Advanced Higher English Dissertation Books!?Watch
My English teacher started working on dissertation work with our class. I need to pick two books either with the same theme or by the same author to do a compere and contrast type of dissertation. I have a few books in mind, however I don't know what books to match them with, so I do be grateful for any sort of advice and help.
Books I have considered:
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Any sort of suggestions will be appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
I've read The Awakening- so can't help with that one.
But you could link Madam Bovary and Vanity Fair by William Thackery- both about social climbing and with a strong female protagonist. (It's a pretty long novel though- and a bit laborious to get through).
And for Jane Eyre a good comparison is Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys- it's a prequel to Bronte's original book, put puts a greater emphasis on race relations. It's a really interesting read- and makes you look at Jane Eyre in a completely different light.
