Example text

The atomic war generated the novel in the first place, was the device to bring the evacuated schoolboys to the island (in this sense, the boys have only duplicated the adult world), and, in the ship and the dead parachutist who is the 'Lord of the Flies', the 'Lord of Dung', and Beelzebub, the war impinges at points throughout the whole novel. Ralph has come to understand something of this, to recognise the central evil of human experience, although he does survive, and Golding, in the final line of the novel, grants him a mysteriously equivocal stance in 'allowing his eyes to rest on the trim cruiser in the distance' without comment.

Yet because of Golding's complexity, 'plenitude' or paucity of imagination as it might be, 'fable' is too centred on plot and does not entirely carry the meaning. Golding's sense of formal achievement is not fully satisifed, as it is in some of the later novels. His form, in so far as it is entirely coherent, is conditioned still by the form against which he reacts, the model of Ballantyne's The Coral Island. The negative form, the target, provides the points of coherence that a reading as 'fable' cannot quite sustain.

We never know whether or not Nathaniel, Golding's example of the man who can abandon ego, his 'saint', is ultimately saved. The novel follows and records Pincher, and he is damned. His rational and conscious efforts cannot save him; his insistence on self, the insistence on his relentless attempts to get whatever he can to comfort or assuage his ego, his 'greed', ensures his moral damnation in a universe not controlled by man. As Golding has said a number of times, Pincher himself is purgatory.
