The first edition of this critical study of the work of William Golding first appeared in 1967 and offered critical readings of the five novels which then constituted Golding's oeuvre, beginning with "Lord of the Flies" and "The Inheritors". The study was revised in 1984 to take account of later writings up to "Darkness Visible" and "Rites of Passage", the first volume in his seas trilogy, which won the Booker Prize. The third edition considers the subsequent works - "The Paper Men", "Close Quarters" and "Fire Down Below" - as well as the unfinished novel "The Double Tongue" which was published posthumously.
