"Lord of the Flies" by William Golding: Character Analysis Essay Writing Guide

This advanced handout guides students through the process of writing an essay about William Golding’s iconic and Nobel-prize winning novel Lord of the Flies.

Specifically, the handout teaches students how to write a well-structured, thorough and insightful character analysis.

The handout can be used at any point in your study of the novel, but I recommend that you let your students read at least half (up to Chapter 6: Beast from Air) or to the end before you let them attempt the essay.

Enjoy, and please leave feedback!
