1. What is an essay?










An organised collection

  • of YOUR IDEAS

  • about literary texts

  • nicely written

  • and professionally presented .








    In other words, the essay must be well structured (ie organised) and presented
    in a way that the reader finds easy to follow and clear: it must look tidy
    and not present any obstacles to the reader. It must have a clear readable
    interesting style. But, above all, it must consist of your ideas about literary
    texts. This is the centre of it: this, and this only, gets the marks. Not
    quotes from critics, not generalisations at second hand about literary history,
    not filling and padding; your thoughts, that you have had while in the act
    of reading specific bits of literary texts, which can be adduced in the
    form of quotations to back up your arguments.
