How to write an essay description


An essay-description in school practice has several varieties: a description of a painting, a descriptive essay about a person . Description of appearance (portrait), a description of a person’s character (characteristic), a description of the situation (interior), a description of the area ...


Each description is intended to recreate in the imagination of the reader a certain image. At the same time, the subject creating the descriptive text has its own point of view on the image and can be free in assessments and methods of presenting the material.


To describe is to indicate, to reveal some important signs, characteristic features, features by which we can recognize or present the subject of the description.


Particular attention in the description is paid to bright and interesting details, features, but at the same time, it is necessary to strive to ensure that these details do not look fragmented, but form a complete picture where everything is interconnected.


An essay-description, as a rule, has a three-part composition: it will contain an introduction, the main part, and a conclusion.


Description Writing Work Plan


1. In the introduction, designate the object of description: who is this or what is it, why will it be discussed. If it is a single item, name its main function or role in the environment of its existence. If the object is a phenomenon or situation, then in the introduction you can write what they are associated with or what is interesting in the first place.


2. Think about what attracts attention to the object, which makes it recognizable. This may be his qualitative characteristics or actions that occur in him or with him.


3. In accordance with the identification of this characteristic, use the evaluative adjectives, adverbs, figurative expressions, verbs of timeless meaning that characterize the state of the object in different periods of time in the main part of the essay to describe the object. Also, use the above adjectives and verbs in comparative constructions and complex sentences.


4. First, describe the most significant signs and characteristics of the object so that it becomes recognizable, and then proceed to the details and details that complement the image, use original definitions and comparisons. Do not give banal characteristics, try to show how attentive and subtle observer you are. To describe the movement of thought, use verbs with a neutral meaning (you can see, you need to understand, you begin to notice, etc.)


5. Concluding the description, describe the object with a brief capacious phrase - indicate what result the attributes you mentioned create and what it matters.
