To Fill Your Mind with Plethora of Diamond Ideas for Composition Expertise?

There are many types of essays divided into many categories and kinds. So one can not limit the types of essay into numeric form, but the important point to be noted is no matter how you classify the types of essay the fundamental theme remains constant. We may be writing a “5-Pararaph Essay”, it could also be descriptive and illustrative at the same time, but what is important for students is the comprehension of an essay theme. You will no longer be confused about determining the exact theme of your essay once you understand your school or college assignment. You can easily relate the following information with your assignment to determine what you are supposed to do in composition.

  8. Comparison & Contrast
Narrative Essay

  1. A narrative essay tells a story…
  2. It can be either fictional or real-life.

  2. You can classify either things or ideas.
  3. You decide how you will classify your topic, but always go from general to specific.
Definition Essay

The precondition for existence of a higher humanity is not the state, but the nation possessing the necessary ability.
