Types of Essays
Learning the different types of essays allows a writer to choose the best way to make a point. Sometimes it may be better to explain facts with an expository essay than to compare and contrast two things. Another option, the persuasive essay, argues for a particular side, while a narrative essay describes one event or happening. These various types of essays become a writer’s tools for conveying information in the most appropriate way possible.
