The Scorpion God. It is just understanding. The setting of the robinsonade is highly allegorical. In the following paper this is going to be proved on hand the following definition: Setting is the entire environment for the action of a fictional work.
Settings include the place, the time period as well as the historical milieu, and the political, social, and perhaps even spiritual realities italics: mine.
The location of the island is vague because for the reader it is only important to know that a group of English school boys between the ages of six and twelve are stranded on an island with no adult control anywhere about. They now have to build up their own society. According to the Internet, Golding parodied the central plot and theme of the latter: In Coral Island, two British schoolboys, Ralph, Jack and an Australian boy, Peterkin, are marooned on a desert island. They encounter adventures with cannibals, pirates, wild animals etc.
Whilst Golding uses a similar idea and even uses the same names for the two main characters, his vision of how British schoolboys would have behaved in these circumstances is very different to that of Ballantyne.
This is ironic in so far as the boys are trapped on an island that constantly reminds them of a chance for a rescue that does not come for a long time. The island as such is a good place. It provides fresh water, fruits from various plants and meat from wild pigs. The jungle is located at one side of the island and has a rocky mountain above it. In the dense jungle there are plenty of exotic plants, among them fruit trees.
Why is Ralph so angry that the fire went out? A ship passed by the island. Now they have no warmth. Piggy b. Ralph c. Simon What does Ralph do after the bonfire? He calls an assembly.
