The Evolution of the French Revolution
This preview is partially blurred. Sign up to view the complete essay.
"You provide a good summary of the French Revolution and the period of French history stretching from the reign of King Louis XVI to Napoleon Bonaparte’s seizure of the government. However, you fail to connect your content to the quote concerning the definite phases of a revolution. Your essay would be stronger if you explained how different phases in this period line up with moderate actions, radical actions, and the emergence of a strong man who restores order. In terms of MLA style, no comma should appear between an author’s last name and the page number in a parenthetical citation. End punctuation (typically a period) should be placed after a parenthetical citation instead of before a closing quotation mark. A check should be done to ensure that quoted material has an opening quotation mark, a closing quotation mark, and a citation. Consider combining some of your short body paragraphs in order to improve the flow of your writing. For example, your body paragraphs that introduce and define the three estates could be combined into one paragraph."
