Answer:

Proofreading is the act of reading through your essay to find mistakes in grammar and mechanics. With proofreading, you are looking at individual words and sentences. Editing is the process of reviewing the organization, format, or content of an essay. During the editing process it's important to keep the thesis in mind and look at the essay as a whole document proving the thesis.

Answer:

Literary criticism is a way of looking at a given text through a specific view point to give insight into the text and perhaps pass a personal judgment that is also research-based on it's literary importance. For example, one might use the point of view or lens of feminism to examine the female role or portrayal of women within a given text. Literary criticism is important as it allows a reader to actively engage with the text as well as find meaning in a text beyond a literal interpretation.
