Nature's Symbolism

Much symbolism is used in William Golding's Lord of the Flies. The nature on the island
is used as the primary source of symbolism. There are three main uses of nature's

in any situation.


The first important part of nature's symbolism is a pink conch shell. At the beginning of
the book, it was found by Ralph (13). The conch shell represents power and authority.

power, like a king and his scepter and crown, or other things which show who has power.

Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

  • Americanization
    Americanization "If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase to make money. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
