The 50th Anniversary Edition of the Lord of the Flies is the volume that every fan of this classic book will have to own! Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. Though critically acclaimed, it was largely ignored upon its initial publication. Yet soon it became a cult favorite among both students and literary critics who compared it to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye in its influence on modern thought and literature. Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic. And now readers can own it in a beautifully designed hardcover edition worthy of its stature.

Review quote

"Lord of the Flies, a grim parable that holds out precious little hope for humanity...is the most influential novel among U.S. undergraduates since Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye... The British schoolboys in Lord of the Flies are a few years younger than Salinger's Holden Caulfield--they are six to twelve--but are not self-pitying innocents in a world made miserable by adults. They create their own world, their own misery..."
