  1. Hi! I'm considering looking at The Trial by Kafka and 1984 by Orwell in terms of the nature of authority, the position of the individual in society and the methods the people in authority use to maintain power. Do you think this is a good choice for my EE? I haven't come up with a research question yet but something to do with society vs. the individual? I realize that these books are somewhat overdone in the IB but this is what I'm most interested in doing and I am going to refine my research question into something that hasn't previously been done. Thanks!

    Extended essay on Orwell's literature

    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.
  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.

    EE topic: english

    So I'm a 1st year IB student and I have to pick my EE topic soon. I really enjoy George Orwell's works, so I was thinking of centering my EE on him. Would a topic involving Orwell and pessimism in his works (eg Animal Farm, Nineteen Eighty-Four or Coming Up for Air) work? I've seen people say that writing about Nineteen Eighty-Four is a bad idea as it is overused, but do you think this topic would work? I don't really have any idea for any other English EE, so I was thinking if I can't write this one I might just switch to History, in which I would have to decide on a topic too. Thanks
  5. Hey, guys! I'm just starting my English lang. lit. essay, which will basically be a comparison between how the dystopian style/genre is used in "1984" by George Orwell, and "Brave new world" by Aldous Huxley. Language, characterisation, setting, themes etc. will be compared. Still, I'm not sure whether any of these research questions are concise/focused enough or too narrow? 1) What literary techniques do Huxley and Orwell use to depict their dystopian societies? 2) In what ways do "BNW" and "1984" differ in how they portray a dystopian society? 3) How are literary devices utilised in -II- in order to adhere to the dystopian genre? All help is appreciated!

    Unsure of my topic - HELP

    So I'm writing my EE in English B (I'm danish), and I chose to read 1984 and then analyse an aspect of the book, and after reading it while writing notes, I came up with two topics I could work with: The historical parallels of 1984 (comparing it to the past and the present), or Ingsoc and Newspeak (analysing the concept of the political ideas in the book)My problem here is that I am unsure which one to choose. The first one has a lot of information to write about (thats good!), but I don't know how to start. The latter one is really interesting, but I'm not sure if a research-question can be constructed from it. What do you think?
  7. Hello Guys, I was wondering if you could help me find a topic for 1984 by Orwell, I'm lost and really don't know how to do it. Could you give me examples of topics ?
