An Evaluation Essay assesses the object of study and induces the reader to agree with the writer's point of view. Evaluation essay is somewhat similar to the cause and effect essays, except for considering no cause-and-effect relations. Evaluation involves pondering over the text, actions or events and is not limited to books and articles only.

Stalin and the USSR The career of Stalin was rather fast and straight-forward. In 1922 was elected the general secretary of the central committee of the All-Russian communist-Bolshevik party. His rude force and approaches attracted many and Stalin got additional support from the masses. His approach to politics was so forceful that even dying Lenin (the founding father of soviet communism-Leninism) in his last writing wrote about the need to remove rude Stalin from power. The document was rejected and Stalin continue to build his career to the most powerful post in the Soviet Union (Radzinsky, 79).

Explication essays

Explication essay is one of the most common assignments students are given in university or college literature classes. Usually an explication is no longer than 1000 words and it requires a lot of professionalism to write a high-level explication within such a little word count number.
Explication differs from a typical essay in several ways, but one is the most dramatic. In a literary essay a writer is required to support his work interpretation with the materials from the text, but explication requires to focus on the text itself, concluding with some final thesis that merges all writer’s ideas together. Explication is to point out all significant poetic details that play an important role in the text.

Direct translation of the word “explication” from French is “unfolding”, meaning that the writer is to follow through the whole poem line by line and to comment what poet is doing in each part of the work. The purpose of an explication essay is to analyze someone’s literary work and comment it to better understand it.

Usually an explication is prepared in several steps.
First, the literary work must be read from the beginning to the end carefully and slowly. It must be read with a critical eye to be able to notice all details.

Second, the writer must ask himself questions about the work he read, and answer them in writing. The basic questions to be answered for an explication are: who is the speaker of the work? What is the setting of the work? What is the audience? What emotional tone is used (despair, anger, humor, complacence, etc.)? After this the formal elements of the literary work must be noted. If it’s a poem, it is important to answer questions: what type of poem is it? What rhyme scheme is used? What meter is used? etc. A careful reading of the text must notice such elements as metaphors, smiles, multiple meanings, and other literary devices.

The third step would involve the literary work paraphrasing by the writer. Here the writer describes his interpretation of the meaning and how the formal elements of the work described above contribute to the general meaning. Here the main idea of the literary work is began to be drafted: relationship between the formal and poetic elements of the work with the overall meaning.  
The fourth step is to draft an essay. There are many ways a writer may arrange personal thoughts and ideas, so different patterns may be used. The simplest way is to analyze the literary work line by line and come to an overall conclusion. More sophisticated approaches may involve discussing the work within the framework of patterns that were noticed during the analysis, for instance, when the same emotion runs over more than two lines in the poem.

The final step of the essay is revision. Besides checking grammar and spelling, the whole explication should be given some universal thought. The writer must ask himself if he has said what he wanted to say in a clear way that fully expresses the meaning of the literary work. Also, will the reader understand and be satisfied with the writer’s explication? However, the writer must not make a mistake of writing a mere summary of the literary work. Following the guidelines above will make the explication essay effective and useful for a reader.     


A general explication essay is your explanation of a poem.  You do not need to analyze a poem line by line, but you will need to be selective and consider only details that are significant and vital to your own thematic development.  You will need to discuss specific lines and word choices that relate to your main idea presented in the introductory paragraph.

Use these questions to help you plan your essay.

*What does the title contribute to the reader's understanding?

*Who is speaking? Where is the speaker when the poem is happening?

*What is the situation?

*What difficult, special, or unusual words does the poem contain?  How doe the words contribute to the overall meaning of the poem?

*How does the poem develop?  How does the form contribute to the meaning?

* What is the main idea of the poem?

In your introduction, express the main them of the poem.  Present your analysis /thoughts about the main idea fo the poem in a THESIS statement.

In the body of your essay, explain the poem's content first, with a description of the poem's major organizing elements. Then explicate the poem in relation to your central idea.  Discuss special topics or aspects of meaning and techniques that bear upon your central idea.

In the conclusion, you may repeat your major idea in different words to reinforce your thesis.  Also, include as much poetry vocabulary /"lingo" as possible to demonstrate your expertise.

Choose a poem from the text to explicate.  You will NOT need to do additional research for this essay.  Your Works Cited, then, will be a listing of the author and poem you will choose with the textbook bibliography information. 

Your essay should be an analysis  Any essay that simply retells, paraphrases, or summarizes the poem will not receive a passing grade.

You should quote from the poem to support your points. An essay without adequate support will not receive a good grade.

This essay should be at least three paragraphs in length (paragraphs: introductory, support, and conclusion).
