WORLD LIT TOPIC. HELP

Recommended Posts

hey people, if you've got a minute please give me some advices/views/opinions on my *potential* world lit topic

How is the suppression of women’s intelligence amplified through Firdaus’ passivity?

If you must know, this if for the novel, Woman at Point Zero

On the whole, your topic looks fine, though you should make the your thesis more explicitly literary. As it is currently phrased your topic risks a psychological treatment of the work. You intend, after all, to examine how the *writer /text* achieves this amplification, right? So rethink the phrasing of your topic to reflect this.

A small addition to the above...

To nail your topic in your own mind you want to ask yourself a couple of questions:

1. Will I be creating an argument? ...or merely a list of examples proving the same point?

2. Will I be able to provide sufficiently *varied* points for an argument?

Well, three, actually

3. With the two points above, will this topic give me enough material for the assignment?

"Suppression of women's intelligence" is a bit vague. And, as I pointed out earlier, the way it is phrased leads easily to psychological explanations... You want to avoid this.
