The narrator in Lord of the Flies moves back and forth (omnisciently, as you might imagine) between different scenes and thoughts. The best example of this is Chapter Eight, when we jump back and forth to Jack’s pig hunt, Simon’s meditation, and Ralph and Piggy building the fire. This omniscience allows for an objectivity that would be lost to us were the narration to stay with, let’s say, just Ralph. We simply see things happening, without the filter of a character’s judgment. Instead, we see all and judge for ourselves.
