There are different options for compiling your essay, but each of them should include such basic elements as an/the introduction, main part and conclusion. Let’s analyze each part separately. The main purpose of the introduction is to acquaint the reader with the main topic and to stimulate interest. First of all, you have to introduce the subject matter and describe it briefly. If you want to heighten reader's interest try using some appropriate quotes or provocative questions according to your topic. Proceed with claiming your main thesis clearly and accurately including some relevant information if necessary to develop reader's comprehension and then describe briefly how you are going to provide evidence of your claim. If you are writing a rhetorical analysis essay, perhaps, you will perform your piece of writing in front of a large audience. In order to make the atmosphere relaxed and your speech more attractive, provide some inconspicuous jokes or interesting statistics and images about the represented subject.
In the basic piece of your outline, you should entirely reveal the main theme. This part usually consists of paragraphs which evolve and confirm your thesis statement. Each paragraph has a separate logical structure and is always associated with your original statement. You should start each paragraph with a topic sentence that will introduce the idea of the section. When writing a critical analysis essay your section should include explanations, details, paraphrasing so as to develop assertion that was made in the first sentence. The best way to provide testimony of your idea is to take advantage of quotations, which may contain some particular details and express an analysis of the merits and faults of a study or event, music, art etc. You should keep in mind, that your primary goal is to persuade a person or audience of people that you have fully discovered and displayed the idea. All beneficial advice can be compiled in a list:
- Consider the best topic sentence for each paragraph which supports your idea.
- Make a small research and study topic all around.
- Make your argument supported by another source.
- Use quotations and direct examples to make your point stronger
- Try to emphasize as many small details as possible in order to make proficient analysis
Your conclusion shortly restates and recaps the primary point you have provided, but in other words, and from a point of view of the achieved results of the analysis. When all's said and done, end your essay with a metaphorical quote or relate the theme to the everyday life in order to retain your reader under the impression. Remember that you should never bring up a new issue in the conclusion.
