The Nature of Evil
There is Simon who declares that “ there is evil, but it is not wither outside men or confined to certain men, it is inside of everyone”.
The “beast” is an internal force, present in every individual, and is thus incapable of being truly defeated.
Animal nature is, according to Golding's view, “the essential nature of all human beings”.
The beast is a symbol of brutality, irrational fear. The fact that there is no beast suggests that it is a representation of the evil in human nature.
