Essays generally fall into one of the two categories: ‘define and explain’ and ‘compare and contrast’. The content and structure of the first type is quite self-evident and this job rarely requires more than scrutinizing the recommended peer-reviewed literature and providing an adequate summary. On the contrary, how to write a winning ‘compare and contrast’ essay remains an open question for many students, and that’s where they might even need professional essay writing help.
It could probably make the essay writing routine a little easier to approach the ‘compare and contrast’ kind of essays as a combination of two or more ‘define and explain’ pieces of writing.
The moment of truth here is building a meaningful, logical and balanced pick of opinions on the subject, which is usually not a problem after a thorough study of the reference literature with focus on the controversy related to your topic. Every opinion should in fact be briefly reviewed in a ‘define and explain’ format, and then the author has to decide between the alternative stands, describing the arguments that brought him or her to particular choice. Writing in a factual, substantial manner (with referencing and citations in every ‘define and explain’ section and not only with regard to the particular stance favoured by the author) is a clue to an appealing, well-structured and well-balanced work.
