    we're doing lord of the flies for english,

    Explore the ways Golding presents conflict between Ralph and Jack in Lord of the flies

    We wrote up the first draft and she marked it
    she said the paragraphs are fine and added some comments on what to improve
    I know what to do for those, but I really need help for the introduction, she said the historical, social and cultural context is good, but its too short
    so I dont know what else to add

    I'd really appreciate your help! <3

    Golding's novel, Lord of the flies, is an allegorical novel which unveils the story of a group of British boys who were stranded in an island after their plane had crashed during the Second World War. Golding then presents the civilisation in the island as society by uncovering a range of characters, and a conflict between protection and savagery. Golding then uses his experience in World War II to represent the conflict between Ralph and Jack due to the lack of rules and knowledge inside the island.

    You can find a lot of context notes here: http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/flies/context.html or if you just generally search online in terms of adding in more context to your paragraphs, you could also talk about how the text would have been received at the time too

    I've also moved this post to the English forum- try to post in subject specific areas, the GCSE forum is just for issues related to GSCEs as a whole
