    Could you give us less context, please? Oh, wait, that's not possible. :D

    A sentence would be nice. And maybe some context. Thank you.

    In Golding's Lord of the Flies the protagonist Ralph becomes a hunted outcast but he is miraculously rescued at death’s door by the author's sudden intervention of a divine being – a navy officer.

    I'm (still) analyzing the novels Things Fall Apart (Achebe) and The Lord of the Flies (Golding) and "civilization vs. savagery; the loss of innocence; innate human evil; the boys/Okonkwo marooned/isolated on the island/the village struggle with the conflicting human instincts that exist within each of them—the instinct to work toward civilization and order and the instinct to descend into savagery, violence, and chaos."
