The Lord of the Flies  is a 1954 dystopian novel by Nobel Prize-winning English author William Golding about a group of British boys stuck on an uninhabited island who try to govern themselves with disastrous results. Its stances on the already controversial subjects of human nature and individual welfare versus the common good.

*蒼蠅王內容包含: problem novel, initiation(rites of passage), bildungsroman 性質
蒼蠅王為反烏托邦式(dystopia)小說
 
小說分析:
*Fear是全書重點,真正的蒼蠅王就是掌握了人心對未知的恐懼和不安定,fear會被人利用,也會導致內心的黑暗面浮現。
*眼鏡是唯一的文明遺跡,因此在小說中不斷被爭奪。
*海螺是權力的象徵。
*表達人性本惡概念(sub consciousness)
*JackRalph均喜歡召集聚會,告知孩子你們有知的權利,然而其實都只是假性民主。
Call a meeting/ Call an assembly: 召集集會
*最後JackRalph有如暴君尼祿,手法越顯殘忍,引出內心黑暗
Nero is infamously known as the Emperor who "fiddled while Rome burned"

*"Apocalypse" is a Greek word meaning "revelation". disclosure: 打開後有對未來的想像,指預言

*Heart of Darkness is a novella by Anglo-Polish novelist Joseph Conrad, about a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State, in the heart of Africa, by the story's narrator Marlow. Marlow tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames, London, England.
 
*Heart of Darkness受佛洛依德影響,本我、自我、超我理論:

Id: 本我,人最為原始的、屬滿足本能衝動的慾望進入蠻荒之地,本我越來越浮現
Superego: 超我,是人格結構中的管制者,由完美原則支配,屬於人格結構中的道德部份
Ego: 自我,遵循「現實原則」,目的在於保持可滿足需求之客體被發現前之緊張狀態,講求的是效果不管經驗是否真實存在,而本我只對經驗到快樂或痛苦感興趣。
 
*Joseph Conrad
