History (Essay on the French Revolution)

posted by .

I am writing an essay on the French Revolution and I am in dire need of an interesting topic.

What i'm looking for is something that wouldn't be obvious, not one of the main aspects.

Anyone know what I mean?

  • History (Essay on the French Revolution) -

    How about researching some aspect of Dicken's novel about the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities? For instance, what part did characters like Madame Defarge play in the revolution?

    This may be more commonplace, but the actual storming of the Bastille would make an interesting research topic.

  • History (Essay on the French Revolution) -

    Hmm I was thinking something to do with the Bastille but I can't actually say, "how did the bastille effect the French Revolution" can I? I guess it would have to be more specific than the actual building.

    And i'm not sure that a book would work with history?

  • History (Essay on the French Revolution) -

    Since Dickens' novel is about the French Revolution, you could use it as a "jumping off point" for your essay. You could research the part that ordinary people, like Madame Defarge, played in the Revolution.

    The Bastille was a symbol of the revolution and France's national independence day, July 14, is called Bastille Day. Why did it become a symbol, when the actual event was almost a non-event?
