In the earlier days, the teachers would give dissertation topics which the students needed to write about. These essays were very boring, and as they did not hold the interest of the writer, the student would not even conduct proper research or even write a proper thesis after doing the homework they needed to. This would happen term after term, and the dissertations that were handed in would be of low quality as they did not involve any research whatsoever. It was done either at the last minute or treated as a kind of freelance topic.

These are some topics that can be considered either for freelance essay topics or even dissertation topics. However, the student needs to be ready that to do a proper study on the play, at least the entire play will need to be read at least for a few times as part of their homework so that the subtleties can be understood and deeper meaning to the play can be perceived. It will also help if they can get the help of someone who is a major in literature to help them with these topics and to help them write a good dissertation.
