"You use some good quotes to both state your claims and also acknowledge the other side of the argument. However, there is a lot of repetition of the same ideas and phrases. It is definitely important to continuously refer back to the claims you are making, but you also want to rely more on your analysis instead of just making simple statements. A couple of your claims are also just a rewording of the quotes you use. Quotes are most effective when they enhance your argument instead of simply repeating it. The question "How does looking beyond appearance lead to self-awareness?" is not really answered throughout your essay either. You touch very briefly at the end on how to look beyond appearance, but you could really benefit from further analysis on that, which would then help you answer the question about self-awareness. You do mention briefly that if people look beyond appearance, they can become aware, but how exactly? Try to analyze that concept further to strengthen your thesis."
