    For my English coursework I'm comparing The Catcher in the Rye and A Clockwork Orange. I'm not asking anyone to do this for me as I already have a pretty solid idea of what I want to do and a good foundation of it. I just want to know if there's any ideas I may have missed out or are better than my current ones as I am really trying to get top marks with this.

    So does anyone have any good comparative ideas relating to these two books?
    I'm currently structuring my essay around the alienation of Alex and Holden.

    How about doing something like "To what extent to the male protagonist challenge the views of conformity to which they were written and received."

    From this, one of your main points could be alienation and separation from the outside world maybe?
