I have chosen to study The Picture of Dorian Gray for my coursework and I would like to take a Marxism approach but I cannot think of a question to start my essay.

Any suggestions would be great...

Have you looked at that? It looks quite good. I googled the title of this thread and quite a few results showed up.

I’ve chosen to study this too. I thought of perhaps going along the lines of looking at how Owen’s class and status etc... influenced the book or how the reader can easily see the gaps in the text. Basically looking at bias but I honestly haven’t got a clue. Aagggg English Lit is so stressful!

i've chosen to do the same thing for A-level courswork, try the relationship between Lord henry and Dorian alongside the relevance of the Vanes as the only real representations of the proletariat. The comparison between the marxist opinion on art and the Aesthetic movements opinion on art as well.

I’m kinda thinking to do something like this. I tried pulling together an intro.

To what extent do you agree that Oscar Wilde’s presentation of the arts, in the picture of Dorian Grey, is a representation of “the faults of society” in relation to the Victorian social hierarchy.
