“Lord of the flies” – Island decription

( A brief description of the Island with quotes)

  1. The platform and meeting place

“Here the beach was interrupted abruptly by the square motif of the landscape; a great platform of pink granite thrust up uncompromisingly through forest and terrace and sand and lagoon to make a raised jetty four feet high. The top of this was covered with a thin layer of soil and coarse grass and shaded with young palm trees” (Golding 13).

“Ralph grasped the idea and hit the shell with air from his diaphragm. Immediately the thing sounded. A deep, harsh note boomed under the palms, spread through the intricacies of the forest and echoed back from the pink granite of the mountain” (Golding 21).

2. Beach

“The beach between the palm terrace and the water was a thin stick, endless apparently, for to Ralph’s left the perspectives of palm and beach and water drew to a point at infinity; and always, almost visible, was the heat” (Golding 10).


3. Site where Ralph and Piggy find the conch

“Ralph had stopped smiling and was pointing into the lagoon. Something creamy lay among the ferny weeds” (Golding 18).


4. The lagoon
