For the successful writing of an informative essay, as well as any other written work, it is necessary to understand and assimilate the basic principles, without the knowledge and observance of which the work will not be successful. In the school curriculum, so little attention is paid to mastering these principles, that when writing essays, most students have certain difficulties associated with the lack of skills to construct logically related texts. And a considerable number of publications offering ready-made essays, to which this book also applies, often completely wean the student to think about the logic of writing. Let us try to correct this omission at least to some extent, telling the principles and rules of writing the works.
We draw your attention to the fact that the stated principles are suitable not only for work on essays, but also for articles, and even works of art, so that future students will no doubt be useful, not to mention future writers.
When the topic, the basic idea, and the argumentation system of the future work are clear, you need to choose the material on which you will rely. You will need quotes from work, confirming your main idea and each of the arguments.
An epigraph usually produces a good impression — a quote from a prosaic or poetic text (indicating the author and title of the work), which reflects the author’s personal attitude to the topic he is considering. The selection of materials from prose works, especially large ones, is rather labor-intensive. However, you can make your work easier if you take up the selection of quotes while reading the work – the topics of future works are usually known in advance. Just do not forget to specify the author and the work. Do not rely on memory, even if it is super-reliable. When writing quotes, it is important not to make grammatical, spelling, and punctuation mistakes.
Selection of poetic material only seems more simple. Most likely, you still have to face certain difficulties. The volume of the essay, although not rigidly fixed, should not be too large. It is best to choose 3-4 most characteristic poems.
