An essay is something that the author writes himself. According to Benson, since the essay as a genre in Montaigne's hands, the essay has been a pleasant mix of the personal and the subjective and has in fact been the most personal of all genres. The personal touch breathes life and charm into the essay through the essayist's personality. The charm is obvious because the essay is something that the author writes himself where he puts his heart in a very confidential way. An essay can deal with a variety of subjects, but it should above all show an interest in life. It should reflect the author's pleasant personality and also change readers' views. Thus, Benson, Montaigne, writes the essay's father in literature, while writing his essays is about the & # 39; man Montaigne & # 39 ;. Thus, the essay is a reverence for the essayist - it is a loose sequence of thoughts, irregular in nature that currently resides and allows the author to live within and correspond to himself. Montaigne used such a technique wonderfully as he wrote his essays, presented a certain mood and infused charm by being intimate and personal.
An essay is something the essayist does himself. For the essay we can come back to Cicero or Plato. Cicero covered abstract subjects with a romantic background. Plato discussed speculative and ethical problems in life and sought to find a philosophical interest. The English temperament lacks Montague's charm. They are too damned, secret, carefully guarded for their integrity. But Lord Brougham proved that one can maintain integrity while showing oneself.
Sir Thomas Brown's Religio Medici or Urn Burial contained essays of elaborate rhetorical style. Addison in The Spectator was about sensitive humor. Charles Lamb was about the romantic and homely. De Quincy wrote impassioned autobiography while Pater used the essay for exquisite artistic sensation. In all these writings, the usual burden is the personal element, the essay reflects the author's personality.
An essayist is not a poet. To some extent, an essayist is about humor. But humor is foreign to poetry which is more of a sacred and solemn mood. The poet is emotional, reverent, exciting, in search of the sublime and the exalted. He wants to transcend the everyday little arcs, the discordant, insignificant parts of life. The similarity between the essayist and the poet is that an essayist can also make an effort to ignite emotions. But an essayist uses the most common materials in life and transforms simple experiences with a sago's delicacy and romantic glow. Behind all forms of art, whether poetry or prose, lies the principle of wonder, of arrested attention. It need not only be the feeling of beauty, but also the sense of fitness, strangeness, completeness, effective effort. The astonishing thing that a wilder feel to see a civilized city is not the feeling of beauty but the sense of power, mystical resources, incredible products, incomprehensible things. He also sees the grotesque, absurd, entertaining and jocose. The essayist deals with these basic emotions. He filters out the most important questions from these instinctive emotions and records them in impressive language.
So an essayist is a spectator in life. As cataloged in Browning's poem "How It Strikes A Contemporary", the essayist's material looks at the shoemaker at the trade, the man who slices lemon, the coffee bread showers, the books on boats, the bold posters on the wall, a man to beat his horse or curse a woman and so on further. The essayist chooses his setting, perhaps a street, landscape or picture gallery. But when he chooses, he has to get into the heart of it.
The essayist must have greatness in mind. He cannot just indulge in his business whether he is a politician or a thief for the sole purpose of earning a profit. He cannot be condemned in his favor, ie he should not hate his opponents and favor his friends. If he condemns, despises, rejects, he loses sympathy. He must have an all-encompassing mind to enjoy everything he thinks is worth recording and not be crowded. Nearly cloaked persons such as a banker, social reformer, forensic technician, fanatic, crank or puritan cannot be an essayist. The essayist must be broadened but not moral. He must be tolerant, he must discern quality, he must be preoccupied with the general picture of life in relation to the environment and people, not goals and objectives.
The essence of the essayist lies in translating a sense of good humor, graciousness, reasonable nature and in trying to make a nice friendship with the reader. You do not read the essay for information or definition, but to find an acceptable solution to a lot of tangled problems that arise in our daily lives and in our relationships with people. The essayist would address a problem in daily life and deepen it to find out the causes of our pussy actions, reasons for our attraction or disgust with people and try to propose a theory for it. When reading an essay, a reader should be forced to admit that he had thought in the same vein but had never discovered the connection. The essayist must realize that most people's beliefs are not the result of reason, but a mass of mixed associations, traditions, half-perceived phrases, loyalties, keys, etc.
The essayist must take into account human weakness, not human strength. But while accepting human weakness, he must try to introduce flashes of idealism into them. He should keep in mind that, despite weakness, the human mind can idealism, passionate visions, irresponsible humor that can shoot from boring cloudy senses. The essayist's task is to make the reader realize his self-worth, that every human mind is capable of grasping something large and distant, which is not always clear in our minds, however. Human nature is indecisive, it vacillates. The confirmed purpose of the essayist is to make the reader see that every person has a role to play in life, they have an interest in life, that life is a game full of outlets and vibrant channels and life is not just for millionaires or politician.
The essayist therefore finally learns that life is not just about success, but in its fullness. Success can blur our vision of life and make a person full of self-weight. What is important is how much a person can give than take.
The similarity between an essayist and a poet is that both perceive the greatness of life. But the essayist works with more humble material. The essayist is not a novelist because he is not about good-looking but homely material. The essayist must discover the sublimity of life. Life is not always exciting, not always expected for something to happen. There are monotonous spaces. An essay's task is to produce something rich and strange from the monotonous gaps.
Thus, an essay as a genre cannot be strictly classified either. It is like an organ prelude that can be moderated, modulated and colored. There is some criticism of life as well. It is a learning process that learns not to condemn the negative but perceives the fullness of life and encompasses all experience. An essayist is an interpreter of life. He is within a short compass a combination of historian, philosopher, poet, novelist. He observes and analyzes life, colors it with his imagination, enjoys the charm and quality of simple things and strives to make others live a better life.
