First step for how to perform an essay.
The first thing that we must take into account for how to perform an essay is that it is not an essay or other type of writing that requires a rigid structure. The essay is much freer and allows the author to shape his writings without sticking to rigid structures. As in many cases it is to expose ideas or intimate thoughts of the writer can be somewhat scattered and their parts intermingled in a similar way to what happens when the thought proceeds.
However, we can try to give it a basic form, always knowing that the form is subordinate to the content and never the other way around.
Although according to the author who is consulted on how to perform a trial may have different theories but there are three basic parts in which almost all agree even though they may receive different names.
Introduction: In it the author tries to capture the attention of the reader by exposing the subject on which he will speak. Depending on the type of essay we are talking about, it may be a situation of the topic within a current context; it can be a definition of the topic on which one is going to speak; It could also be a position taken on a debate that may generate controversy, to develop it starting from that initial position. It can also be based on a hypothesis.
Exhibition: Once the reader has been put in antecedents of which topic is going to be treated and how it is going to be treated, the arguments are exposed. If we try to define a concept then we will expand on what is something specific for us. If we are defending a position we will argue about our reasons for taking a certain position and we will try to dismantle the contrary arguments. If it is a scientific essay, we will present our sources and explain them.
Conclusion: Here we try to summarize the idea with which we want the reader to stay. It may be our opinion on the subject or an invitation for the reader to draw their own reflections.
Accommodate your style to the type of essay
We must take into account when deciding how to conduct an essay to whom it is addressed. It is not the same writing that we simply try to reflect an opinion and that we are going to publish in a personal blog that an academic essay to deliver as part of a subject.
In the first we can express ourselves in a natural way, using a direct and colloquial language, just as we would talk with a friend. Even if we feel inspired we can make a poetic essay in which we give free rein to our most literary side, taking more care how I say something than what I really say.
In the second case the text must be written in a formal way, taking care of the language but making sure it is direct and clear. And preferably a text with introduction, exposition and conclusion.
Remember that an essay is subjective
He must not forget that he is not writing an essay and that an essay differs from this one among other things by his subjectivity. An essay is a written person, where the author is not limited to exposing aseptically a topic, must be involved emotionally, at the level of opinion but especially when applying a personal style to the text. That’s why when you think about how to perform an essay you must take into account your personal stance on the subject. In a way it is an intimate writing where the author is perfectly reflected and the reader can recognize his “essence” in each paragraph.
