VV. Part 10. Essay (choose only ONE topic and write three paragraphs [4-5 sentences for each paragraph]) 1. William Golding has said that his novel Lord of the Flies was symbolic from the beginning until the end when the boys are rescued. During the course of the novel these symbols are constantly changing, giving us a new interpretation of the island society.
Write an essay that discusses three different significant symbols from the book. Explain the significance of the symbol, why it is symbolic and how over the course of the novel that symbol changes. Make sure to explain why the changes to the symbol are significant to the interpretation of the novel (remember symbols can be both objects and characters).
2. In the novel the Lord of the Flies, author William Golding constantly has the reader questioning the true nature of humans-whether it is good or bad.
Write an essay that discusses the idea that humans are essentially goodor that humans are essentially bad. Choose one side and convince your audience (me) with two detailed examples from the text and two detailed examples from the last 50 years in history that humans are essentially goodor that humans are essentially bad. 3. Maybe true “world peace” is a simple minded dream of beauty pageant bubble-heads, but does that mean that people should stop trying altogether? Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream; considering “human nature” should he have abandoned it? William Golding did not write Lord of the Flies to make us feel defeated but to empower us through a fuller understanding of “human nature.”
Write an essay that discusses what lessons/insights Lord of the Flies offers that people today could put to use and how they could put it to use.

Why do you think this particular kind of hero—this “archetype”—has appealed to so many generations throughout history?
5. Compare and contrast Muggle and magical society. What social problems and prejudices do they have in common? Is one fairer than the other? Support your answer with details from the book.
