As to my previous post, I thought I could use the infinitive with to if the action was perceived from the beginning to the end (I was seen to steal the watch/ Active: He saw me steal the watch).
I'm finding it difficult to check these other sentences. Please, help me!
How can I rewrite sentence number 2?


1)Hamlet has lots of features of a revenge tragedy.
2) For example, lots of death during the play, lots of soliloquies and asides between the avenger and the audience, the appearance of a ghost, the violent crime committed against the hero family that can’t be punished, the hero that becomes more and more isolated during the play and that isolation can turn to madness.

  • English -

    1. OK

    2. For example, in this play, there are many deaths; several soliloquies and asides between the avenger and the audience; the appearance of a ghost; the violent crime committed against the hero's family that can’t be punished; a hero who becomes more and more isolated during the play, isolation that may have become madness.

    The second sentence is too long, no matter how it's rephrased.
    #1 - the original is not a complete sentence
    #2 - it's a long list or series
    #3 - it would be better written as 3 or 4 separate sentences.
