What is an analytical essay?
Well, it’s simple.
As the name suggests, the goal of an analytical essay is to analyse something and explain it in depth to increase understanding.
You can write an analytical essay on different subjects --- analyze a book, play, event, poem, issue, or a piece of art.
However, while tackling such essays don’t simply summarize the topic; instead, you are required to critically examine the details and provide evidence to support your arguments.
When writing about a novel analyze the plot, how the author has portrayed the characters, and the influence it has on the readers.
Analytical essay just like any other type of an essay follows the same outline format.
The introductory paragraph introduces the topic and provides relevant background information. It also comprises the hook sentence to grab the reader's attention and lastly the thesis statement --- enough time and effort should be spent on this as your professor will decide whether or not he/she should invest their time reading your essay.
