As part of your assignment to be confronted with more dystopian works, or references to dystopia and the link with their author’s contemporary times, you will present a work around dystopia.

You will review what you have read, listened to, watched... ; explaining (spoiling just a little, for teasing purposes...), saying why you chose that particular work, what you thought of it, and if you would recommend it to your classmates. A link with the worries of the author’s times is welcome, if it is possible.

Here are a few references you can pick from for inspiration :

- in the dark
- the handmaid’s tale (in French)
