"You have a strong thesis statement, but when you say "in this passage" in the introduction, it's unclear which passage you're referring to. More background information on the passage you intend to analyze should be added to the introduction before you use this phrase in your thesis statement. Meanwhile, even though your thesis is solid, your body paragraphs don't cleanly match up to the different parts of your thesis. The topic sentence of your second body paragraph should be reworked to make it obvious that you're doing a character analysis. Since your body paragraphs present your main points as setting, characters, and conflict, consider reorganizing the items in your thesis statement to reflect this order. There are a number of writing convention errors that should be addressed with a thorough edit of the work. Some glaring mistakes include the following typos: "rin" instead of "ring," "though" instead of "tough," and "trail" instead of "trial." A period should be included after, not before, a parenthetical citation when you include one at the end of a statement."
