Biblical Allusions in "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding
Simon, the Christ Figure
References to various religions in novels are made to help the author illustrate to
the reader the situation in which he has placed his characters. In The Lord of the Flies,
William Golding uses biblical allusion to enhance the reader's perspective on the story. In
events and metaphors, the character Simon stands out as the Christ figure, and the Beast
plays the part of the Devil.
As Simon is out walking, he comes across a group of small children trying to reach
fruit hanging from the higher branches of the tree.
