What is the thesis in an essay?
The thesis of an essay can, typically, be found in the introduction paragraph. The thesis is a sentence or group of sentences that describes the main points which the author will be addressing in his or her essay. In a traditional five paragraph essay, the thesis will likely be the last sentence in the introduction paragraph and will have three distinct subjects, separated by commas. The author will commit at least one paragraph to each subject before concluding his or her essay.
