"You've taken an interesting approach in suggesting that Shakespeare is propping up the idea of monarchy while Milton is promoting democracy. You've developed your ideas well and provided some good supporting information. Remember that you don't have to stick to one paragraph for Shakespeare and one for Milton. Since you cover a wide range of information from each text, consider breaking up those paragraphs to separate your broader statements from your support. Consider having the essay proofread as there are a number of grammatical errors as well as confusing sentences."
