10th Grade English

  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding is the first full-length novel to be covered in the Sophomore year of English. 

    This is a story of how societies fail - and how civilization may be more precious than any of us realize.

    Relying heavily on subtle symbolism, Golding shows how a group of boys (alone, with no adults, on a deserted island), deal with the pressures of law, order, and the hope of rescue.
