Golding develops the setting largely through long paragraphs of description. We often find pages of descriptive narrative about the jungle and surrounding area. He expertly infuses these descriptive paragraphs with mood and tone. These paragraphs often represent the character in the book. Jack, for example, often accompanies violent or impending violence in the jungle while Simon represents much more gentle prose describing the jungle.
