During The Post-War Years The Experimental Tendency In British Novel Continued, But The Critics Lamented That The Mid-Twentieth Century British Literature Produced No Ulysses. William Golding S Lord Of The Flies (1954) Was Accepted As An Experiment With The Restoration Of Fable In English Fiction, A Reconstruction At An Adult Level Of R.M. Ballantyne S Coral Island. Thanks To The Nobel Prize Awarded To Golding In 1983, Lord Of The Flies Came To The Limelight And Its Underlying Philosophy Has Been Variously Interpreted Since Then. In The Face Of An Upsurge In Golding Criticism, And More Specifically, In Lord Of The Flies, The Novel Demands Fresh Discussions. The Present Book Seeks To Acquaint The Readers First With The Theme Of The Novel, And Then With The Discourses Invited By The Theme.A Detailed Analysis Of Each Of The Chapters Of The Novel Is The Special Attraction Of This Critical Study.
