I've got to find a subject for a song cycle, it needs to be a political event or a piece of literature or something like that...

any ideas?

    I've thought about the following:

    Prozac Nation
    Spanish Civil War
    Frankenstein
    maybe the first boudica book???

    As in the Boudica novels? If you were going to do something about Roman Britain why not look at something like Farewell Britannia by Simon Young or The Heirs of King Verica by Martin Henig, which mix history with imagined anecdote.

    Otherwise, what about tracing the civil rights movement from Rosa Parks to MLK, Jr. to Obama or something like that?

    i don't want to do the civil rights movement, i know this will sound silly, but i don't really feel its my place to.

    I was think suffergette movement though...

    If you want to make it a dark one how about Guantanamo Bay?

    Anger, Fear, Torture, Paranoia and Hope now its closing
