English C1 EE

Recommended Posts

I'd like to analyse ''Of mice and Men'' for my EE, and this is the RQ I came up with:

What is the literary function of the dialogue between the natural world and human aspirations in John Steinbeck’s ‘‘Of Mice and Men’’?

Is this RQ sufficient or should I edit it?

I would comment, but I'm afraid I honestly don't know what you mean. I haven't read Of Mice and Men though. Unless the "world" talks to characters in the book and the characters talk back, I'm not sure what you're saying.

instead of dialogue, is it okay if I use the word ''parralel''. Because I think that nature and the natural world has a lot to do with Lennie and George's dreams and aspirations. And also how the gorge is seen to be a refuge from the ranch.

Again, I'm not sure if "parallel" is exactly the right word, but I understand what you're trying to say... Maybe you could try rephrasing the question to examine something more along the lines of the influence of the natural world and the relationship between the natural world and human aspirations.

Ah Thank you <3 @22033Lauren

Yeah, your general idea is good. I think "parallel" is a good way to phrase it. "Parallel" lets you talk about similarities, juxtapositions, metaphors, symbolism, allegory, etc. Once you've finished your essay, you can always slightly change the wording and/or ask for the opinions of others on your title.

@NomenclatureThank you for your response ^_^ Just wondering if I'd be smart to compare the 'nature' aspect in ''An imaginary Life'' by David Malouf and ''Of Mice and Men'', instead of just focusing on one novella? 

It's up to you. I haven't read either book. One book or two books; both are good, though each has different approaches and techniques though. Do whatever you think will be easier and that you'll be able to offer better analysis on. And lastly, I know you didn't ask about this, but don't do three or more books.
