Writing my English thesis on 'Survivor' HELP!!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hello, all. Right now, I am in the midst of re-reading 'Survivor' for the purpose of writing my English thesis paper on it. However, I am not sure how I could talk about any one facet of the book for 17 pages and have not found many sources of analysis of 'Survivor' to consult. I am posting here to ask for everyone's help with links to articles (or, at least, where to find them and their titles and authors' names) as well as your own input.

Obviously, a large part of 'Survivor' deals with religion and Tender's recognition of its banality ('work without end," etc.) so that may be a focus of mine. Also, I finally read the Palahniuk interview in Philly Edge where he's quoted saying that 'Survivor' is a commentary on the education system in America. Though I'm not as attracted to that focus as much as I am to discussing religion, I'm leaving myself open to pursue that angle as well.

Any help you can offer would be great. Thanks!
