hello,
I have to write a research paper on a paticular author. I chose Mary Shelly since we just finsihed reading Frankenstein. I need to narrow down my topic to make it more specific. I don't know how to start. I want to somehow relate her life with Frankenstein. By what her inspiration was when she wrote the story. Will there be many points to write a 6-8 research paper.

Another topic I had was the science during that time?

Also another one is, What was the people's opinion when Mary Shelly wrote a work of science fiction? did they accepted it?
plz help me narrow down my topic, and have enough resources to do my research.

thanks everyone

    As I was reading about her life. There is alot about her and her husband's life. How her husband encouraged her to write.

    So what if I do...How her Husband's encouragement imapacted her life and writing....
    is a general topic, should i make it more specific.

  • English -

    or how her husband impacted her literary work

  • English -

    How her husband affected/influenced her in her literary work -- that's good.

    I'd avoid the word "impact" unless you mean he actually hit her!

    And I don't think you mean that, right?
