  • A plethera of metaphors Mar 24, 2007
    by Ron Townsend

    In 1964-5 my optional fourth year of English in high school required the reading and the
    analyzing of The Lord of the Flies by William Golding. The books was full of similies and
    metaphors and of course The Lord of the Flies is a metaphor for Satan. It's a hard book
    to read because of the graphic violence and I don't recommend to a friend for that very
    reason. If you are looking for really great English and descriptive writing this is the book
    for you. It was out in paperback when Orwell's Animal Farm and 1984 were being published in paperback. All three are disturbing but enlightening books and gave me a
    good picture of what violence could do unabated. Golding won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his entire work of fiction and is honored a foreign postage stamp.
