Today I received feedback on my latest essay for my Shapes of Tragedy module. The subject was pollution and cleansing in the Oresteia by Aeschylus, the Greek writer.
I had been anticipating the feedback and mark on this essay after slipping up on a smaller essay for my other English Literature module this semester, Literary Theory. I was pleasantly surprised with my mark and exceptionally pleased with the feedback and criticism from my tutor.
Currently, I am working on an essay on Queer Theor which is in for the 9th of January. I’ve been working with my Lit Theory tutor to practice and improve my writing so that I can explain my ideas with clarity. So, really the point of this post is: don’t be scared to ask for help. Don’t be scared to email someone about advice. It’s worth it, and what is there to lose if you do?
