Write an essay: structure and tips

In this article you will learn how to write a good essay. In addition we describe you the correct structure and give you tips, so that the writing works well.

A good and detailed preparation enormously facilitates the subsequent writing of an essay. First, you should read through the task and find out what kind of essay it is (characterization, synopsis, interpretation ..).

 Afterwards you should consider, which information you need and read the given text several times thoroughly. Pay attention also to linguistic and stylistic means. Sometimes it also helps to mark the important places with a highlighter or to write out in a nutshell.

The construction of an essay
After getting an overview, think about what information belongs to which part. Each essay consists of an introduction, a main part and a trailer.

In the introduction, the type of essay and important data (author, year of publication) are mentioned and a short summary of the main text is written. This should not be too long, as the introduction only serves to arouse the interest of the reader and to motivate him to read on.

In the main part of everything is introduced, which appears to be important in content for each type of essay. These may be, for example, characterizations of actors / figures, interpretations of content or interpretations of important text passages. In addition, stylistic means should be listed and already analyzed.

In the final part is summarized again briefly what you have worked out in the main part. Here is also enough space for your own opinion. Nevertheless, the final part should not be too extensive.

Post processing:
After creating your essay, you should read this multiple times, with a focus on different characteristics, and thus correct spelling mistakes, incorrect wording and content errors. In addition, you should pay attention to a varied language and avoid redundancy. The sentence beginnings should not all be the same and the sentences should be kept relatively short.

Different types of essays
Content Information:
Contents summarize the key features of a text. Here you can orientate yourself to W-questions:

What are the main features of the text?
Who is mentioned?
Where does the action take place?
When does she play?
How do the individual protagonists behave?
Which events are related?

In interpretations, one tries to find out the meaning and meaning of a text. Not only is the text examined, but the rhetorical devices are emphasized and interpreted. At the same time one should always take into account the year of publication of the text and the historical and political environment of the author.
