what are some of the irony of lord of the flies?
-British boys should have represented the height of civilization yet they turn into "savages".
-Piggy is an important character yet we never find out his name. He is mocked despite being the smartest boy on the island.
-Simon is a Christ figure. He knows the truth of the pilot. He comes down the mountain to save the boys (both literally and metaphorically) yet is mistaken as the beast and killed.
-It is ironic that they are saved by destroying themselves (lighting their island on fire).
There are more but these are pretty important!
