Instructions for answering the questions:
This poster was made by a high school student to accompany a school production of Lord of the Flies. The novel is often interpreted as an allegory for the savagery of man and particularly the innate cruelty of children, who left to their own devices, will abandon all civilising influences and descend into a primitive state of hunting and killing.
What does this representation of children say about the nature of childhood?
How does it concur with or contradict other conceptualisations of childhood? What are your own views on these themes? You could consider the concepts of children as inherently innocent, versus children as inherently wicked.You could also consider how the views of childhood represented in the image and in the novel relate to children’s real experiences of violence (such as bullying or war), and how adults understand these experiences.
