Thesis Statement / Essay Topic #3: The Dynamics of Power in “Lord of the Flies” One of the elements of society that the boys attempt to imitate early in their society-building project is that of establishing a hierarchy in which there is a designated leader whose job it is to inspire and guide his followers.Golding’s Lord Of The Flies is based on an island after the second world war.Through-out the novel, Golding treats the island as a microcosm of the war.Write an analytic essay in which you discuss the symbolic importance of adults for the boys.Consider the possibility that the boys' efforts to imitate the adult world are destined to fail because they are simply not developmentally—cognitively or emotionally– ready to tackle adult challenges.Within this is microcosm, the island commences as a utopia but it is not until chapter 8 when it gradually evolves into a dystopia as the ultimate battle for jealousy and power breaks out.The modification and degradation in certain characters’ behaviour from their normal life of civilization makes chapter 8 key to Golding’s Lord Of The Flies’ .Using the essay topics below in conjunction with the list of important quotes from Lord of the Flies by William Golding, you should have no trouble connecting with the text and writing an excellent essay. When the boys are stranded on the island, they are left to their own devices and it is not until the novel's end that an adult appears to rescue them.Despite the absence of actual adults, the boys are constantly referring to adults (see quotes, below) and they believe that they are attempting to construct an adult world.Be sure to address two important motifs: (1) the frequent insistence on the importance of rules (and their inadequacy to protect the boys from their own violence) and (2) the regular references to savages and animals.Thesis Statement/Essay Topic #5: Indeterminate Endings At the end of the novel, the boys are rescued and their ordeal has ended.
