Well, my school's requested that I should write a dissertation on any subject of my choosing, however, this request may be repealed. I was thinking of writing something along the lines of
"Joyce Carol Oates' Zombie IS John Stienbeck's Of Mice and Men"....
just: something literary. Have you guys any ideas?
"Why I believe that J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer and Suzanne Collins are really the same person."
Stephen King and Danielle Steel have never been in the same room together. It is not a coincidence. They were also born the same year. That's a coincidence.
pretty funny, pretty funny.
Seriously =_= this gets me university credit.
Milton and the Bible. George Eliot and religious doubt. Gender representation in the gothic novel. Jack Kerouac and travel writing. Why philosophy matters to literature. Psychology in twenty first century literature.
I'll think about this some more.
God in modern literature, from Franny and Zooey to The Color Purple to Under the Dome. I did that one and it was fascinating.
Social networking and its effect on teen literature, or why YA novels are "bite-sized"
Effect of markets on literature -- is it good or bad that books rarely stick to one genre in hopes of enticing multiple demographics? Is it a good thing that many YA novels are meant to be read with parents, or attract parents, like Twilight, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games?
Twilight is meant to be read by parents? What the actual fuck?(The dissertation is supposed to be 6k)
"God in modern literature, from Franny and Zooey to The Color Purple to Under the Dome. I did that one and it was fascinating."
This is a good idea. You can really stretch that out by adding more and more books. I did a paper on Franny and Zooey in college, so i know you can get a lot of material out of that one alone.
