Lord of the Flies by William Golding, answer questions

In Lord of the Flies, William Golding has done something remarkable-he’s put us (his readers) back in the Garden of Eden, but how so? What does this small story reveal that is congruent with that “older tale” of mankind’s entrance into paradise and subsequent first sin and fall from grace? The novel itself is rife with oppositions: goodness vs. evil, light vs. darkness, democratic rule vs. tyranny, and freedom vs. control, but what do these oppositions tell us about ourselves, each other, and the society’s we create and live within?
