English help with research qu.!

Recommended Posts

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! :)

Which literary techniques are you thinking of to explore?

Characterisation, themes used, symbolism, register, how well Freytag's pyramid structure is followed and how much the elements of the book adhere to the description of a dystopia etc.
