"Your decision to include different publishers' viewpoints on the main characters from the story was an interesting one and made your analysis more engaging. However, your essay would be stronger if you explained to the reader why it's important that Lawrence gave his characters very distinct traits. Did his characterization of them enhance the story in any way? Although a minor edit, it would be a good idea to format Lawrence's name in a consistent manner as "D. H. Lawrence" with a space between the initials and a period after both the letters D and H. Revision is needed to remove misplaced commas. For example, commas should not always appear before and after a name. Sometimes you use the semicolon correctly, but other times you use the semicolon where a colon would be more appropriate. In addition, the semicolon is a punctuation mark that should be used sparingly, so you should avoid using it in back-to-back sentences whenever possible. The first line of each paragraph should be indented by half an inch to better conform to MLA style and standard academic writing practices."
