"You provide high-quality analysis of the book, and you do a good job of making connections between the fictional tale and real-life concerns. However, keep in mind that common practice is to introduce people such as Atwood, Blake, and Lacan by full name in a text to aid reader comprehension. After that, using the person's last name only is fine. A thorough edit is recommended to address various writing convention errors such as subject-verb agreement issues and problems with verb tense. There are also a few typos such as the use of "on" instead of "one." The term "lower class" should be hyphenated when it is working as a compound modifier preceding a noun (e.g., lower-class people). You follow this practice just fine with terms such as "upper class" and "middle class." Scare quotes are not needed for the term "real life" because you're not using it in a novel way, and your work would look more polished if you consistently used double quotation marks instead of switching between them and single quotes."
