About this EE idea?

I was thinking of doing my EE in either History or English A1. I was also interested in Politics or Film but I have studied neither of these subjects and this would be a detriment. So it seems to be down to just History or Language A1 and I have to know my topic by next Friday because apparently we're spending the whole day researching and planning the essay: 1/5 of our total time allowed on the EE...

So for A1 I was thinking of a novel comparison, having studied [i]Nineteen Eighty-four [/i](and in depth by myself in the oral presentation) and I thought of choosing [i]We[/i] by Yevgeny Zamtayin. But I just realised an essay in A1 must feature literature originally written in the A1 language. To add to this, I haven't even read [i]We[/i] yet, but am very keen to and compare it with 1984. Am I to move on?

Perhaps do some research on the books, and if it suits the criteria, go ahead. It shouldn't take much time going onto google. [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Zamyatin"]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Zamyatin[/url] has a nice article linking both books, try to read it before deciding.

for an EE in Language A1, if you are doing a comaprison of two novels, one of them must be written in your native lanuage (so for you one of those two novel must have been written in english first.) so i am pretty sure yoou are good with your two books.
