How can we view Lord of the Flies as a psychological understanding of human kind? Enrich your students’ understanding of Lord of the Flies by viewing it through an allegorical lens. This PowerPoint serves to provide the students through a basic understanding of allegory, to include the basic definition of the literary technique, followed by narrowing the focus to a psychological study of the Id, Ego, and Superego, which can then be compared to various key characters in the novel. Further connections in the PowerPoint include a connection to Dr. Seuss and Harry Potter, in addition to a Writer’s Notebook prompt, asking the students to consider the character connections to the novel. This PowerPoint is an excellent introduction to a more detailed and multi-genre study on allegory in Lord of the Flies (also available for purchase).
