A six-point summary story-board by Tink Cresswell of William Golding's famous novel "The Lord of The Flies" which, with contextural referances to the atrocities of WW2, metaphorically explores how society can corrupt but also how humans by nature are corrupted and society can help us to conform. This is achieved through a fable that tells of school boys who are separated from society. This summary of the plot is split roughly in to chapters 1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8, 9&10 and 11&12.
I saw a beastie!
Some boys, who are evacuating Britain as it is in the midst of a nuclear war, are caught in a plane crash and find themselves stranded on an island with no adults. Ralph, a blond-haired boy, and Piggy a fat boy with glasses, find a conch and blow it to call an assembly of boys, and Ralph is elected as chief...
We should start a fire with Piggy's glasses so ships van find us.
Me and my hunter choirboys will kill pigs for food, and the beast too!
The boys begin to turn savage and Simon and Ralph are left to build shelters on their own. The hunters leave the fire untended and a ship passes by
If I throw rocks at Percival I might get told off...
You let the fire out?! Why won't anyone help me except Simon?
I killed my first pig, we should have a celabratory tribal dance and paint our faces like in the war!
A dead aircrew member drops from the sky at night. The boys become frightened that it's parachute which blows in the wins, is the beast and Ralph finds it difficult to convince them otherwise.
