"This essay includes very few grammar or sentence structure errors showing that you have a good command of written language. You also did a great job neatly formatting the essay helping make it easier to read. Since your essay does not include an introduction, your reader is presented with a couple of challenges. First, it is hard to understand what the purpose of your paper is. Your should write an introduction that includes general background information and a guiding thesis statement. Second, the lack of a thesis statement also leads to the information presented in the body of the paper not flowing in a logical manner. Once you create a thesis statement your paper will have direction. Last, despite the significant amount of evidence used in your paper there are no citations. It is important that you cite all information that you obtained from other texts to avoid plagiarism issues."
