I still need to read that!

I would recommend what theme or focus you want to write about.

What kind of literature are you interested in?

When I did my coursework I did the corruption of morality and its consequences because I like transgressive literature.

I suggest you first find out what you'd like to write and research about. If you already have an idea, I'd be more than happy to develop your idea with you.

Yeah i did AQA A but with the spec that just ended.
In year 12 i did ww1 and then for year 13 it was love through the ages for exam.

coursework isnt about love. You can do anything you want if your english teacher is flexible.

We had to do 3 texts. The compulsory texts we had to do was Enduring Love by Ian McEwan, Othello by Shakespeare and then I chose to do Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

Only difference is you pick 2 texts and you dont have to include Shakespeare.

Erm I've never read Fanny Hill although I really want to. From reading the synopsis, I don't think you'd have much to compare. Dorian Gray is all about the temptations of sin and the consequences of what happens when you go against the morality of society in a hedonistic fashion. It explores a little of sexuality, but not something that's major as the sexuality in Gray is an undertone. Fanny Hill is an erotic novel that follows a young prostitute .

What themes would you be looking at if you were to do Fanny Hill?

Erm, I have a lot of favourite texts some include Dorian Gray, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Equus, Trainspotting and Dracula!

Do you have a favourite text?
