An 'essay' according to Wikipedia is “generally, a piece of writing that gives the author's own argument - but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of a paper, an article, a pamphlet, and a short story.” In this section you will find some such short writings.
Essays have traditionally been sub-classified as formal and informal. Formal essays are characterised by serious purpose, dignity, logical organisation, whereas the informal essay is characterised by the personal element, humour, graceful style, rambling structure, unconventionality or novelty of theme. The readers will decide for themselves which are formal and which informal. Some have been published, some have been offered for publication but rejected. Any comments will be welcome.
