I'm writing my coursework, and I've chosen my title as 'beauty and aging'. Dickens' 'Great Expectations' is my core text, along with Shakespeare sonnets, and 'A Streetcar named desire as my 3rd (minor text, to illuminate my points).
But writing it out now, I'm having some major trouble; I can only think of tenuous links such as: Miss Havisham's ghastly appearance is an allegory of betrayal; Estella's appearance doesn't reflect her unsympathetic and cold personality (to put it bluntly).
I don't want to go through each character, because this will make my essay sound too much like a category. Preferably, I'd like to have a critics quote (covering the theme of appearance and aging) as my main title, because that would probably give me a stronger scaffolding for my essay- but I genuinely could find none.
Surely there must be more to the title, but I keep on doubting myself.
If anyone's got any advice, that would be great.
Thank you!

Instead of GE, you should have chosen Dorian Gray! That is a classic example of beauty. You should probably have named your essay "beauty and it's consequences" or something like that?
