I hated this book First off as I remember it talks about humans failure to govern ourselves or broadly the failures of human nature There are a few reasons why I think simply dropping a group of kids on a desert island does not in fact prove anything1 These kids were raised in a capitalist nominally demcratic society The first thing they do is appoint leaders As someone who spends my time working in consensus based groups seeking to challenge hierarchical structures I have a strong belief that this is not how things need to be It takes a bunch of unlearning and relearning to use these formats simply being in a new space or being a child does not do this work The author and the children he writes about are a part of a specific culture and it's incorrect to generalize these values to a broader concept of human nature2 They're all boys Again socialization yes even of a 6 year old plays a huge role in what behavior we see as appropriate While it's uite true that men or at least masculinity control government it's ridiculous to use only boys to extrapolate what ways of governing ourselves are possibleI read this book in 1996 when I was a freshman in highschool so maybe there's something I missed Or maybe my memories are being colored by just how gross the pig's head descriptions were If so feel free to correct me For now though I have to say that this book is offensive and makes dangerous assumption

they give little aid in building shelters spend their time having fun and begin to develop paranoias about the island The central paranoia refers to a supposed monster they call the beast which they all slowly begin to believe exists on the island Ralph insists that no such beast exists but Jack who has started a power struggle with Ralph gains a level of control over the group by boldly promising to kill the creature At one point Jack summons all of his hunters to hunt down a wild pig drawing away those assigned to maintain the signal fire A ship travels by the island but without the boys' smoke signal to alert the ship's crew the vessel continues without stopping Ralph angrily confronts Jack about his failure to maintain the signal; in frustration Jack assaults Piggy breaking one of the lenses of his glasses The boys subseuently enjoy their first feast Angered by the failure of the boys to attract potential rescuers Ralph considers relinuishing his position as leader but is persuaded not to do so by Piggy who both understands Ralph's importance and fears what will become of him should Jack take total control عنوانها «سالار مگس ها»؛ «خداوندگار مگسها»؛ «بعل زبوب»؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ بهجت، ابتکار، افراشته، آپادانا، ابر سفید، رهنما، امیرکبیر؛ ادبیات انگلستان؛ تاریخ نخستین خوانش روز بیست و پنجم ماه اکتبر سال 2012میلادیعنوان سالار مگس ها ؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم حمید رفیعی؛ تهران، بهجت، 1353، در 372ص؛ چاپ سوم 1385؛ شابک 9646671918؛ موضوع داستانهای نویسندگان انگلیسی سده 20معنوان بعل زبوب ؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم محمود مشرف آزاد م آزاد؛ تهران، ابتکار، 1363، در 270ص؛ عنوان سالار مگس ها ؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم رضا دیداری؛ تهران، افراشته، 1363؛ در 282ص؛ عنوان سالار مگس ها؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم سوسن اردکانی شاهین؛ تهران، آپادانا، 1363؛ در 336ص؛ چاپ دیگر تهران، ابر سفید، 1390، در 327ص؛ شابک 9786009254552؛عنوان سالار مگسها؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم مژگان منصوری؛ تهران، پرگل، 1379؛ چاپ دیگر تهران، رهنما، 1382؛ در 443ص؛ شابک 9643670937؛ چاپ دیگر 1385؛ چاپ بعدی 1388؛ شابک 9789643670931؛عنوان خداوندگار مگس ها؛ نویسنده سر ویلیام گلدینگ؛ مترجم جواد پیمان؛ تهران، امیرکبیر، چاپ دوم 1395؛ در 287ص؛ شابک 9789640018743؛از جمله آثار برجسته ی کلاسیک جهان، که «ویلیام گلدینگ» در آن؛ شور و هیجان را در یک قصه ی تمثیلی، با قدرت و صداقت توصیف کرده، داستان ماجرای شگفت آور گروهی پسر بچه است، در مدرسه ای انگلیسی، که در طی جنگ هسته ای و خانمانسوز، عازم منطقه ای امن میشوند؛ ولی سقوط هواپیما، آنها را ملزم به اقامت در جزیره ای استوایی میکند؛ در آغاز، همه چیز به خوبی پیش میرود، و آنها بی دغدغه و سبک بال، جزیره ی خوش آب و رنگ و سرسبز را، درمینوردند؛ اما اندک زمانی، پس از آن، شرارت و تندخویی پسرها، بهشت زمینی را، به دوزخی از آتش و خون، مبدل میکند، و تمامی مظاهر خرد و پاک اندیشی، از وجودشان رخت برمیبندد؛ کشمکش درونی نیروهای متضاد خیر و شر، درون مایه ی داستان را شکل میدهدتاریخ بهنگام رسانی 22061399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی

William Golding ¿ Lord of the Flies Kindle

Lord of the FliesAt the dawn of the next world war a plane crashes on an uncharted island stranding a group of schoolboys At first with no adult supervision their freedom is something to celebrate; this far from civilization the boys can do anything they want An I read this book a long time ago long enough to where I barely remembered anything past the basic premise So I picked it up again only to wish I hadn't There's a reason why they teach this book in middle school in order to enjoy this book one's intellectual cognizance must be that of a child because otherwise you'll spend the entire time picking out everything that's wrong with the book And there's a lot to pick outFrom what little of the story that is actually coherent I can see why this book has had a lasting effect on social commentary since it's initial publishing The overlying illustration of how easily man can devolve back to his feral instincts is striking yet could have been infinitesimally effective in the hands of a decent writer See I would have cared a bit about the little island society of prepubescent boys and their descent into barbarism if you know any of the characters had been developed AT ALL Instead we're thrown interchangeable names of interchangeable boys who are only developed enough to conform to the basic archetypes Golding reuires to hobble his little story along The Leader The Rebel The Fat Kid The Nose Picker etc Were he born in this time I believe Golding would have done brilliantly as a scriptwriter for reality TV And the plot? There's a plot? I'm guessing so since things seem to happen but it's kind of hard to tell since he spends pages describing irrelevant events that are never incorporated characters that possibly exist yet probably don't and using words that don't mean what he thinks they mean And as the main characters are a bunch of kids not worth caring about thus goes the way of the storyAnd the prose? Dear God the prose Get it away It burns us So yeah this book sucked It had potential There were even a few parts I internally suealed at in hopeful anticipation But whatever potential it did have was hopelessly suandered by a man who wrote like he'd never written anything before in his life Don't waste your time
