  Essay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An essay is, by definition, a work of non-fiction, and is often expository.
In recent times, essays have become one of the chief tools by which colleges and universities judge the mastery and comprehension of material, and they are sometimes used as a part of the criteria by which the student body is selected as well.
In the visual arts, an essay is a preliminary drawing or sketch upon which a final painting or sculpture is based, made as a test of the work's composition (this meaning of the term, like several of those following, comes from the word essay's meaning of "attempt" or "trial").

 SAT The Essay
The essay portion of the writing section was created with an understanding that an essay written in a short amount of time will not be polished but represents the initial phase of the writing process: the first draft.
SAT Writing essays are scored by experienced high school teachers and college faculty members who primarily teach English, composition, or language arts courses, or who teach a course in another subject that requires a substantial amount of writing.
Each essay is followed by an essay scorer's description of why the essay received a particular score.

 Idle Words
About two years ago, the Lisp programmer and dot-com millionaire Paul Graham wrote an essay entitled Hackers and Painters, in which he argues that his approach to computer programming is better described by analogies to the visual arts than by the phrase "computer science".
When this essay came out, I was working as a computer programmer, and since I had also spent a few years as a full-time oil painter, everybody who read the article and knew me sent along the hyperlink.
These essays and this writing style are tempting to people outside the subculture at hand because of their engaging personal tone and idiosyncratic, insider's view.

 English Works!: Essays
An essay can be written from any perspective, but essays are most commonly written in the first person (I), or third person (subjects that can be substituted with the he, she, it, or they pronouns).
The compare/contrast essay discusses the similarities and differences between two things, people, concepts, places, etc. The essay could be an unbiased discussion, or an attempt to convince the reader of the benefits of one thing, person, or concept.
The essay could be in the form of step-by-step instructions, or in story form, with the instructions/explanations subtly given along the way.

 The Return Of/to the Essay   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Admittedly, the essay form itself encourages some of the blurring of distinctions that often accompanies discussion of the genre, and it is true that some articles veer toward the essay, some essays toward the article.
The essay is a genre that flirts with all the other genres (Bensmaïa 96); it avoids marriage or even commitment to any one style, manner of presentation, or subject matter.
For that reinstatement to occur, I maintain, the essay cannot exist in ignorance or avoidance of theory and its demands; nor can the essay isolate itself from social, political, and cultural investments and so from those concerns and expressions that touch “ordinary” people in their everyday lives.

 Help with structuring an essay
It is the controlling idea for your entire essay; everything in the essay should relate back to it.
Clearly this is the third supporting paragraph (the fourth paragraph [because of the introduction] of the essay as a whole).
This sentence restates the main argument of the entire essay, once again reminding the reader of the basic point you are trying to prove.

The titles you included break up the natural flow of the essay, and make it difficult for the reader to follow your argument from beginning to end.
Because they are not integral to the theme (you can describe an experiment metaphorically, without the direct references), removing them does not change your basic ideas, and allows the reader to experience a coherent essay, rather than the sum of parts, which drastically improves the streaming quality of your writing.
Throughout the essay, and particularly in the last paragraph, your writing is a bit verbose.

 How to write an essay
Since the standard that it asks for is high, it applies, certainly, to strategies for writing assessed essays in the first year and in the second year of the English course, and indeed to the third year dissertation.
In other words, the essay must be well structured (ie organised) and presented in a way that the reader finds easy to follow and clear: it must look tidy and not present any obstacles to the reader.
This keeps the essay clean and coherent, is unlikely to lacerate the examiner, and takes up no extra room, so the essays can be stacked without them falling all over the place.

While an essay on Sagan would in and of itself be entertaining, for the man was truly fascinating, a portion of his writings were used to support a point within this subject.
Love the essay, I would have boiled it down to "truth is truth, no matter how hard you question it, so feel free to use the brain God gave you and question away", but of course, that's not nearly so entertaining.

 Tips on Writing a Philosophy Paper   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The key to having your essay follow a logical structure is to make an outline before sitting down to write.
But there are two obvious points that you should be aware of: (1) make sure you explicate a view or argument, clearly and charitably, before criticizing it and (2) explain key terms, concepts, and examples before employing them.
I cannot over emphasize how important it is to make the structure of your essay perspicuous to your reader; your reader shouldn't have to work to figure it out.

I prefer the thrust of your essay, Burkean in nature, that all that is necessary for evil to triumpoh is for good men to do nothing.
Your essay is excellent, it is astonishing how few people understand the historical record from the perspective of the excercise of power.
The essays here have probably been the biggest single push over the edge for me, just due to the fact that they scream truth and idealism, two unbelivably powerful ideas.

 Rebecca Blood :: Weblogs: A History And Perspective
All of these services are free, and all of them are designed to enable individuals to publish their own weblogs quickly and easily.
More skillful editors manage to convey all of these things in the sentence or two with which they introduce the link (making them, as Halcyon pointed out to me, pioneers in the art and craft of microcontent).
Indeed, the format of the typical weblog, providing only a very short space in which to write an entry, encourages pithiness on the part of the writer; longer commentary is often given its own space as a separate essay.
