of it All, "I think [Lord of the Flies] is in fact a realistic view of the Ballantyne situation" (Golding/Dick 18). Although it is known for its clarity of outline, the framework of Golding's novel is complex, yet seems to have a more original theme that is then reshaped to fit his purpose. Lord of the Flies was very successful as just a simple narrative and is also a magnificent resource for its symbolic representations.
