In the book Lord of the Flies, can you give me some examples of a metaphor in there? One that I can draw on a price of paper.

What about the vines hanging from trees that become "snake things" to the "littluns"? Or, in Chapter 4 of "Lord of the Flies," Jack smears clay ("dazzle paint") on his face, then black, then he changes the colors making a savage mask. Another metaphor exists in Chapter 5 as Ralph walks down a narrow path and "finds himself understanding the wearisomeness of this life where every path was an improvisation and...one's waking life was spent watching one's feet."
N.B. The question somehow has been misplaced into "Candide."
