"You have done a great job writing a well-organized essay that is supported by key evidence from the texts. Because of your thesis statement it is clear what the goal of your essay is. The body of your paper is then written in a logical manner that aligns with the thesis statement. I would suggest that you elaborate upon the introduction because an introduction should consist of more than just a thesis statement. You can use the introduction as an opportunity to introduce readers to the plots or main ideas of the texts. You should also clearly identify your conclusion by making sure that the conclusion starts with an indent and that the conclusion summarizes all of the main points made in the body of the paper. There are a couple of errors in the use of MLA style conventions. Two of them are that your heading should be left-aligned and that you paper should include a header. Last, there are also a number of grammar errors scattered throughout the essay. Most of these errors are based on improper word order."
