When given the assignment to write an extra essay review at school, many people probably have a question: What is an review? And what are the It's different from an ordinary essay? In this article I will try to answer these questions.
The word essay came into the Russian language from French and historically goes back to the Latin word exagium, which is translated as "weighing," French ezzai can literally be translated by experience, request, attempt, outline, essay.

An essay is a prose work of small length and free composition, expressing individual impressions and considerations on a particular subject or issue and not knowingly claiming to be definitive or exhaustive in its treatment of the subject.

The structure of the essay is determined by the requirements imposed on it:
The thoughts of the author of the essay on the problem are stated in the form of brief theses.
a thought must be supported by evidence - so the thesis is followed by arguments.
Arguments are facts, phenomena of social life, events, life situations and life experiences, scientific evidence, references to the opinion of scientists, etc. It is better to give two arguments in favor of each thesis: one argument seems unconvincing, three arguments can "overload" the statement made in a genre oriented on brevity and imagery.

Thus, the essay acquires a ring structure (the number of theses and arguments depends on the topic, the chosen plan, and the logic of thought development):

Thesis, arguments
Thesis, arguments
Thesis, arguments

The following requirements are placed on the structure of the essay:
The essay writer's thoughts on an issue are stated in the form of brief thesis statements.
The thought should be supported by evidence - so the thesis is followed by arguments.
