What is an essay? 
An essay is a broad term that covers everything from (short) written school assignments to (short or long) academic or literary writings. Here, focus is on the literary essay since that is what you are most likely to meet at school.

An essay can be defined as a short focused text about a topic, seen from a personal point of view. The topic can be anything, but often takes its starting point in an observation the writer has made or an experience the writer has had. The writer expresses his/her thoughts, opinions and/or reflections on the topic. Therefore, the essay usually consists of a factual presentation of a topic (the observation or experience) as well as of a more personal argumentative or reflective examination of the topic.
