  1. "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle I have to write a TOK essay about this, the main topic is 'reason' I was just wondering what were your thoughts about this quote? What do you think it means? Or is trying to say?
  2. How does Jane Austen use symbolism to explore the themes of Romanticism and Realism in "Sense and Sensibility"? Do you think this is a good question?
  3. Thats what my advisor suggested, but I guess you're right... What if I focus my essay on JUST Romanticism vs Realism in Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" Would that be better? The only other issue I have is formulating that into a question ... For literature EEs, it's best to focus on a particular element of that book and what effect that has on some overarching theme or argument. For example, if I wrote my EE on The Great Gatsby a possible research question would be "How does F. Scott Fitzgerald use symbolism to portray the decline of the 1920's American society in The Great Gatsby?" Since you are using only one book, it might be best to identify two closely-related literary elements and discuss how they portray whatever genre you are trying to tie the work to. Is this good enough? : How are the themes of romanticism and realism explored in Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility"?I would add into your question the literary devices that help develop these themes. Does Austen use symbolism? Does she do it through imagery? Pick one or two of these and I think your question will be okay. Thank you so much! You literally saved my life I think this is going to be my final question for now: How does Jane Austen use symbolism to explore the themes of Romanticism and Realism in "Sense and Sensibility" ?

  6. My topic for my Extended Essay in English is: Romanticism vs. Realism in Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" I need help formulating this in a question! I really don't know how to I'm going to be discussing whether or not Austen was a realist, romanticist, or somewhere in between and come up with my own conclusion. I'm also going to discuss whether Austen was aware of these terms, or whether they are simply terms we've tried to impose on her. As well, if she was responding to specific styles of Realism/romanticism during her time. Do you think my topic is good? and how could I formulate this into a research question. Thank you!
  7. I'm actually an American citizen and from the state of New York! 2000 is going to be really hard for me to get but I already started studying for my SAT, which I plan to take in May.
  8. Thank you all for your advice! I think I can get an 1800 on my SAT ... MAYBE higher but I seriously doubt it! and the only way I can get an 1800 is if I really study, which I am. I'm also going to take two SAT Subject Tests so hopefully I could score high on those as well.
  9. Hi! Im in my junior year (11th grade) of high school, so first year of IB, and I am planning on applying to NYU as my first choice! Do you think I would have a chance of getting in with the following classes and grades (as of right now-- they will improve by next year): - History HL (5) -- maybe, and I'm praying, it will improve to a 6 - English HL (7) -- might go down to a 6 during the year, but I can keep a 7 as an overall grade. - Spanish AB (6) -- very likely to go up to a 7 - Theatre HL (7) - Math SL (6) - Biology SL (7) My major is going to be undecided because I really don't know what I want to major in
  10. Hi everyone, My extended essay is in English A1, so comparing literature in English. I am thinking about comparing an Austen novel (Sense and Sensibility) with a book by Maya Angelou (don't know which one yet) . She wrote quite a few books that I believe were all autobiographical. Most, if not all, of Angelou's full length books are directly autobiographical whereas none of Austen's are specifically autobiographical, though they clearly portray what it was like for women (presumably like her) in her context. Maybe that can be part of what I address. In other words, why did Austen feel compelled to express herself through fictional characters, and Angelou choose to make her work more obviously autobiographical? Do you have any specific books by Maya Angelou that I could use? Any books that you think would be well for this topic and comparing with Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. I'm so lost right now with finding a book, so I would greatly appreciate any help I could get. As well, do you think this is a good topic or could become a potentially good research question? Thank you.
