I'm writing an essay and to me my opening sentence could be worded better or is a run on. Please help.

Although it’s difficult to a chose a particular event or person that had the greatest impact on western civilization, the rule of Constantine the Great was a figure that stood out.

  • English -

    I meant choose* not chose by the way.

  • English -

    Although there are many events and people that have had great effects on western civilization, Constantine the Great was a figure who stands out.

    1. Making the introductory clause positive rather than negative works better.

    2. "the rule of Constantine" was not a figure.

  • English -

    Yeh that's why i said Constantine the Great, but what do you mean by your first statement. How would I change the sentence then?

  • English -

    Please reread what I posted. I changed your sentence.

  • English -

    Sorry I'm half asleep, thanks.
