In our world today and in the stories we read, there are people who are more evil than anyone 's parents. In each of the stories “Cask of Amontillado” and “The Most Dangerous Game,” the two characters Montresor and General Zaroff are both very evil and two faced.

In other words, they control their future. In the case of Lord of the Flies, the boys’ lack of control over their emotions and specifically their fear resulted in the killing of Simon. In conclusion, Golding’s use of rhetorical devices has a significant impact on the development of one of the major themes. The reader comes to understand that they must remain in control of their emotions because the events which occur in Lord of the Flies should not ever occur in real
