    How these play out, and how different people feel the influences of these form a major subtext of Lord of the Flies, with the central themes addressed in an essay by American literary critic Harold Bloom. She was reportedly unsatisfied by the final product and had her name removed, hence the attribution to a pseudonym. They raid Ralph's camp, confiscate the glasses, and return to their abode on Castle Rock. The characters of Ralph and Jack represent opposing sides of this spectrum, with Ralph establishing orderly authority and Jack encouraging chaotic violence. Jack's savages set fire to the forest while Ralph desperately weighs his options for survival. As the doomed Simon and Piggy try to make sense of what's happening on the island, Golding gives us yet another moral theme to consider.

    Not long after the meeting, some military planes engage in a battle high above the island. Jack represents the animal nature in all of us which, unchecked by the rules of society, quickly degenerates into savagery. They obey, but before they have finished the task, most of them have slipped away to join Jack. Benson was what the boys thought was the monster and runs to the beach in an attempt to alert the boys of his discovery, but his waving of the glow stick frightens the other boys, who mistake him for the monster and stab him to death with their spears. Simon realizes Capt. At first, the boys enjoy their life without grown-ups and spend much of their time splashing in the water and playing games.

    The coming-of-age story tells of a group of British schoolboys stranded on a desert island after a plane crash during a major war. When he looks up, he sees a naval officer, whose ship has come to investigate a massive fire on the island started by Jack's tribe. When the twins wake up, they see the enormous silhouette of his parachute and hear the strange flapping noises it makes. His writing frequently raised questions about morality and human nature, of which he had a decidedly cynical view.
