    “When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat.” President Ronald Reagan’s advice rang true as he spoke for the masses at a conference in 1984. Through the power of this speech, Reagan demonstrates that people will go to extensive lengths to be heard and make change. In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, this very principle is demonstrated as once innocent schoolboys turn to savages in an attempt to rule and conquer their peers. Golding parallels the state of a conch found…

I feel as if the producers of the popular television show “Survivor” used this novel as the framework of their show. Both Golding’s novel and the show have many similarities. When the show “Survivor” premiered, I immediately thought of the novel The Lord of the Flies. The novel is about a group of schoolboys who are shipwrecked on a…
