"You provide compelling analysis of the book, and the quoted material effectively illustrates your points. However, some of your quotes run quite long and could be shortened while still working to support your analysis. Keep in mind that in MLA, quotes that run over four lines of text should be formatted as block quotes. Although you handle writing conventions well, there are some errors to be addressed. There are repeated problems with subject-verb agreement and typos. There are also instances where you need the possessive form of a word (e.g., "reader's minds"). For direct quotes, a space should be inserted between a closing quotation mark and the opening parenthesis for a parenthetical citation. When a parenthetical citation appears at the end of a sentence, no period should be used before the closing quotation mark; the period should be placed only after the citation itself."
