eNotes contains a great deal of information about British books which would be useful for references in writing your term paper. Two of the most popular are Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies. There is also a wealth of material in eNotes on Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, as well as on his Oliver Twist and David Copperfield. In addition to George Orwell's Animal Farm, eNotes contains considerable reference material on his 1984, a classic dystopian novel. Another famous dystopian British novel is Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. A really wonderful British book is Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. Many people have read it in abridged editions, but it deserves to be read in its original version. There are many good novels about women written by Jane Austen. Her best-known is Pride and Prejudice. Almost all of her novels have been made into motion pictures. eNotes has extensive information on these works. A lot depends upon your personal taste. You should pick a book you think you'll enjoy. You can read a summary of any well-known British book in eNotes and decide whether you'd be interested in reading the book itself. British literature is one of the three great literatures in the world, the others being French and Russian.

I was thinking about doing Dicken's Great Expectatations and Bronte's Wuthering Heights, planning on connecting them through their views on the social class structure. Any opinions?
