English EPQ ideas (or lack thereof)Watch
I am hoping to do an EPQ in a literature-based subject but am having a really hard idea choosing what to write about. I understand the question has to be very specific but arguable from both sides and have enough research papers and resources to use.
I am interested in maybe writing about something to do with women's portrayal in Hamlet but fear this may be vastly overdone, or about the presentation of certain characters in Les Misérables (such as the similarities and differences between Enjolras and Montparnasse or about the different interpretations of the relationship between Enjolras and Grantaire as portrayed through the use of classical references and stuff) but don't know if that's just ridiculously niche. I've also read some of Wilde lately (?), and [hunts bookshelf frantically] dystopian (The Handmaid's Tale, 1984 and Brave New World) and Gothic (Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, and the The Monk lurking about somewhere, ready to read) literature.
I'd ideally like to do something to do with feminism and/or something that will tie in with things I will probably study later in university (classical literature, Shakespeare). I'd probably prefer prose than poetry.
I'm having a really hard time thinking up anything so any ideas are very welcome!
