The moral of the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding is that power must be handled delicately. Golding also teaches the reader that evil is not restricted to those who continuously do evil deeds, but that people who are inherently good may sometimes commit to doing evil acts, as shown to the reader by Ralph's character.

In 'Lord of the Flies,' Golding creates a Christ-like figure of Simon as a metaphor for innocence and sacrifice.

The Hunters, who represent the primitive savagery of human nature, kill him when he attempts to tell them the truth about 'the Beast.'
