In the story Lord Of The Flies there are many instances of figurative language that Golding masterfully crafts for the readers enjoyment. One instance of figurative language is right at the start of the novel. "The incredible pool was only invaded by the sea at high tide." This single sentence clearly paints an image of a beautiful lagoon, so pristine and untouched. Only to be hidden at high tide. The figurative language used is clearly personification, or the act of giving human characteristics to a nonhuman object or animal. Tough this is only one example, throughout the novel Golding continues to use figurative language to enhance the reading experience of Lord of the Flies.
