The Lord of the Flies is a book published in 1954. It is about a bunch of boys who were from England. They are now living on a deserted island where they try to live and rule the island themselves. These boys were being transported on an airplane that crashed. They either swam to the island or the plane crashed on the island.
The island is located near or in the Pacific Ocean. All of the survivors of the plane are adolescent age or before that. They try to survive by hunting for food. As they try to live on this island, one of the boys named Ralph has become the leader of the group. When Jack paints his face, it is symbolic that he is now one of the savages.
