Lord of the Flies

Disclaimer: After reading this novel, there’s a good chance you’ll never want to eat bacon again.

William Golding’s Lord of the Flies is a chilling exploration of what happens to human nature in an apocalytpic world without government, God, or other social institutions that uphold civilization. In this Regular English unit, we’ll explore multiple layers of allegory in William Golding’s dark tale, and also examine themes of morality and conformity while watching a variety of symbols rise and fall. Our unit will culminate in a micronation project in which you’ll create your own nation from scratch, consulting and responding to a variety of articles as you do so.
