"The way you've organized your work reflects your understanding of the basic components of an essay. Since you've got this down, you shouldn't include a heading for the conclusion. In addition, you do a good job in your analysis of capturing the complicated relationship between George and Lennie. However, a careful edit is needed to address your formatting and writing convention errors. Observing academic writing practices such as indenting the first line of all your paragraphs by half an inch and inserting a space in between sentences would make your essay much easier to read. Also, remember that the beginning of a sentence should always be capitalized. Although words such as "mentally" should not be capitalized, all proper nouns such as "Curley" should be. Moreover, you have a tendency to use "an" when you mean "and" and to use periods where a comma would be more appropriate."

Be sure to capitalize proper nouns (e.g. Egypt) and titles (e.g. Macbeth) in the essay title portion of your citation.
