Rites of Passage is the first book in Goldings A Sea Trilogy. Sailing to Australia in the early years of the nineteenth century, Edmund Talbot keeps a journal to amuse his godfather back in England. Full of wit and disdain, he records the mounting tensions on the ancient warship, where officers, sailors, soldiers and emigrants jostle in the crammed spaces below decks. Then a single passenger, the obsequious Reverend Colley, attracts the animosity of the sailors, and in the seclusion of the focastle something happens to bring him into a hell of self-degradation, where shame is a force dea. It is in the form of a journal written by Edmund Talbot, a young aristocrat. His influential godfather has arranged for him to be employed with the Governor of New South Wales, and presents Talbot with a journal to record the significant events of the journey. He considers it a time of reflection for the young man. Talbot begins by describing the passengers of all classes getting a tour of the ship and crew members, wh. Sir William Gerald Golding, CBE FRSL 19 September 1911 19 June 1993 was a British novelist, playwright, and poet. Best known for his debut novel Lord of the Flies 1954, he would go on to publish another eleven novels in his lifetime. In 1980, he was awarded the Booker Prize for Rites of Passage, the first novel in what became his sea trilogy, To the Ends of the Earth. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1983. William Golding's Rites of Passage is one of those books you can't say much about, since it ruins the tale. On surface, it is about Edward Talbot's voyage to Australia in 1812. Talbot is a pompous young man, and aristocrat, who happens to keep a detailed journal. As the pages go by, you see glimmerings of maturity, and a sure eye for recording details. The book starts out in a comic vein, one that had me thinking early on of the Flashman novels. I never thought of Golding as being funny before. William Golding's Rites of Passage is one of those books you can't say muc.

In his sequel to Rites of Passage, Golding sets aside the epistolary format, and the novel finds a unique rhythm and voice. Following the adventures of young Talbot after the tragedy of Parson Colley, the novel is pitched often as a fever dream, with our protagonist alternating between various ailments and traumas that lend an unreliability to most of the events that transpire around him. Here, our young and ambitious narrator experiences a taste of combat, a hint of love, and the literal terror of his world falling apart. William Golding's Rites of Passage is the first novel in the To the Ends of the Earth trilogy. Talbot describes passengers of all classes of British society, all of whom have had employment arranged by Talbot's influential grandfather. Writings in the journal begin to concern a passenger named Reverend Colley, who is persecuted by Captain Anderson. Upon the crew reaching the equatorial belt, Colley is found in a drunken stupor.

Sam Jordison: William Golding appears in uncharacteristically breezy form with his Booker winner. For a while. Before reading Rites of Passage, I was curious to know how it had triumphed over both Anthony Burgess's Earthly Powers and JL Carr's glorious A Month in the Country in the 1980 Booker. Now, I can only assume that it beat them up. This book is a brute. It's also a canny fighter, employing the most devious feints before landing its punches. Indeed, if it weren't written by William Golding, it would be easy to mistake the first 50 or so pages of Rites of Passage for. William Golding.
