Hi, my EPQ question is 'To what extent did the publication of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time dismiss stigmas surrounding autism in society?'. As part of this, I am analysing the book from a literary perspective. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on the best way to do this. So far, I've picked out the 5 main elements of fiction: plot, point of view, character, setting and theme as my subsections. Any help is greatly appreciated.



Also, it would be super useful if anyone does my EPQ questionnaire, it's super short and focuses on autism stigma. Thank you so much https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/RDDW7JL

I can’t comment on the book as I’ve not read it - But I have seen the play! That’s something you can comment on, how adaptations of the book have been brought to life on stage in a visual representation of autism.

Looking for literary critics will help, looking for what the author may have said online or in articles etc.

That sounds really interesting! I love The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and I certainly think the presentation of autism helps break down the stigma. It sounds like you've got a pretty solid plan so far. I would just add that perhaps you should do some research on the way autism has been perceived historically and the stereotypes and assumptions people make about it and then how the author manages to dispell these... Sorry that wasn't very helpful but it sounds like a great idea for an epq so good luck!

Thank you for replying, I think literary critics greatly help and especially the author's view as that shapes everything

I've done a bit of research on previous autism but I agree doing more helps me analyse the book as well e.g. Rain Man. This was actually super helpful
