Summary, etc.:
The use of a first-person perspective in essay writing is a powerful tool that invokes intimacy, empathy, and witness. Ethos is more inherent in an ́Í essay because the person sharing the story actually experienced the events. Learn how to write concisely to avoid an ́Í story becoming simply an outlet for your own feelings, instead using your emotions to develop a broader appeal that will interest and benefit others. Professor Cognard-Black also reveals how general tricks of the writing trade (for example, ́show, dońt telĺ) dońt always apply when writing essays.
