About the Book
Golding, the author of Lord of The Flies, joined the Royal Navy in 1940 and was involved in World War II. After the war, he became a teacher and wrote books during his time as a teacher. Having participated in the war, Golding experienced firsthand the savage and barbaric nature of humans in desperate times of trouble and conflict. Men were mercilessly killed in millions in war and he wanted to express this uncivilised side of Man through a story, which brings us to Lord of The Flies. It was first published in 1954.
