How to Write a Literary Essay

Structure

Well lets get started. An essay consists usually of five paragraphs. An introduction, 3 body statements and a conclusion. The introduction states what the body will be talking about, the subjects and the basic knowledge of the essay, also called the thesis. The body explains the opinion of the writer. Each paragraph of the body talks about a specific topic and backs up the writers opinion with at least 3 facts. The conclusion sums up the essay and is almost like a repeat of the introduction.
