On Symbolic Significance of Characters in "Lord of the Flies"
Li, Xiaofang; Wu, Weihua
English Language Teaching, v2 n1 p119-122 Mar 2009
The characters in "Lord of the Flies" possess recognizable symbolic significance, which make them as the sort of people around us. Ralph stands for civilization and democracy; Piggy represents intellect and rationalism; Jack signifies savagery and dictatorship; Simon is the incarnation of goodness and saintliness. All of these efficiently portray the microcosm of that society.
