English A EE: Religious themes/symbolism in CS Lewis' works

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. First time poster here so sorry if I get something wrong!


I've thought a lot about what I want to do for my extended essay and finally got it narrowed down to "something about religious themes and/or symbolism in CS Lewis' works". Obviously that's way too vague. My two questions are;


1. Would it be better to write just about the Chronicles of Narnia? On the one hand, books like The Screwtape Letters are too obviously about religion, but on the other hand, I don't want to make it too narrow and not have enough to write about, or seem too focused on his more popular work.


2. How can I make "something about religious themes and/or symbolism" more specific? I'm hopefully not sounding like I'm asking anyone to write my RQ for me - what I mean is, I don't even know where to start really with narrowing it down. I feel like it would be really easy to accidentally choose a question that would lend itself to just listing things rather than analysing - that's one of the things I'm most worried about.


Thanks in advance for your help!
