Essay Introduction

How to Begin an Essay Properly?

Common wisdom runs it’s better not to start at all, than to start poorly. Essay introduction is equally important in its rights as compared to the other parts of an essay. Your opening paragraph must win over readers’ endeavors to decide whether to read your work; it must set the tone for everything else in the paper announcing not only the subject but also the sort of the future audience. Readers must be literally wooed into reading a paper by more imaginative techniques than the blueprint beginning that simply gives a paper plan. But a few audiences may expect your opening paragraphs to outline everything you intend to do in your paper. Introductory paragraphs that summarize the paper to follow are especially popular among science writers. Such an outline of the scientific experiment is called an abstract in the scientific circles and is widely used in professional journals publications. It is up to you to decide what beginning is more appropriate in each particular case.

Technical Subtleties

A good essay introduction stirs the reader’s interest by forecasting what is to come. Some means of such forecasting are:

  • to lead up to an explicit statement of your  thesis;
  • to define a conflict, problem or question you aim to resolve;
  • to tell a story that illustrates the main point you will go on to make;
  • to move from a generalization to a specific case;
  • to indicate the method of your paper;
  • to challenge a widespread assumption or stereotype;
  • to accommodate readers who may not agree with you, explain the position you aim to oppose.

Sample Essay Introduction

You may get acquainted with one sample of how to arrive at an essay introduction and then think of your own one. Here are the questions by answering which you can formulate an ample idea for an introductory paragraph.

    Dear Patricia,
    As I understood quite clearly you would need some sample about a bibliography type of essay. Talking about thyself is sometimes render us vulnerable and exposed as well. Thus introducing yourself properly should be done in specific ways. Patricia, if you do not mind, you can always contact us and we can assign someone to write about you and yourself!
