At the end of the novel the naval officer brings the boys back to civilization, meaning that humanity can be returned to civilization. Demonstrate...


In accord with the post of mstokes, the fact that a naval officer arrives and the boys are to be taken back to civilization in a battle ship, leaves much doubt in the mind of the reader that civilization, as such, has ever been as perfect as Piggy has imagined, and that "adults know how to make things right." After all, there is a war going on in the adult world, too.

Added to this fact, as Thomas Wolfe wrote, "You can't go home again."  That is, after having certain experiences, one cannot return to the innocent state that one was in prior to these experiences--"Ralph wept for the end of innocence...."  This adage is also demonstrated in the reaction of Jack, who

carried the remains of a pair of spectacles at his waist, started forward, then changed his mind and stood still.

Clearly, the rescue has come too late.
