Discussion question – Lord of the Flies: Describe some of the ways the vision of a human
- Describe some of the ways the vision of a human “at once heroic and sick” (Chapter 6) is represented in the novel and within the larger context of history as well. Does Golding prescribe a remedy for the “sickness”?
- Jack gains power over many of the boys by exploiting their fear of the mythical beast. How does Jack manipulate the myth of the beast to legitimize his authority?
- How does the novel reflect the Cold War and the public’s concerns about the conflict between democracy and communism? Does the novel take a side? (Remember to cite all of your research sources in your bibliography.)
