    English EE topic -

    Hey thanks! I finally went with: What does William Golding’s portrayal of femininity in Lord of the Flies reveal about his views on the human unconscious? Our school requires us to do a question for planning purposes. I plan to investigate feminine symbols and characterization as related to traditional feminine and masculine gender roles. Then, I'll tie the whole discussion of femininity to Golding’s use of Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis (superego, ego, and id) as the foundation of the characters’ behavior. Through this, Golding portrays how the loss of the boys’ femininity eventually culminates in the boys’ descent into the id and the destruction of the island and their humanity. If anyone cares to read a short draft of the ideas I want to explore in my EE, it's attached. Suggestions are totally welcome or you can use it as inspiration or something for your own papers.

    English EE topic -

    Hey guys, So I'm coming up with an EE research question, and I've chosen to do an English one on Lord of the Flies. This is my main idea: William Golding’s Lord of the Flies explores the disintegration of a society composed solely of boys. Although Golding excludes females from directly participating in this society, the influence of the feminine is still powerful. The boys’ oppression of the femininity that is subtly present on the island is interrelated with their descent into the Id, the part of the mind in which instinct, often violent and sexual, are supreme, according to Sigmund Freud. The natural aggressive drive of boys leads them to dominate and oppress females, causing them to descend into the Id and even more aggressiveness. It is a devastating cycle that culminates in the boys’ complete surrender to the Id and the destruction of their society. How do I crystallize this into a question? Is it even appropriate for an English EE or does it not fit the requirements? If it doesn't work, I've also been thinking about Gone with the Wind or Tender is the Night. What would you guys suggest?
