Types of Essays

Ever wondered why essay writing is such a big deal?

What’s an essay after all? A piece of writing, on a given topic, with a beginning, middle, and end, right?


Essays are all about you. An essay helps you develop critical thinking ability and writing prowess. It shows how articulate you can be when it comes to putting your thoughts into words. Essay writing teaches you how to take a stand on issues, by shaping your perspective.

In short, essays help you express better.

While there is great deal of information available on how to write an essay, this bit of information I found on this site is very useful. Following is an illustration that very well sums up different approaches to be taken while writing different types of essays.
