Definition
caught in

or:

twisted together into a confusing mass
  • ...among the tangled foliage. Ralph disentangled himself cautiously and stole away through the branches.
    p. 9.8
disentangled = removed something caught by something else

(Editor's note:  The prefix "dis-" in disentangled reverses the meaning of entangled. This is the same pattern as seen in words like disagree, disconnect, and disappear.)
There are no more uses of "entangled" in Lord of the Flies.
