'In gothic literature the use of the eyes and eyebrows are key to communicating complex emotions and promoting character development.' How far is this true of (insert novel/s here)?

I like that, but I’m trying to come up with a joke if that makes sense? My friend came up with “eyebrows on fleek: the importance of eyebrows in gothic literature” but idk lmao

I would advise against you using slang terminology that your examiner will (a) not appreciate/understand (b) think is a reflection of a limited vocabulary. This is an English dissertation after all, and using appropriate register is important. It's fine to come up with a fun title, but don't take this too far.

You could go down the route of a pretty bad pun: "Browsing the Gothic"?

Or alliterative (depending on texts you are looking at) : "Blood, brows, and things that go bump in the night"

Or the witty: "Hair raising gothic - an exploration of eyebrows in (and name the texts)"

Thank you!!! This isn’t any sort of actual assessment I’m doing it as an extra just to have a laugh with my teacher (I am literally the biggest English nerd in the world 😂) but your ideas are actually amazing
