and rules, ideals, and values are lost. New critical essays on "Lord of the Flies" are supplemented by a chronology of the author's life, a bibliography, and notes about the essay contributors.
