The style of the essay

The essay is relatively a modern genre. It is the product of practicality and modern common sense. As a consequence, its language is direct, without losing its elegance; its form requires simplicity but with extreme sense of care and rigor. Its content needs to be precise and reject any form of superficial details.

The essay writer will express what need to be said, and will omit what is not needed. He/she will meticulously plan and express everything with the minimum use of words. He/she will need to guaranty the text is not vague, filled with repetition, inconsistent and adorned with unnecessary rhetoric. With this in mind, he/she will need to thoroughly plan, research, execute and revise his/her work.
