Lord of the Flies – ‘Boys Own’ Manuscript On Show at Oxford

By

The Bodleian Libraries at Oxford are putting on show for the first time the original manuscript of the ‘boys own’ essential reading material Lord of the Flies. It is a human behaviour story par excellence about order and chaos, capture and torture, morality and immorality, being civilised and the dreadful consequences of completely uncivilised behaviour.
