aqa a level english literature coursework ideas pls!

We have to start thinking about coursework for A Level English Literature (aqa) and we have to compare a pre-1900s literature with a post-1900s literature. I am pretty sure that I want to do Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood for my modern literature, but I am struggling to find possible ideas for pre 1900 books. If anyone has any ideas that would be great
The themes I might explore:
- art
- femininity
- childhood
- nature
