This a long sentence taken from the middle of my introduction to an English report. "I have researched a range of different written interpretations - namely the novels War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding; the essay Non-Acting by an older and reformed Leo Tolstoy; and the Bhagavad-Gita, an important Hindu scripture transcribed by Vyāsa – in order to discover whether there exist any particular characteristics commonly viewed to be an essential element of morality." Have I used semi-colons, "and"s, and commas properly? To me the list seems to make sense, but it would be nice to know that it was structured in a technically correct way. Would anyone here list the texts in a different manner? Thanks.
