The Lord of the Flies is about a mini-society of boys formed by chance. Their

violence. When laws and morals can no longer apply to man then the darkness of
man's heart will escape. This anarchy is a picture of our society today in war, greed,
fear, and is the other half of our "civilised society". It is a picture that exists and will
remain with man no matter how far we bury the darkness whether we bury it shallow
like Jack and Roger or deep like Ralph and Piggy.
