First, the writing is very vague and does not go in depth on analysis. I believe I was clear on the marking rubric on a 6 point literary analysis scale. Rather than listing different symbols in the play, It's better to have several significant examples (preferably 1 per paragraph) and make sure you use quotes(evidence) to back it up. For example, the writer could go in depth on how the motif of light and darkness is evident throughout the play and how it ultimately led to the tragic end of Oedipus. Second, I found many grammar mistakes in the essay and not a clear structure of (intro, 3 bodies, conclusion). For example the writer said "She is imprisoned to a tomb symbolizes her fate that her loyalties and feeling lie with the dead, her brothers and her father, and not with the living (tomb my parents appointed me)." There's a misplaced modifier as well as inconsistency in wording and tense. If the writer claims to be able to write confidently at a post-secondary level, I don't think this type of writing is very acceptable.
