Hi all, I have some questions/need for help:

basically my literature teacher told us what books we were studying for our coursework (Great Gatsby and Wuthering Heights) but she also told us that we had the opportunity to pick our own novels/poems/plays if we wanted too.

Now, I'm not really a fan of either novel, and was planning to write about something relating to WW1/fantasy/dystopia - does anyone have an suggestions as to which novels/poems/plays I could use?

I did WW1 for AS so I had to read MANY things for that. I can help you with that. Since this will be a period analysis, you could focus on contextual factors of WW1. Some major themes presented in WW1 Lit are: women and the home-front, man's inhumanity to man, futility/reality of war, Physical/mental/spiritual consequences, politics and patriotism.

Fantasy and Dystopia will be more of a genre based analysis. I have no idea about Fantasy sorry. But Dystopia is usually written about social antirealism. Texts of a dystopian nature is usually to critique society of the time. Which includes political, social and cultural tensions. So you can look at whatever you want to.

I could give you loads and loads and loads of combinations but that won't be any good. You should try and pick what focus you'd be interested in and then come back to this thread and I can recommend to text pairings based on your decision.
