Re: PLEASE critique first draft of PS harshly.

As an English major, you should know that beginning a paper with a quotation, especially an anonymous one is unbelievably trite. So trite in fact, I stopped reading after the first sentence.

I honestly did not mind the quote at all. I think in the context of your essay it makes sense, and I think your essay is well written and quite interesting! I almost always agree that you should not start with a quote, but in this case, it didn't stand out to me as a blatant error.

Good luck

I figured that was coming, but I thought I'd give it a try. It's just a first draft. Thanks
