The Shadows

"Two boys rolled out a pile of brushwood and dead leaves, two dim shadows talking sleepily to each other" (Golding, pg.96). I chose this quote to show a metaphor. The two boys are being compared to shadows. The boys are almost like the shadows of the morning all you can see is their black silhouettes talking in a low, sleepy  whisper.  Golding chooses to use a metaphor in this passage to go deeper in describing what's going on. He transports you to as if you were with the boys.
I chose this picture to represent this quote because all you can see is the shadowy silhouettes of these two boys.  Also the boys hair to the right is messy and doesn't look like it's been washed in a few days, which also gives the effect of the boys in Lord of The Flies and how they haven't had a proper shower in awhile.
