Notes Rites of Passage is a novel written by William Golding, and is the first volume in the To the Ends of the Earth trilogy. Set on a former British man-of-war transporting migrants to Australia in the early 19th century, the novels explore themes of class (assumed status) and man's reversion to savagery when isolated, in this case, the closed society of the ship's passengers and crew.
