If you were to use specific examples, i would reccomend King Lear or Hamlet. Or you could look at it in terms of analysis of characters

There’s a lot of example of people ‘losing their minds’ in Shakespeare’s works, maybe try looking up articles or journals on Shakespeare and madness to begin with?

Ah yes I haven't made it very clear Basically I want to write a dissertation for my EPQ and I want the theme to be Shakespeare and mental health. However I need to come up with my own question and I'm really struggling to. It obviously needs to be wide enough for debate but also not too wide that it will be overwhelming. So I was just wondering if anyone has any good questions that centre around Shakespeare and mental health?? Once I have come up with the question it'll be all systems go but the tricky bit is finding the right question !

Perhaps, 'How does shakespeare present mental health/explore (the theme of) mental health in.... (play/specific scenes/ character)

Thats how i would look at (almost as a typical gcse style question)

It allows you to debate and explore, without being too much

Hope that helps

Yeah thats really helpful thank you. However for my epq do you reckon the question needs to have a bit more element of debate ? Like do you think it needs to be in the form of a question?

Could i also direct you to the following thread:

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...6535458&page=3

It is a voluntary, online mentorship scheme to help year 9/10s with GCSE work/ revision during this lockdown. If your in year 11 or higher i.e. a level, we can apply to become a mentor. This involves one to one email between you and your mentee about sunjects you are happy to help with.

Pros as a yr 9/10:
Help lessen the burden during this time
Also helps if you feel behind/ dont understand content/ struggle with homelearning
Pros as yr 11 or higher:
Keeps your mind active
Great for personal statement/ interviews


Please spread the word.

Sorry this isnt related to your thread, i was just being a bit cheeky
