After much head-scratching and pondering, after many putting-on-thinking-cap sessions and not-thinking, I (with substantial help from Esmo) have come up with an idea on the Term Paper for Literature And The Other Arts.
I shall focus on the brainwashing in A Clockwork Orange, and draw parallels to brainwashing in other works like 1984, Hirak Rajar Deshe, and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Will discuss the whole concept of brainwashing (the famous Pavlov experiment), and then end by discussing the ethics and the morality of brainwashing. (Question: How am I supposed to fit all this in within 3000 words??)
Now comes the most difficult part- WORK!
