Gary's completely right about the pessimistic worldview of Golding.
But it's always seemed to me that Lord of the Flies was an extremely
effective portrayal, even if done unintentionally, of how thin the
veneer of our civilization is, in this case despite all the advantages
and privileges and supposed culture of the English upper classes. In
that sense it mirrors Conrad's Heart of Darkness.
