THE MORAL SYMBOLS OF WILLIAM GOLDING

THE MORAL SYMBOLS OF WILLIAM GOLDING

Published by Xlibris
In contrast to other writers whose concern for evil is tempered with combination of chastened expectation and irony, William Golding treats evil an almost mythical intensity. This story is told with meticulous realism, and at the same time with a visionary clarity infused with symbolism, tells of children shipwrecked on a desert island, where their isolated environment compels their degeneration into a society based fear, violence and tyranny.
Literary criticism is generally directed toward the symbolic implications found in a particular novel, and as a result of this the novelist today is more self-conscious about his symbols than ever before. Golding does not object to man’s arrogance or his selfishness, but he insists that there must be certain limits to his freedom; one man’s freedom must not interfere with or destroy the freedom of others.
