The word essay means an attempt. So an essay must always be the attempt of the writer to express his own thoughts, ideas, and feelings. The students must never forget that his essay must be an expression of his own minds. What the lyric is to poetry that the essay is in prose. In its own way, an essay is as much a work of art as a picture is. Like a picture, it must have unity of design, the proportion of parts and consistency of coloring. If it does not possess the character of artistic unity, it is not a true essay.

The writing of an essay in English is one of the most difficult tasks for Pakistani student to undertake. Our problem is how to translate our thoughts and feelings into correct and living English. Most students complain that they have no material for a topic. Some are shy, while others approach their teacher for guidance. The only guidance that a teacher can give his student is that he should read, search, think and practice writing. Also sometimes students feel that there is nothing to say about a subject and this is attributed to lack of experience and general reading.  Therefore, if one wants to write a good essay, one must acquire the habit of reading. As all knowledge does not come from books, we should observe and learn much from life around us. We can also improve the skill of writing essays by conversing with others.

Hence we should discuss subjects that interest us, with our friends and listen to people’s conversation and should make them talk to us about the things they know.

Writing of Essay

Suppose you are walking along the road and you see a street accident, you see a man walking with his child. The child suddenly let’s go the father’s hand and runs. Suddenly he falls down. Just then a car comes speeding up and stops just near the fallen child. Luckily the wheels have not touched the child and he is quite unhurt. This is a narrow escape from an accident. Now, suppose you wanted to tell somebody else what you saw on the road. You can describe the whole scene or narrate the incident. You can write

  • How you happened to be there,
  • How the child ran and fell down,
  • How the car comes up suddenly,
  • How the driver applied breaks and the child escaped unhurt.

You can give the whole description in about ten to fifteen sentences or so. While writing down what you saw, you may also perhaps add a few remarks of your own. You may remark that accidents of this type have become very common and that so many accidents take place every day in big cities. Some of these accidents prove fatal, that is to say, people die in many of these accidents. However, in some accidents, people escape as in the accident you just saw. These remarks you make will form THE INTRODUCTION to your description or narration of the accident. It will form the first paragraph for you. Then you will give the actual description of the accident in one or two paragraphs.

Then in the last two or three sentences, perhaps, you will like to say what your feelings were when you saw the accident, you will say that it was a wonderful escape that everyone thought the child was lost but God helped the child and he was completely un hurt These last few lines will form your CONCLUSION. Now what you have done is that

  1. You have given the description of what you saw in your own words in simple prose composition,
  2. Added an the introduction to your description
  3. Added a few sentences by way of conclusion. your piece of composition will be called “AN ESSAY”.

Students should have to remember that there is much difference between Planning and a Plan. Planning only relates to mental process. Planning involves thinking and selecting of ideas. But on the other hand, Plan means an outline. First think, draw on your reading and make the plan. It is necessary to note down the points, which help you in writing.

The style and subject matter vary as life itself is composed of elements which need to be tackled with separately. When we do not know the exact meaning of a word, we look up for the same in the dictionary. It is really an interesting exercise to compare and contrast the meaning and the definition available in various dictionaries. The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines essay as a literary composition on any subject, usually in prose whereas in the Chambers Twentieth Century Dictionary essay has been defined as a trial; an experiment; a written composition less elaborate than a treatise. Etymologically, essay means to weigh, to balance.

When we define a thing, we tend to put a limit, it will, however, not be out of place if a few definitions are cited here. The oft-quoted definition is that of Dr. Johnson who defined essay as a loose sally of mind; an irregular, indigested piece, not a regular and orderly composition. The definition has been criticized since its very inception-rightly or otherwise. Benson did not attach much importance to the subject matter but to the charm of personality According to him, The essential point about an essay is not the subject but the charm of personality. Bacon, the most renowned essayist said, Reading maketh a full man; writing an exact man; and conference a ready, man. None can become an exact man until he is conscious of what he writes. The essay is the product of our reading, observation, thinking, and practice.

The language of these essays is very simple and easy to understand. There are different types of essays topics for the nursery, kg classes, primary, middle, secondary, high, inter and bachelor and school-level examinations. For the students of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th classes, we have short essays and for 6th, 7th, 8th-grade students we have comprehensive essays.
