Biblical Allusions in Lord of the Flies In the novel, Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, he writes about the events and changes a large group of young British boys endure after being shot down and landing on a random island. With no parental guidance they learn to form their own society by making rules and to fend for themselves. Although the storyline sounds like any young boy’s dream the story takes a dark turn in which the author uses various techniques. Golding uses biblical allusions to important events, characters, and the island itself in the novel to keep the plot continuously moving and to keep to his theme that all men are inertially evil. In Chapters 5 through 7, the events after the rumor and discovery of the beast on the island, follows along with Revelation Chapter 13 very closely.

Lines one through seven define the free bird as one that “floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays” (Angelou) this is a representation of freedom and joy. The second and third stanza lines, eight through fourteen defines the caged bird that “stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage” (Angelou) where these words reference isolation and despair compared to the freedom in stanza one. These lines create a visual response of the bird’s environments. The third stanza is repeated at the end of the poem for prominence as it reflects the two birds are so different. The last line of the poem is “for the caged bird sings for freedom” (Angelou) this tells us that the caged bird yearns to be like the free bird.
“A man sees in the world, what he carries in his heart.” Birds can fly, animals can walk, fishes can swim but a man can do all of this. Man is the best creation of Almighty God. It’s better to be a human rather than being an angel but it entails much hard work. Allah Almighty has given complete freedom to everyone to desire and dream. He does not stop a beggar from dreaming and praying for kingship.

R. Kelly is an American recording artist, songwriter, and record producer. R. Kelly illustrated his great confidence with the word “believe”, and the word “fly” emphasized his trust in the great confidence that he has. Normally, humans do not know how to fly, whereas in the song, the phrase “I believe I can fly” was being repeated many times. This phrase repeatedly telling me that Kelly believes he can fly to show that his confident and hope could enable him to deal with unnatural things such as flying in the sky. Moreover, the phrase “If I can see it, then I can do it” empowering me to imagine that if I am able to visualise what I want, then I am able to achieve it.
There is also one torn away at the end of the narrative, though none of these affect the general coherence of the story. It is conjectured that the missing opening is concerned with the record of Mr. Joyce- Armstrong’s qualifications as an aeronaut, which can be gathered from other sources and are admitted to be unsurpassed among the air-pilots of England. For many years he has been looked upon as among the most daring and the most intellectual of flying men, a combination which has enabled him to both invent and test several new devices, including the common gyroscopic attachment which is known by his name. The main body of the manuscript is written neatly in ink, but the last few lines are in pencil and are so ragged as to be hardly legible—exactly, in fact, as they might be expected to appear if they were scribbled off hurriedly from the seat of a moving aeroplane. There are, it may be added, several stains, both on the last page and on the outside cover which have been pronounced by the Home Office experts to be blood—probably human and certainly mammalian.
