Hi there,

I sat adv higher English last year and found picking a text for my dissertation quite challenging as well. As far as what you can pick you can pick literally anything which has enough literary weight behind it. people in my year did things like Purple Hibiscus, The Help, Norwegian Wood, Dracula, Bonjour Tristesse, Pride and prejudice and Brave New World. So a really broad range of stuff.
Our teacher and the sqa now really advise that you focus on only one main book so that hopefully makes the decision a bit easier.
hope this helps.

Is this for AH English? What kind of essay are you planning on doing? A discursive one?
