I really need some suggestions on what text I can apply Marxist or feminist literary theory to! I originally did Marxism in Lord of the Flies, however my teacher said I can't do that as its a GCSE text (even though we were never taught it in our school).

Some preferably short texts would be appreciated. Thanks.

The Great Gatsby or Jane Eyre are the most obvious examples for both.

Feminism:

-A Handmaid's Tale
-Jane Eyre
-Wide Sargasso Sea
-Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
-Anna Karenina
-Arguably, Alice in Wonderland
-Tess of the D'Ubervilles
-Water for Elephants
-The Hunger Games

Marxist:

-The Grapes of Wrath
-1984
-An Inspector Calls
-Utopia
-For whom the bell tolls
-Brave New World
-Slaughterhouse-Five
-Catch-22
-V for Vendetta
-A Clockwork Orange
-Fahrenheit 451
-Hunger Games (yes, the Hunger Games)

Alice in Wonderland could be interesting, thanks for the suggestion. I've also been looking at Watership Down, but that could be a bit too long for a 1,500 - 2,000 word essay.

No problem, and that is an interesting one, never thought of that before. Actually, add Howard's End to your list as well!
