Need help with formulating RQ

Recommended Posts


I want to write my EE in English A2 on literature, namely on the book Catch-22. It looks like I will focus on character description.

So please comment on my first draft of the research question. Thanks :]

How are characters introduced and described in Joseph Heller's 'Catch-22'?

Erm here are three sample RQs from the EE guide:

Does Dany Laferrière in Pays sans chapeau share the same point of view

on Haitian politics as Gary Victor in La Piste des sortilèges?

What role does the natural world play in Chumon no ooi ryoriten?

How does Abel Posse construct an imaginary history in his novel El largo

atardecer del caminante?

I'm no expert on this, but I think that you should narrow down a little bit. Perhaps add what the significance is...

Something really simple--What is the significance in the way Joseph Heller introduces and describes characters in Catch-22. This way, you're stating the author is purposely 'introducing and describing' so it adds critical analysis, in my opinion.

I've always wanted to read that book...

I hope that was useful =)
