Literary Classics: Lord Of The Flies
Lord Of The Flies
STUDIO  |  June 21, 2010

Incredibly, William Golding's Lord of the Flies was rejected by no fewer than 21 publishing houses before finding a home and a place on bookshelves in 1954. It was Golding's very first book and it is now one of the most widely read and enjoyed modern novels. This is the story of the man behind the work and of the eerie tale of a collection of boys who arrive on a deserted island without adult supervision, who face temptations and who are ultimately undone by their own evil natures. The Lord of the Flies is a masterpiece of powerful allegories and rich modern metaphors.
