For Essay 3, I’m thinking of writing about the presence and importance CorpSeCorpse in Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood and how it parallels the major corporations and their ties to the government within our own society. In Atwood’s dystopian future, the corporations and government have merged into one entity, something that seems not too farfetched to happen in our own society as corporations continue to grown larger and more powerful, as well as further exert their will on the government. The presence of CorpSeCorpse is prevalent throughout The Year of the Flood, so finding literary evidence would be quite easy. As for contemporary research, I would primarily be looking into the mergers of companies into mega-corporations and the ways in which they are able to influence our government, most notably through lobbying. I would also even try to find specific examples of companies influencing legislation and draw a parallel to the CorpSeCorps in the novel. While this is still my initial plan, once I begin writing it may be way too broad of a topic and I may be better off trying to hone in on a specific aspect to achieve a more focused paper.
