Ok. For past 2 weeks I was under the impression that I could apply Marxist critical ideas to the texts 'Dracula' and 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and compare both texts according to the critical ideas. My teacher did not mind whatsoever. My question is- " The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life." How far do you agree with this statement when discussing Dracula and A Streetcar Named Desire? is that is it acceptable for me to do theory in a comparison essay.
My other question is that I am unsure of an alternative question to use instead of my original one. I have outlined themes in both texts-
Dracula- Sexual repression of women, consequences of modernity, madness, good vs evil, superstitions and logical reason.
Streetcar- Fantasy and reality, death and sex, sexual desire, interior and exterior and masculinity and feminity.
Can you please help me think of an alternative question if my original is unacceptable?
