Lord of the Flies

Artist Unknown, Lord of the Flies, Illustration

“There isn’t anyone to help you. Only me. And I’m the Beast… . Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hunt and kill! … You knew, didn’t you? I’m part of you? Close, close, close! I’m the reason why it’s no go? Why things are the way they are?”

-William Golding, “Lord of the Flies”, Chapter 8: Lord of the Flies speaking to Simon
