"You are working through some very complex themes, and I like the way you look to the novels and then connect the narrative elements to broader themes, such as female roles in society. I also like that you are working to compare and contrast several different detective-novel writers.
One of the main issues with these essays is the use of quotes from the novels. The use of ellipses is quite odd, and sometimes it seems that the quote has been shortened so much that it no longer communicates anything at all. Please double-check the original sources for the quotes you've used, and make sure all the quotes are complete and relevant. There are other issues with spelling (in particular, misspelling Agatha Christie's name!) and grammar, but they are less distracting than the problem with the quotations. Correcting all of this will add great strength to the main arguments of the essays."
