So, I've got a comp class over the summer to alleviate some pressure for next semester because I royally screwed my first two semesters. Now, this would not be a problem, and it isn't, except that I need to write a ten-page paper. I've got two choices, between the possibility of conflict between N. and S. Korea, and a paper I previously wrote on Othello and the presence of Iago as pure evil, or the poorer portion of Othello's conscious. Now, I am open to new topics... I just know that these are the two simplest topics for me to do. They're both interesting, but tell me if you've got a better idea.

Pick!

Post!

Give me other topics!

More specifically, its ties to Finnish culture and mythology.

for instance, this character: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Groke

Is actually based on a Finnish mythological creature that represents the cold and darkness of Finland. Once you get into it, you realise that Moomins has alot more to it than just being a cartoon.
Finnish culture is very interesting, and you can find alot of it in the books and series of the Moomins.

EDIT: Also, it's a very original idea. I don't think anyone has done a report about Finnish culture through the Moomins.

"Moomins" plus ellipses = 10 pages if you use one letter per page.

Can it be about anything?

If it can then why not write about how music has developed in the past like 60 years? Its a topic I used for a class a few years ago. I started with the 50's and examined the musical styles of every decade and how those branched out into new genres and influenced each other, along with brief histories of bands that I felt epitomized the musical direction of each genre. I went all the way from early rock to every kind of metal known to man.

Nobody can have that though because it's copyrighted. And 7 times as long as your project has to be.

And in the early 90's music reached its absolute peak.

Also, according to a Finnish friend of mine, the Moomins are actually supposed to be Trolls of a sort.

The Moomins used to freak the shit out of me, I thought they were evil.
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

Not sure how it is in the UK, but in the US, almost all papers need to be in 12-point font or else they don't count.


Why not just give word counts instead of page counts though? It seems illogical to me because you could just mess with the formatting and whatnot to make it as easy to write as you can

Woman: "It's in the phone book."

Because if it isn't formatted in standard format (whatever that may be for that year...it changes every year -.-), it doesn't count.

Well I got to go with the overwhelming consensus here. Moomins. And I'll even help you in writing your paper.

There. You have all the vowels you'll need.
Of course if you do it on Finnish Moomins you probably won't use them all.
