One of the deepest symbols that heat represents in literature (right back to classical times) is that of Hell. For example, you can’t get a much hotter image than the image of Dante’s Inferno. This image is used much in Christian literature themes, and no less so in the novel ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding. He also deals with the very deep themes of evil and hell and these equate with images of heat in the book. For me, the strongest image of this is in the choirboys finding their old warm heavy costumes too hot and itchy and inappropriate for the setting they find themselves in (hell dressed up as heaven.) So they devest themselves layer by layer of the veneer of Christianity,goodness and civilization – symbolized by the ‘hell’s hothouse’ they are now in.
