“Hey kid!” the clown shouted, dropping a hand full of popped balloons to the ground. “You are going to pay for that!” But before he could give chase, the clown’s attention was taken up by a little girl, who looked up at him with tear covered eyes. She held up a few pieces of red balloons. “My reindeer, can you fix it?” The clown laughed a silly laugh, the kind that makes you want to laugh along and squeezed his nose, which squeaked loudly.

When we were trying to cross the river the current picked up and I fell a couple of times because it started raining, and I could feel the rocks when I hit the ground and I could taste the fishy water. But there was no lightening so we kept swimming in the river for a long time. While we swimming down stream Will saw a bridge and he wanted to go there. Right when we saw the bridge it thundered it was so loud that I could hear it like it was right in my ear. Then I yelled “Let’s just go up to where we started out at.” Will screamed “Let’s go up to the bridge and see what it’s like.” So I went back up to camp where we started out at and Will went to check out the bridge to see what it was like.

It is shocking how quickly people can change from being calm to becoming savages. In Lord of the Flies, a plane crashed and some schoolboys got stranded on an island where they have to survive on their own but end up failing and become savages. Chapter 9 concluded with having Simon go out to find the beast and discovers there is none; on his way back everybody is dancing in the rain and eating meat, but when they see this figure coming down, they think it’s the beast so they end up killing the it, which was actually Simon.Therefore, the events above connect to the theme due to the cause of fear that got inside of them once they saw a dark figure and turned them into bloodthirsty savages.In Lord of the Flies, William Golding employs figurative language, diction, and juxtaposition to convey the theme of fear. Golding states examples how figurative language is used in the book Lord of the Flies.Golding uses many different examples such as “The beast was harmless and horrible” (Golding 147), based on the quote it represents irony because even though everyone thought there was a beast it turns out there never really was a beast and fear got to them.Another quote Golding uses is“The tide...touched the first of the stains that seeped from the broken body...” (154), based on the quote, it represents personification because it describes how the ocean touches Simon 's dead body that was floating away.Golding’s quotes give the effect of suspense because you don’t know what 's going

“Lord of the Flies”, by William Golding, 1954 In William Golding’s novel “Lord of the Flies” from 1954, a group of British boys attempt to govern themselves on the island they have stranded on. But throughout the novel, the 6 to 13 year old boys turn more and more to savagery, and end up fighting each other. Even though they are kids and therefore innocent, they still do the most unforgivable thing our late modern society knows of. They murder. Through the allegorical characters, William Golding pictures different ways of running a society, and how good intentions can turn into disasters.
