EE Topic: The French Revolution

So, I'm planning on doing my extended essay on the French revolution, around the years of the Reign of Terror.

I was thinking along the lines of "To what extent was the Reign of Terror justified?" as a topic question, but it still seems kind of broad to me. I want to do something related to Robespierre as well, but I'm not sure what. I'm just panicking because my supervisor hasn't given me any feedback about my ideas, and I'm worried that I'll start off on the wrong foot and it will be too late to change things around later...

I agree, I think your Reign of Terror question is a bit broad. Try to focus on one aspect of the Reign of Terror--- what caused it? The effect of the Reign of Terror on literature/arts of the time? Was the Reign of Terror a gross exaggeration of the Enlightenment ideals that caused the French Revolution? There's so much out there that you could focus on with this topic!

Good luck!
