When they had done laughing, Simon stroked Ralphs arm shyly; and they had to laugh again." (pg. 25) Passage 2 - "When youre done laughing, perhaps we can get on with the meeting.

  • Comparison Of Lord Of The Flies And All Quiet On The Western Front - 1,252 words
    Comparison of Lord of The Flies and All Quiet on The Western Front An author's view of human behavior is often reflected in their works. The novels All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque and Lord of the Flies by William Golding are both examples of works that demonstrate their author's view of man, as well his opinion of war. Golding's Lord of the Flies is highly demonstrative of Golding's opinion that society is a thin and fragile veil that when removed shows man for what he truly is, a savage animal. Perhaps the bet demonstration of this given by Golding is Jack's progression to the killing of the sow. Upon first landing on the island Jack, Ralph, and Simon go to survey the ...
