Shadowed island memoried comes flying
out of time on gruesome wings of pages;
this book of words comes buzzing, comes cloying,
comes tripping, shafting dripping images

in my mind. In my shadowed mind I see
a tribe of boys turn bestially from
the rites of humankind, as they dine, free
as pigs unfettered run, I hear the thrum

of hooves on hearts; and homemade darts invade
my head, the dancing, prancing animals
progressed to Mankind’s principals, remade
by Nature’s laws to be—undesirables.

The fly-torn Lord picked up his sword and clove
my naïve mind; and so was story wove.

This is an excellent book review of that gruesome book. I read it enthralled by the downward spiral of humanness with the turn of each page. Liz

ERIN - Superb analogy, review, and commentary!

As a 17 year-old senior in HS, I read this book as a reading assignment in 1954. I couldn't put the book down, and finished it over a weekend. That was 50 years ago!

When the movie came out, nine years later, I loved it! This set of young actors truly portrayed the symbolisms presented in the novel. While I have never gotten 'into' the TV SURVIVORS series, I believe that "Lord of The Flies" would just HAVE to be the origin of this concept.

The discovery of the Parachutist was a fascinating example of LOST HOPE! Survival of the Fittest was also exemplified in this great novel and movie.

ERIN - Now that you have piqued my interest again, I went to NETFLIX and just discovered that a REMAKE of the movie was done in 1990 - IT is now in my que!

Thank you for a nostalgic walk down "Memory Lane!" Tom.

I do believe Mr. Golding is now upright in his burial place, demanding that you give him audience! I'll tell you one thing, this would have been required reading, had I been the English teacher assigning this book! My goodness, Erin E K M.. (got any more? hehe) I'm entirely winded, doing 3 full 'laps' here.. and will save it, for the betterment of others' who read this classic, as well. You're a bloody WONDER! katy xox.

On my walking through the prairie of knowledge I passed by the tree of creativity and saw “The Lord of the Flies”. I returned to have a heedful look over, and there I saw the signature of
Poet Erin Elizabeth Kelly-Moen.

I was looking for an artistic poetic philosophical striker... Eureka!
“The Lord of the Flies” showed it in full!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>“The Lord of the Flies” is a combination of impressionism-realism-symbolism-surrealism that tells the story and delivers the message.
