Title: Good grief: Lord of the Flies as a post-war rewriting of salvation history
Author: Marijke van Vuuren
1. Introduction
"It is a great pleasure to meet you, Mr Golding," said King Carl XVI Gustaf, presenting William Golding with the Nobel Prize in 1983. "I had to do Lord of the Flies at school" (Monteith, 1986:63). The Swedish king's words may well be echoed by countless people worldwide who have "had to do" Golding's first novel in various English courses. Indeed, this "unpleasant novel about small boys behaving unspeakably on a desert island" (1) may well have been done to death by exhaustive but reductive reading and teaching.
Where Lord of the Flies has been read reductively, Original Sin writ large over it, readers have tended to respond to the novel in terms of its doleful view of humanity or its perceived theology. Its initial success reflected post-war pessimism, the loss of what Golding (1988a:163) has called his generation's "liberal and naive belief in the perfectability of man". Although the novel does not groan under a dogmatic burden to the extent that some critics have alleged, it has seemed the prime example of Golding's earlier writing, a tightly structured allegory or fable.

It is not surprising that the Bible's first and last books, on humankind's "origins and end" beyond the horizons of knowledge, turn to symbolic narrative. In Lord of the Flies Golding draws heavily on imagery from Genesis and the Apocalypse, together with prophetic eschatological imagery, as this article will attempt to indicate.
As the primitive myths were essentially magical and religious, Frazer (1957:169), in his great if a-historical study of mythologies, expressed the belief that the "movement of higher thought ... has on the whole been from magic through religion to science". This faith in the "progress upwards from…...

...Interview-Stacey Williams The first interview I conducted was with a young man named Stacey Williams. He had a nice handshake and looking at his physical appearance, I could tell he was an athlete. He was in fact a football player, and reviewing his resume, he is finishing his second to last semester at Webber International University. I asked Mr. Williams three questions, and he gave reasonable answers for each of them. The first question was which age group would he prefer to work with, and he said middle age children (12 years and up). My second question was how does he compare with the YMCA important values-respect, honesty, and responsibility and he said he does really well with them, especially from his experience as an athlete, which I like. My last question was about him fitting in and he sounded confident saying he would tell jokes and just be himself. Stacey seemed to know the duties and responsibilities of the YMCA and I think he would get along great with the children. During his interview he could have did better with his choice of words. However, he did fine. Interview-Katie Lindstorm My second interview was with Ms. Katie Lindstrom and I really enjoyed interviewing her. She gave great answers to my questions, and seemed enthused while answering them. She is the type of employee we need at the YMCA. Just from asking her three simple questions and reading her body language, I know she will relate well with the children. Her remarkable experience playing and...

...Change Proposals.) The Chamber feels that the benefits of this bill are unproven and that the U.S. economy cannot afford the financial effects that this bill, with its regulations, will bring on the American consumer, workers, and businesses. Briefly define the Yes Men, and discuss in what ways, if any, beliefs, attitudes, and values play into or relate to the Yes Men’s formation and tactic. The Yes Men consider themselves to be activist that exposes what they find to be the wrong doings of large companies. The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno. They have developed a network of likeminded individuals that attempt to raise awareness about social issues that they consider to be a problem in society. They have impersonated corporate officials to give the media something they consider to be important to write about. They feel that they are helping society with their actions by exposing illegal or irresponsible activity that these large corporations are doing. They consider themselves crime fighters. Do you agree or disagree with the tactics of the Yes Men? What concepts from class and textbook readings thus far, particularly those in Chs. 3 and 4, support your position? While I find the hijinks of the Yes Men wildly entertaining I don’t really believe exposure by deception is necessarily the right way to go about it. Although I may not agree with their tactics they have certainly found a creative way to influence public opinion of the corporations they’ve......

...Yes or No Did communism threaten America’s internal security after World War II (WWII)? Some say yes, and some say no. In this article of Taking Sides John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, both history professors, claim that during the “Venona Project” of WWII the code-breakers of the U.S. army revealed a troubling number of U.S. government officials who were passing on secret information on to the Soviet Union and completely spoiled American comforts (Issue Summary). One of the officials that were caught was Harry White. Being one of the most powerful officials in the U.S. Treasury Department, White warned the KGB on how the diplomatic strategy of America could be upset. Another official that was caught was Lauchlin Currie. Currie was President Franklin Roosevelt’s most trusted assistants. He told the KGB about the investigation that the FBI had started on one of the Soviets’ American agents, Gregory Silvermaster. After acquiring this information this made it easy for Silvermaster to get out of dodge of the FBI and continue spying. Also, during the Manhattan Project, Klus Fuchs and Theodore Hall, both physicists, and technician David Greenglass transferred the compound formula for extracting bomb-grade uranium from ordinary uranium, the plans for production facilities, and the engineering principles for the “implosion” technique, which made the use of a plutonium using atomic bomb possible (Haynes, Klehr). Haynes and Klehr stated that, “Americans worried that a communist......

...to their hotel bill. Residents are also concerned it will compete with other area venues. This will effectively turn the draw of the arena, into a drawback These worries are easily put to rest however. A prominent Fort Worth business man has already pledged $225 million dollars of private money to help fund the venue. The remaining cost of the venue would come from taxes not on the residents, but taxes on the facility itself. Vendors who use the building would pay a usage tax, as well as a parking tax. As far as competition to venues, such as the American Airline Arena or Cowboys Stadium, there would be none. At 14,000 seats, the multipurpose arena could not host any NBA or NHL games. So those events would still be held at the stadium where they are currently. The competition between venues simply would not exist. A multipurpose arena in downtown Fort Worth would give residents a fantastic new venue for upcoming events. With rodeos, graduations, concerts, and special events the possibilities are seemingly endless. With this new arena there will come a very beneficial increase in tourism. This increase in tourism will be the boost the city needs to help revitalize downtown and turn it into a great tourist attraction for everyone. Voting yes on the proposition is what the city of Fort Worth needs. References Gozalova, M., Shchikanov, A., Vernigor, A., & Bagdasarian, V. (2014). Sports tourism.

...Below is a free essay on "Pool - Corey Campbell" from Anti Essays, your source for free research papers, essays, and term paper examples. Everyone is searching for happiness. But where do you actually find it. Nuclear family often seems to be the answer, but is it really true? Is it possible to love someone so much that you cannot sleep at night? Or are people just pretending? Is it at good idea, to just pull two things together and expect it is going to work? Corey Campbell tries in the short story “Pool” written 2009, to define happi-ness, love and pooling things together. Darla is the main character of the story. She might be a middle-aged woman, the text does not say directly, but she is maybe in the late thirties. “Darla herself, just older than the couple, had been pulled to the party by her boyfriend…”(p.1ll. 8-9). The couple Trevor and Mandy has been married four years and have a little baby girl together, the may be in their late twenties. Jon is Darla’s boyfriend they have been together for under a year. Darla is not happy in the relation-ship. She does not love Jon. “What she liked best about him, Darla had realized earlier in the car, was that it wasn’t going to last, so she didn’t have to care that much really” (p.1 ll. 12-13). It is obvious that she does not care about Jon. Jon on the other hand is willing to do a lot for Darla. One day earlier Darla and Jon were having sex, but the condom broke. Darla was afraid that she was pregnant. Right before the......

...Moose and the Sparrow Hugh Garner From the very beginning Moose Maddon picked on him. The kid was bait for all of Maddon's cruel practical jokes around the camp. He was sent back to the tool-house for left-handed saws, and down to the office to ask the pay cheater if the day's mail was in, though the rest of us knew it was only flown out every week. The kid's name was Cecil, and Maddon used to mouth it with a simpering mockery, as if it pointed to the kid being something less than a man. I must admit though that the name fitted him, for Cecil was the least likely lumberjack I've seen in over twenty-five years in lumber camps. Though we knew he was intelligent enough, and a man too, if smaller than most of us, we all kidded him, in the good natured way a bunkhouse gang will. Maddon however always lisped the kid's name as if it belonged to a woman. Moose Maddon was as different from Cecil as it is possible for two human beings to be and still stay within the species. He was a big moose of a man, even for a lumber stiff, with a round flat unshaven face that looked down angrily and dourly at the world. Cecil on the other hand was hardly taller than an axe-handle, and almost as thin. He was about nineteen years old, with the looks of an inquisitive sparrow behind his thick horn-rimmed glasses. He had been sent out to the camp for the summer months by an distant relative who had a connection with the head office down in Vancouver. That summer we were cutting big stuff in......

Why does Julie feel full of trouble and worry and ill-prepared (p. 3, 1. 21)? - Julie is not sure why she feels the way she does, it could be because she´s afraid what would happen to herself and the unborn child. 5. How does Debbie earn her living? - Debbie could be a prostitute or escort, she has many “visits” from many different men, and she travels to New York with a man. Julie and Debbie have a strange relationship. It seems like Julie is relying on Debbie to take care of her as she did at first when Julie arrived to the city. Debbie always paid for Julie and taught her about life and men - from her own point of view. Debbie’s motto in life was “Take what you want and don’t pay for it” (p. 3 l. 30) but Julie knows better regardless of Debbie. Julie learned from Debbie that things cost, the value of everything, and of people, of what you did for them, and what they did for you.

The main themes in the text are differences but also love. The story is open, so the reader has a lot to think about, after reading it. the story is told from the husband’s point of view, which means that it’s told in 3rd person. It is also told in chronologically order, which means that the story was told in how the things originally happened We are introduced to a couple, a man and a woman, there are arguing while washing the dishes. In the dialog, we can see how the husband trying to be the best husband he can be. For example, the wife’s friend tells her: ‘’A few months earlier he overheard a friend of his wife’s congratulate her on having such a considerate husband, and he thought, I try’’ It’s showing how the husband is trying to be good, by washing the dishes with her every day. This could mean that he actually cares about the way his wife is seeing him. He wants to be good and mostly of all a good husband. We can see that, in his comment where he says “I try’’. That means he’s trying to be a good husband to his wife He cares a lot about her, but in the other way he is pushing her to her limits.

Always their liability-” Renee tuned out and returned her attention to the window, watching a contrail extrude itself across the sky. “Mrs. Norwood?” a nurse called. “Your husband's here.” Renee gave Mrs. Rivas another polite smile and left. 1b Carl signed his name yet another time, and finally the nurses took away the forms for processing. He remembered when he had brought Renee in to be admitted, and thought of all the stock questions at the first interview. He had answered them all stoically. “Yes, she's a professor of mathematics.

...of her family. She feels too sad that she even has difficulty sleeping. She sleeps if she is able, Synge writes, and because we are able to see her posture, tears, and face, they are able to feel a more overwhelming response than if we were simply reading the play. Maurya's emotion also comes through at the end of the play when she grieves the loss of her sons. However, she leaves the audience on an almost hopeful note when she shares her acceptance of her lot in life. She says, No man at all can be living forever, and we must be satisfied. This sentence is intended to move the audience by helping them understand that this character will survive. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies and is said to reveal much about human nature. Do you agree or disagree that the play conveys much about humanity or about the human experience? What, if anything, does the work suggest about human beings or society? Support your views with textual details and analysis. Yes Macbeth conveys something about humanity and/or about the human experience, but what makes the play great is the same thing that makes Shakespeare great: it is his poetry, his use of language, his genius, his eloquence.
