William Golding: is a British novelist, poet, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1983. His novels are full of allegorical meaning, widely integrated into classical literature, mythology, Christian culture and symbolism. The themes of his works are generally related to darkness and evil, but his novels also express a dim optimism. His first novel "Lord of the Flies" (1954) highlights the theme he has been discussing all the time: the struggle between human innate barbarism and civilized rationality. This novel also established Golding's world reputation.
