I remember once, how at 3 o'clock in the morning when I began to creep away from the cradle with its sleeping child, she opened her eyes and remarked - "Daddy, say something funny"... (W. Golding, Banquet Sp. 1983)
In many novels Golding has revealed the dark places of human heart, when isolated individuals or small groups are pushed into extreme situations - His work is characterized by exploration of 'the darkness of man's heart', deep spiritual and ethical questions... - Demobilised in 1945, Golding returned to writing and teaching, with a dark view of the European civilization - Recalling later his war experiences, he remarked that "man produces evil - as a bee produces honey"... - Like Ambrose Bierce's 'Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge', the protagonist imagines his survival and struggle against the sea and cold... - The story (The Double Tongue, 1995) was set in ancient Greece, and depicted the life of the last Delphic oracle, the Pythia, who witnesses the rise of the Roman power, and the decline of the Hellenistic culture... - "They cried for their mothers much less often than might have been expected - they were very brown, and filthily dirty"... (from Lord of the Flies)
Golding's view is pessimistic: human nature is inherently corruptible and wicked - Thus the 19th century ideals of progress and education are based on false premises... (W. Golding, Pegasus Author's Calendar)
