This would be the case in most other stories, but in The Lord of the Flies by Robert Golding, Simon serves one of the greatest and most important roles of all of the boys: Simon is the brain of the group. Through his consistent positive thinking and ideas, civilized actions and ideologies, and selfless thinking and actions, Simon becomes a complete necessity for the group’s survival.
