    Default Stranger in a Strange Land and The Handmaids Tale

    I need to make a thesis that uses stranger in a strange land and is backed up by the Handmaids tale.
    Like I could talk about how religion causes oppression in stranger in a strange land and the handmaids tale.


    Right now im trying to use this thesis:Robert A. Heinlein and Margaret Atwood use an outsider, with an alternate point of view, to show how the government, the religious institutes and the capitalistic economy, restrict freedom within society.
    But I cant come up with anything the essay is not flowing how its supposed to
    So if anyone could give me an idea on what to compare and talk about in my essay it would be a lot of help. Thanks.

    Stranger in a Strange Land. You need to capitalise and italicise titles.
    We don't do homework here, alexis.

    Also The Handmaid's Tale. It needs apostrophe.

    Welcome anybody2.

    As shown in the forum guidelines, please remember to state that you are not a teacher when responding to queries. See my amendment in red above.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
