Any essayists out there? Surely some of you love writing essays Rolling Eyes

I'm attempting to write an essay on a book I did not read and do not have any notes on whistle

Quote :
In Apuleiusí novel The Golden Ass the author offers a trick of narrative by turning the main character, Lucius, into an ass.

Now I just need the rest of the essay and I'm done YAY!

Neither of those sites offer much information regarding The Golden Ass.

There is good news though!

My professor insists that on a 3-4 page paper you should NOT attempt to analyze the entire book and instead answer one of the essay prompts with relation to a small section of the book. He claims it doesn't matter if your essay is completely wrong if it is write in the context of the section you choose. Basically, if you write an essay explaining the 2008 Tigers are the best team in baseball history and discuss in length about how they scored 6 runs in the first inning of the Twins game on Sunday you'd get an A despite the fact they lost the game.

I'm going to write about his transformation into an ass and my thesis is about how the world is cruel and good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. He turns into an ass in chapter 3 which is 10 pages long Big Smile

LOL. This essay writes itself! I'll bet I could've written a good essay if I didn't wait until the last minute. I'm already more than halfway done and I've barely put any effort in. Think how good it'd have been if I'd either:

  1. given myself more time
  2. read the book
  3. both a and b

LOL!

Want to write an essay for practice?

Here's a topic that I just made up off the top of my head:

Thomas Jefferson's purchase of the Louisiana Territory was unconstitutional but necessary to ensure the survival of the United States as a whole. Assess the validity of this statement.

ESSAY CONTEST:

Best essay gets some Tigers games on DVD.

Also, unlike what SoulRat suggested, this is not an essay for me - I have not taken American History since 10th grade and will never have to take it again.

Here's the prompt:
Thomas Jefferson's purchase of the Louisiana Territory was unconstitutional but necessary to ensure the survival of the United States as a whole. Assess the validity of this statement.


RULES:

  1. You are to write an essay, do not give an outline or anything like that - it will not be accepted.
  2. DO NOT post your essay here - e-mail it to me as a word document so others can't see it and so that it can be formatted properly.
  3. Your essay must be original and you must acknowledge your sources.
  4. There is no minimum or maximum length requirement. Answer the prompt.
  5. By submitting your essay, you lose all copyrights to it and parts of it may be posted here. The winning essay will be posted here in its entirety.

I might write one if I feel like it and have nothing better to do. However, like any other essay I've written, it will be last minute.

It's hard to write a last minute essay when no deadline has been given.
