Question:

What is the value in collegiate essay writing?

Answer:

Whether a student is crafting creative or analytical writing, the practiced skill of this task creates a sense of deeper communication and precise message delivery. Our minds can be cluttered with tasks that scatter words in many directions. Having an essay assignment can calm the clutter down. Developing the essay upon certain topics, trains the mind to develop precision with a direct message and exact verbiage delivery. These are critical skills in the professional world, and most certainly in a successful academic experience.

Question:

What are the benefits in studying classical literature?

Answer:

Despite critical thinking and analytical abilities, studying the classics opens other worlds, cultures, and expressions which no longer exist, but did graduate our writing processes into the current norms. Gaining appreciation and understanding of the Old English epic poem Beowulf, written by an anonymous author, is thought to be difficult, but it is a mind opening experience. As well, studying Shakespeare and his use of double entendre truly demonstrates a masterful wordsmith from ages ago. Moving into American authors such as Walt Whitman divulges an outlook and appreciation of yet another level of verbiage and national expression. Literature study not only delivers essay assignments, but it opens the mind to levels of expression and culture over time.

Question:

When is plain and direct English better to use compared to elaborate English using literary devices and tools?

Answer:

Plain, direct English use, without jargon and elaboration, is effective in email, cover letter, and instructive writing. Elaborate language use, which builds depth, imagery, and setting is most effective in creative writing, narrative, comparative, and many other types of collegiate level essay and research writing. Both skills are imperative skills in successful writing and communication.
