I am sitting English and I need two novels with similar themes. However, both novels should be by the same author. I was thinking along the lines of comparing George Orwell's use of oppression in 1984 and another novel or using Dickens and his play on Victorian England poverty.

I'm a little confused... Are you looking for two novels by the same author or two novels with similar themes?

Just so you know, the AH dissertations that focus on literary devices do the best. Remember that the the thematic messages aren't the number 1 focus during your study of literature at AH; but, rather, how the literary devices (whatever they may be) portray these messages and what the significance may be. And, don't just look at ordinary/general techniques. Instead, look at what the novel/writer is known for (what pertinent techniques make the text so special).

For example, T.S. Eliot uses a lot of traditional allusions in his poetry and that's a key feature of his writing. He also uses free form instead of the various poetic forms employed by both contemporary and historical poets.
