Essay

...An essay has been defined in a variety of ways. One definition is a "prose composition with a focused subject of discussion" or a "long, systematic discourse".[1] It is difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley, a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject.[2] He notes that "the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything", and adds that "by tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece". Furthermore, Huxley argues that "essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference". These three poles (or worlds in which the essay may exist) are: The personal and the autobiographical: The essayists that feel most comfortable in this pole "write fragments of reflective autobiography and look at the world through the keyhole of anecdote and description". The objective, the factual, and the concrete-particular: The essayists that write from this pole "do not speak directly of themselves, but turn their attention outward to some literary or scientific or political theme. Their art consists on setting forth, passing judgement upon, and drawing general conclusions from the relevant data". The abstract-universal: In this pole "we find those essayists who do their work in the world of high abstractions", who are never personal and who seldom mention the particular facts of experience. Huxley adds that "the most richly satisfying......

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary film making styles and which focuses more on the evolution of a theme or an idea.

Aegis Malaysia in a Filipino's Pov

...happiest countries. In relation to this, when we connect to a vast variety of people through many places, it leads to a positive form of identity. In other words, whether we are in a professional environment or not, our identity is on the bright side. Although these might seemingly sound like benefits, they are actually our weaknesses; we are so focused on giving out pakikisama to the others, that we are obviously taken advantage because of it. To some, the Philippines might pose like an actual threat, and this gives them the reason in having the idea of taking us down in the closest possible way. Take nepotism, the unfair practice by a powerful person of giving jobs and other favors to relatives (Merriam-Webster), and the subject of this essay as great examples. I wouldn’t want to consider this selection as something close to a rant, but I sure do have the right to express my opinions, no matter how harsh they would sound like. Regarding the said video, it did seem like an act of misbehavior to me and I don’t want this selection to be compared with it. As much as possible, I want my writing to be civilized; unlike the said advertisement, which was definitely degrading. Aegis Malaysia definitely took Nazism to a higher level; talk about having the guts to say pointless propositions after demoting an actual progressive country. Every single thing about the video just makes my blood boil. From the sheer fact that it degraded the Philippines, not only the country’s......

Essay on English 200

...Essay on English 200 Course Description and Objectives The purpose of this course is to fine-tune your academic writing process. We will work with They Say, I Say: The Moves that Matter in Academic Writing and other readings. I am most concerned with the use of language. In what ways can language be a powerful tool? How can it be a hindrance? How can language be used purposefully? Too often we forget the weight of the words we use and how we use them. In this class I want us to pay close attention to what we say and how we say things. We will also pay close attention to what we read and hear from others. Part of being a college student will involve partaking in discussions in class and through our essays and research. As such, we must be able to listen and read not only for understanding but also for application. We need to first understand what is being said and then figure out how to either respond or apply what we’ve heard. Note: During the course of the semester we might discuss controversial topics in class. While I expect some (most or all) of us will feel strongly about certain issues, we need to treat each other respect even if we disagree. Be careful with the words you choose and your delivery. We don’t have to agree but we do have to treat each other with respect. Objectives * Students will be familiar with writing for different audiences. Part of the UHWO GLOs (General Learning Outcomes) requires students to effectively communicate information for an......

Dove - Pov

...people: it doesn’t merely talk about what it is selling or try to convince consumers of its functional/emotional superiority; it gives a wealth of content. Achieving a point of view is the result of a truly compelling content strategy:  involving multiple people;  integrating experiences and researches;  creating discussion channels that engage consumers and media for example blogs and forums The fact that a brand is saying “I believe in..” does not mean that it has a point of view; it has to be collectively experienced, validated and accepted. It has to generate a mass appeal for its ideology, just a blank propaganda piece will not suffice. The case study shows the evolution of Dove as a brand with a strong point of view: POV: every woman is beautiful Brand essence: Real beauty Brand personality: gentle, caring, sincere Emotional benefits: feeling good with your skin and beautiful Functional benefits: moisturizing effects and dermatologically mild Attributes and features: special formula containing cream Target consumer: every woman who wants to discover her unique beauty Source: own elaboration based on information in the case Because Dove had to become a Masterbrand for all Unilever’s personal care products and categories, it should start communicating a strong global message, not merely connected with Dove functional superiority. After market researches and psychologists consultancy, the company developed a series of very successful......
