  1. So I have been thinking on doing my EE on Orwell's literature, more specifically a comparison of the representation and pillars of authoritarian regimes in his work (1984 and Animal Farm). I have not yet made a research question, so Id like to know if, first of all its a good idea to do my EE on this and what RQ should I use.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm busy writing my written task part 2, using the book 1984. I chose to work with question 2, which is: If the text had been written in a different time or place or language or for a different audience, how and why might it differ? I chose to write an essay on how George Orwell's '1984' would be different if it would have been written before the Industrial Revolution. Do any of you have some good ideas for me? I would love to hear them. Thank you all in advance!
  3. Hello, I need some help to help develop my Research Question. I am doing my EE on English A with the themes that integrate between George Orwell's 1984 and Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. I do have a RQ but my supervisor and I both feel that it could be better focused towards my point. Due to both novels being a dystopian future with the monetizing of information of the people. They are both published shortly after World War II. However they both have different views as there is the socialist and communist views in both novels and the experiences of World War II affecting the literature. However this information is something i would rather leave for support to my EE instead of focusing on it. Current RQ; In what ways do the themes of George Orwell's 1984 and Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 overlap. Any advice, criticism or greeting is welcome.

    Hey guys, I am stuck on researching on how Goldstein feels throughout the book for Hate week, The Book, 2 Minute Hate? Please help me with this, I need to use this subject on my WA on Language B English, or if you have ideas how can I change or improve my topic. Thank you
  5. I'm currently writing my Extended Essay and have already met with my adviser about my topic, but I'm not completely confident in my research question. I'm conflicted on whether it's too broad or if there wouldn't be enough to write on it. My research question is "How does George Orwell use the theme of psychological manipulation to further his warning of totalitarian governments in the novel 1984?" I'm in no way asking for anyone to rewrite this question for me or help me excessively, I just need some confirmation if/how I should make the research question better. Thanks in advance!
  6. My EE subject is English Language and literature. My research question is : Comparing the Orwellian tools of ideological and psychological manipulation in 1984 with the Margaret Atwoods religious tool inThe Hadndmaids's Tale to dehumanize humans. I fell like the question is Ill-phrased and im worried if this question is too broad. I'm in desperate need of second opininon . My supervisor is not replying to my Emails and i want to start my EE in summer break so please help me. Any kind of help and suggestion willbe appreciated . Thank you!
  7. Hi IBSurvival! Does anyone else on here enjoy reading dystopian literature? You know, like Yevgeny Zamyatin's We, Ayn Rand's Anthem, or George Orwell's 1984? That's just to name three I've read (the first in class this year, the latter two for my EE that I'm writing). I really enjoy dystopian literature and I was just wondering if anyone else on here does. It really gives insight into what is wrong with the world, and what will happen if that doesn't change.
  8. Hi, First post here so, yay! Anyways, I was wondering what kind of sources should I use for a English EE. I mean the only logical one I can think of is the book itself. If I was doing it in History I get that you'd need some sort of histrical evidence to back up my arguments. However, analyzing literature is a matter of interpretation through analysis, so what kind of things should I cite to back me up aside from actual citactions from the book. Oh and BTW if anyone's interested, my question is: What role do the various female characters play in George Orwell’s 1984 and why does he choose to include them? Thanks!
