I want to do The Handmaid's Tale with The Trial by Kafka,
being focused on Dystopia,
what kind of questions could I base my essay on?

Edit;
Now most probably comparing with Brave New World than The Trial

Heya, I'm going to put this in the English forum for you as you should get more responses there.

You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you!

Although both works deal with dystopia's, they are not exactly alike. You could explore how "dystopia" is used in each work to highlight the anxieties and concerns of each author/time these books were written.

You'll get a lot of ideas from here, which is what I use for my IB studies. My sister does A-levels and gets help there when she needs to complete her essays or find essay topics.
