Can you please check the following sentences, please. It's really urgent.

1) Following what Joyce had already done in England and Proust in France, and what, in some way, Sterne had attempted as early as two centuries before, Virginia Woolf therefore abandoned the traditional technique of novel writing for a new, more modern form.
2) She eliminated traditional plots and direct dialogues, turning to an interior monologue* .
3) External reality lost its long-praised importance, except for the influence it had on the inner life, the life of the mind. She tried to compress these mental processes into minimum time units, using a variety of techniques.
4) That is why, in turn, she set the plot in one ordinary day (Mrs Dalloway), or in two different days, years apart (To the Lighhouse).
5) Moreover, in her need to shift back and forth in time and intermingle past, present and future, like Joyce she used two methods which are analogous to film montage:
-the subject can remain fixed in space and his consciousness can move in time (time-montage)
-time remains fixed, and it is the spatial element that changes (space-montage).

    1) OK

    2) She eliminated traditional plots and direct dialogues, turning to interior monologue.

    3) External reality lost its long-praised importance, except for the influence it had on the inner life, the life of the mind. She tried to compress these mental processes into minimum time units, using a variety of techniques.<~~Here, I'd want to know what these techniques are!

    4) That is why, in turn, she set the plot in one ordinary day (Mrs Dalloway), or in two different days, years apart (To the Lighhouse). Are these titles of stories or books? Remember how to indicate a story title and a book title.

    5) Moreover, in her need to shift back and forth in time and intermingle past, present, and future, like Joyce she used two methods which are analogous to film montage:
    -The subject can remain fixed in space and his consciousness can move in time (time-montage).
    -Time remains fixed, and it is the spatial element that changes (space-montage).

    Compare very carefully to catch all the changes I made.
