PROFESSOR ESHLEMAN'S GUIDE TO GOOD ESSAYS


Good writing is good writing, but different teachers care more about different things, so that writing for a new reader is always a bit of a guessing game. To try to take some of the guesswork out of writing for me, here is a short guide to what I'm looking for in your papers. This is intended to complement, not replace, the Classics Dept. pages on study skills. Those pages are a treasure trove of sound advice on essay-writing, including how to decode essay questions, how to plan an essay from start to finish, and how to avoid some common grammatical errors that drive us crazy. What you'll find on this page is some more specific advice about writing for me and this class.
