Lord of the Flies

What phylosophical, political and religious elements appear in Lord of the flies?

I only know that it should be connected with some theories of Freud, Darwin, Russo and also original sin... please help

Hey, this is a pretty big question for the space. The whole book can be seen as a Biblical allusion if you want. There is of course the Darwinian survival of the fittest and Freudian "Id" complex combined with some latent sexual desire. It's really a very broad question. Check out the GradeSaver themes page and some of this will be there,
