In this unit, you will read William Golding's 1954 dystopian novel, Lord of the Flies, and contemplate human nature in the face of unknown, harsh, or threatening circumstances. As you read the novel, you will study Golding's use of several literary elements, including setting, theme, characterization, archetypes, imagery, irony, and tone. This unit also covers dependent and independent clauses, types of phrases, and the characteristics of film adaptations. In the final lesson, you will develop a thesis and outline and then write a literary analysis.
