Om forfatteren

William Golding was born in Cornwall in 1911 and was educated at Marlborough Grammar School and at Brasenose College, Oxford. Before he became a schoolmaster he was an actor, a lecturer, a small-boat sailor and a musician. A now rare volume, Poems, appeared in 1934. In 1940 he joined the Royal Navy and saw action against battleships, and also took part in the pursuit of the Bismarck. He finished the war as a Lieutenant in command of a rocket ship, which was off the French coast for the D-Day invasion, and later at the island of Walcheren. After the war he returned to Bishop Wordsworth's School in Salisbury and was there when his first novel, Lord of the Flies, was published in 1954. He gave up teaching in 1961. Lord of the Flies was filmed by Peter Brook in 1963. Golding listed his hobbies as music, chess, sailing, archaeology and classical Greek (which he taught himself). Many of these subjects appear in his essay collections The Hot Gates and A Moving Target. He won the Booker Prize for his novel Rites of Passage in 1980, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983. He was knighted in 1988. He died at his home in the summer of 1993. The Double Tongue, a novel left in draft at his death, was published in June 1995. William Golding (1911-1993) was a Booker and Nobel Prize winning author, best known for his first novel, Lord of the Flies, published originally in 1954 and adapted for film in 1963. His other works include The Inheritors (1955), Pincher Martin (1956), Rites of Passage (1980), The Double Tongue (published posthumously in 1995) a now rare volume, Poems (1934) and the essay collections The Hot Gates and A Moving Target.
Golding was educated at Marlborough Grammar School and at Brasenose College, Oxford. Before his writing career, Golding was a schoolmaster. He was also a keen actor, musician and small-boat sailor.
In 2008, The Times ranked Golding third on their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".

– Den har jeg ikke lest enda.

Beatrice – 20.05.2005

– Denne boken går med sin historie inn i menneskets psyke og forteller oss hvor primitive vi egentlig er. I begynnelsen virker dette som en enkel historie som omhandler en gruppe gutter alene på en øde øy, det er ikke før man leser mellom linjene at man forstår den virkelige handlingen. Boka virker hyggelig i starten, den har en nesten barnslig historien om hvordan hverdagen til en gjeng med unge gutter utarter seg når de ikke har noen voksne som bestemmer. Men etter hvert som fortelling utvikler seg blir den uhyggelig og nærmest grotesk når man ser hvordan en slik situasjon kan påvirke mennesket. Dette er helt klart en bok for de som liker en god tankevekker.

– Med "Lord of the flies" har William Golding definetivt laget et mesterverk! Boken handler om en gjeng engleske gutter som krasjer på en øde øy og ingen voksne overlever styrten. Guttene velger Ralph til leder, og det er han som er hovedpersonen i boken. I begynnelsen av boken går alt helt fint, de tenner et varselbål på toppen av øya og lager visse lover og regler. Etterhvert bryter først noen reglene, så glemmer noen å passe på bålet. Etterhvert utvikler Ralph også et hatforhold til Jack, en av de andre eldre guttene, som også vill være leder. For hver side blir "Lord of the Flies" bare mer og mer grotesk. Jeg finner det umulig og forklare hvordan det føles å lese boken, dette er en bok alle bør lese minst en gang i livet.
