EE on Literature - damsel in distress

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Even though I have about 2 years to write my Extended Essay, I'm already thinking about it (because what holidays are for if not to give us more time to think about school). I consider writing about the use of the "damsel in distress" trope in literature. Now, I need books that really match... I thought about "Jane Eyre" - my research question would be something like "Does "Jane Eyre" follow or break the "damsel in distress" trope?". But I'm afraid it isn't an imaginative topic for a EE on "Jane Eyre"; it's only paraphrazed a bit. What do you think? Do you know any appropriate novel? I'm looking for books that use damsel in distress archetype as well as the ones that critize/modify it.
