How to write an essay

Ten years ago I took a break from writing essays to tell everyone else how to write essays. These “maxims and arrows” (as I pretentiously called them in my younger days - a clumsy nod towards the Nietzsche I was reading at the time) served me well. I don’t use these principles very much today. It turns out industry is more interested in truth than in rhetorical dances. But I suspect they still work well today if you’re studying an arts degree. Here, child. These were my father’s maxims. They are yours now. Use them wisely.
