    hey guys, im doing my first year of IB and i'm kinda stuck about what exactly to do my EE on. I know that I want to do English so i've been reading around for a while and I came across The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I'm currently reading it now. I kind of came up with the question How does Oscar Wilde present youth and beauty as a destructive force in the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray? I was just wondering if that would be a valid question. Is it too narrow?too broad? Suggestions are also welcome. Thank you!!

    I've finished my EE but it's on history. However, I do study english literature hl... Most of the English EEs at my school focuses on a comparison of two texts (so that it's more original, more different angles to analyze). the question itself is fine, but i don't know the text so I probably cannot tell you whether it's too specific / vague.

    I would suggest you to ask your supervisor tbh, it's early at your stage, but once you were assigned one, go ask for more advices good luck

    Definitely, agree with this. I am a second year IB student as well and I did my EE in History as well :rofl:

    I somehow doubt that you can write a 3000-4000 words essay on that question as it is a bit too narrow (I am sure there is a lot to talk about knowing Oscar Wilde). I think a comparison between two text would be the best like the previous user suggested. Good luck

    I want to write from English A literature, category 2. I want my research question to be something like "To what extend does alienation from society cause individuals to judge/criticize it?" The books I chose are Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai. please help? our teacher is so terrific that she wasn't familiar with the ee guide enough to know that such a two-books-one-in-translation essay was possible... EE Report Form 1 is due next week, she already "approved" the above topic but I doubt she knows what shes doing....
