Macbeth & Lord of the flies.

William Golding most certainly knew how to partaya power struggle in the lives of British school boys when trapped on a desert island. In the very beginning of the book, this duel was introduced between the two main characters, Jack and Ralph. However, despite the fact that the boys have different motives, these two essentially and dramatically different boys can turn a rivalry somewhat akin to that of siblings into a war worthy of the Spartans.

Power in Macbeth

Macbeth, after hearing the prophecies from the witches, begins to think of the power that he would have if he were to become king.In the play, Macbeth, by William Shakespeare many characters are obsessed with the thought of gaining power. However, none more so than the lead character, Macbeth. Throughout the entire play, Macbeth's actions are controlled by either his quest to gain more power or the power that his wife, Lady Macbeth, holds over him.

In Macbeth and Lord of the flies the author shows that if everybody revealed their true natures, the world would tear itself apart.

Besides the murders of Simon and Piggy, evil is also demonstrated through the scenes when the pig is killed, Piggy's glasses are stolen, and the conch shell is smashed. In Macbeth, man's sinful nature is seen quite early in the story when Lady Macbeth urges her husband to kill the king after he is told a prophecy that he will become king.

In both books the problem of sin is never controlled. Although Macbeth never changed, it is likely that when the boys went back to civilisation they became ‘normal’ again.

Both Macbeth and Lord of the Flies speak about the problem of man's sinful nature. Though they seem like innocent stories at first, the reader gradually realizes that the authors are, in fact, speaking about the entire human population. Both authors are making a single point: All humans have a sinful nature, and if it were given free rein, mankind would destroy itself.
