Description:

An examination of the beast in William Golding's "Lord of the Flies". The author investigates and examines whether the ?Beast? is Satan that tries to tempt the boys in the novel or the hopeless escape of the natural man trying to break free and survive.

From the Paper:

"There isn't anyone to help you. Only me. And I'm the Beast." This quote from William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies, set in the nineteenth century on a deserted island, brings up the question "What is the Beast?" Many critics believe the Beast is a form of Satan trying to tempt the boys. Others believe the Beast is only the natural man trying to break free. Of course, no one person has the answer. It must be surmounted by looking at all of the arguments."
