In this category, we will examine the absence of female characters in William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. Despite being a story about a group of young boys stranded on an uninhabited island, the complete lack of female characters has been a topic of discussion and debate among literary scholars for decades.

We will delve into the possible reasons behind Golding’s decision, including his own experiences with gender roles and the social norms of the time period in which the book was written. We will also explore the implications of this absence, including the ways in which it reinforces traditional gender stereotypes and limits the scope of the book’s themes.

Join us as we explore this fascinating aspect of Lord of the Flies and uncover the deeper meanings behind the exclusion of female characters from the story.
