Homework Help: English

Posted by SoonerGal on Monday, October 23, 2006 at 3:56pm.

I am really trying to understand the novel Lord of the Flies. My teacher asked us to find the theme. I'm not sure what it is.
Also, I am college student and one of my high school friends told me about this site. Can you still help me? Thanks!


Please tell us what you think the theme is and we'll be happy to discuss it with you.


Thank you...I think the theme has something to do with human nature along with the ability to be civilized and then turn to savagery, depending on surroundings. Am I close?


Yes. You're right on the mark! :-)

A secondary theme is the loss of innocence the boys experience by being deprived of their adult shelters.


ahh..ok. Thank you!! It has helped me get started!
