Types of Essay

Hello dear readers. How has life been treating you? I hope everything is fine though. So, like I promised you earlier, today, I am going to introduce you to a few types of essay and their definition. 

For your information, there is a number of types of essay i this world. Some of them you may never heard of but they do exist. However, right now, I am only going to introduce you to a few common types of essay. Take note ;

Common essay types include the following:
    Persuasive/argumentative essay. 
        Makes a claim or takes a position and backs it up with statistics, expert opinions, and other evidence. You may review an opposing review and explain why it is wrong and you are right.
    Comparison essay. 
    This essay demonstrates similarities and differences between two topics.
    Descriptive essay. 
    This essay explains the “what, why, how, when, and where’s” of a topic. For example, a descriptive essay about a tree would explain what it’s made of, why it grows, when it grows, and so on.
    Evaluation essay. 
    This essay describes a thing or event and explains its importance, value, and/or relevance. Did you like this thing? Why? Did you not like it? State why.
    Narrative essay. 
    This type of essay tells a story in a sequence of events. There should be some point, lesson, or idea gleaned from this narrative to make the essay meaningful.
    So, those are the most common essays everyone SHOULD know. So, have you found out what makes the previous essay the compare-contrast  or comparison essay?
    Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking.
