I'm a 3rd year and I have about 2 weeks to finish my dissertation. Before you blame me for being a slacker, let me say that throughout the year too many bad situations happened, I was hospitalised repeatedly and I managed to get an extension until the 5th of August (I could apply for more, but then I wouldn't be graduating with everyone else and I've already been accepted to my Masters).
However as I've only attended one dissertation meeting, I barely know what to do.
I'm investigating crime and morality in East Lynne, Lady Audley's Secret and Tess of the D'Urbervilles and I have a few questions and ANY answers would be extremely appreciated.
1. About how many references/ sources should an English Lit dissertation have?
2. Apart from the fact that it's obviously much longer, are there any differences in the dissertation and the essays? I'm asking cause I tend to get high 2.1s in my essays so I'm wondering if I can just approach it by developing a thesis, have just a few sources and then basically write 3 essays where I constantly go back to my thesis etc.
3. Should a conversation about the texts' context take place in the introduction or at the beginning of each chapter?
4. How specific should my thesis statement be? Can I have one for each text if they're all focusing on back to the same point but in different ways?
