An essay is nothing more than a literary genre that consists of interpreting in a freeway different subjects, without the need to support what is said with any documentation. The writing is free and depends on the style of each person, however, also has some guidelines that we must take into consideration.
Parts of the Essay:
Introduction This is the first part of the essay and consists of a sentence or paragraph that should prompt the reader to stay reading. If the text is long, more than one paragraph can be written. The introduction is usually short, but everything depends on the size of our writing (some will need a remarkable extension, others will not). Its function is to introduce the reader to the topic we will be dealing with and, if necessary, to bring it up to date on what has been said about the topic so far. In it the hypothesis is presented. The hypothesis is the idea that we seek to realize, clarify or sustain throughout our essay and around it will develop the body of the text. It is the seed from which the essay is born. It is the first thing to master to know how to do an essay.
In this phase of the essay you can start with a question, some reflection or statistics that present the theme that the author intends to develop. It should also be noted the reasons why it is important to know more about it. Without being extended, it would be well if one were exposed at once the point of view that has, so the reader will know the position that will be throughout the text.
Discussion in this part, the ideas that were exposed in the introduction are presented. It is recommended to divide the ideas by paragraphs to facilitate reading and to be able to organize better. It is also advisable to begin the paragraphs with a connecting word that indicates that there is coherence between the previous idea and the one that proceeds.
To enrich this process, it is possible to make use of the description, narration or quotations of other authors (the latter in quotation marks)
Conclusion This is the last part of the essay and comprises a check of the idea that was exposed in the introduction. Let’s say it’s an idea a little deeper than the introduction because we’re supposed to have thought through the whole process. It can be finished with an opinion of the writer.
This is all it takes to write an essay. We recommend that before you start to organize your ideas apart, so that you do not lose and you are very precise in your point of view, without ramifications that can confuse the reader.
