Thom Dunn As a student at Ohio Wesleyan, I met William Golding sometime near 1960. It was a meeting of English majors in the attic apartment of Bill Heald, a faculty of blessed memory. His wife asked about sex in Lord of the Flies and expressed incredulity when Golding said there "Was no sex" in the book.

Sex only in the Freudian sense, the bloodlust of the hunters constituting sublimated male sexuality.

One of my colleagues referred to Freud as "The Viennese witch doctor".
