"You chose good examples from the play to highlight Shakespeare’s use of suspense and foreshadowing, but it’s odd that you define foreshadowing in your introduction but not suspense. Likewise, throughout the paper, suspense often seems to be added as an afterthought to your analysis of foreshadowing. If you feel that the two are so closely intertwined in the play that one doesn’t exist without the other, then you should make a statement to this effect in your introduction so that the reader understands you’re treating suspense and foreshadowing as a unit. The sentence that begins “As this quote from” is awkward and should be recast for clarity along with the phrase “befall onto him.” A date such as March 15 is typically written in cardinal form even though it is read as an ordinal number. When an ordinal suffix (e.g., -th) is included, standard practice in academic writing is to not superscript the suffix. There’s also a typo with the use of “whos” instead of “whose.”"
