In Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, insanity is depicted throughout the novel by Jack and his followers which later become known as “The Tribe”. Insanity is a form of mental illness which causes the inhabitant to be overcome with madness. In chapter 10 Golding tells of a horrendous attack against Ralph, Piggy, and the twins Sam and Eric.

Ralph later confronts Jack at the “Castle Rock” to inform him that if he needed fire all he had to do was ask.
