“Maybe there is a beast… maybe it’s only us.” – William Golding, Lord of the Flies
One of my all time favourites. The exploration of human instinct through the contrasting depiction of civilisation and savagery is one theme which has stuck with me over the years. With countless expectations and responsibilities in life, acting on impulse is sometimes a challenge. Although Golding illustrates savagery and chaos as negative and almost evil-like concepts, I’ve always believed that it’s not completely bad to have a little ‘beast’ within us.
