Lord Of The Flies - RPR

Uploaded by Madbhoy on Aug 25, 2001

I got a grade 1+ for this paper so u can be sure it will get you a good grade.

A book which I have read recently is “ Lord Of The Flies” by William Golding. In this R.P.R I’m will be explore how the gradual break up of the community is due to the hostile relationship between Ralph and Jack.

Jack being the leader of the group of choir- boys encourages the choir members to vote for him which is consequently done. When Ralph is elected to be chief Jack is obviously frustrated as shown in this quote:
“Jack’s face disappeared under a blush of mortification,”

Ralph proves to be an excellent Chief as he makes excellent decisions such as to...
