Lord of the Flies
This book examines human nature , morality and civilization. History has repeatedly shown us that in certain circumstances, people behave in both appalling and uplifting ways. While as readers we all want to identify with the “good” characters, we also cant help but be aware of the disturbing parallels to reality in the bad.
This existentialist classic remains relevant throughout time. Camus’ observations of the social and psychological effects of the epidemic on the people of the town demonstrate all aspects of human nature. Life is fleeting and ephemeral, but by taking responsibility for our lives, enjoying the goodness and beauty around us, we can find meaning and personal equanimity in the world.
