5.0 von 5 Sternen Individual vs Society., 18. Oktober 2011
Three different stories in three different ages. They are all about an individual in a moral conflict with society or with its rulers. In the novels written by William Golding -from "Lord of the flies" to "The Double Tongue"- there is always a conflict with any form of society, even the most primitive and even among children ('Lord of the Flies').

This three short novels set in varying places and times exhibit the manifold talents of a writer who has been called the most original and imaginative of his generation. The title piece depicts a challenge to primal authority as the god-ruler of an ancient civilization lingers near death. "Clonk Clonk" is a convincing account of a crippled youth's triumph over his tormentors in a primitive society. "Envoy Extraordinary" is a tale of Imperial Rome and of the poetic illegitimate son of the emperor, whom the emperor loves more than he does his own arrogant, loutish heir.

This is Golding at his best
