Hi All,

I am in the process of choosing a topic for my EPQ- typically me I am the last one to have to decide, I am painfully indecisive! I had hoped perhaps to mix English lit and Anthropology as I hope to study either at a Russell Group for university. My current idea is this:

To what extent and in what ways has the work of homosexual poets changed in context to their social circumstances?

I hoped to look at poets such as Oscar Wilde, Walt Whitman, W.H Auden, A.E Housman... (I can't do Sassoon or Owen as we're doing Regeneration for our coursework- devastated is an understatement!)

Does anyone have any thought or tips- is this feasible?

TIA x

omg this actually sounds really interesting O_o What did your supervisor say?

My opinion isn't really that good because I don't know much about poetry ahha xD But it does sound like something I would read if it were a newspaper article

Thanks so much!

They said I needed to narrow my focus and set a specific time frame. Really the idea hinges on the hope that their poetry shows some kind of trend or progression so I need to do a lot of research before I submit my idea
