Components of a great critical essay
A critical essay should include an argumentative thesis, and evidence to back up a criticism of the given subject matter
Great critical essays do more than convey an interpretation or point of view on a topic, they present a case and support those claims with evidence from multiple sources. Critical essays are not “critical” in the sense that they are refuting established ideas, but rather conducting evaluation and analysis upon the chosen topic.
Frequently, it is assumed that a critical essay proposes a sort of judgement upon an idea, but rather it focuses on meaning and exploring the significance of a topic.
1Have a transparent argument or critique about you subject
Ensure that you reader knows what you’re critiquing, why you’re critiquing, and what kinds of critical approaches you’ll be following
They key to any critical essay is the clarity of the argument being made and consists of 3 parts:
A critical essay seeks to prove its claim through objective and accurate research garnered through quality source material.
2Know the difference between a critique and criticism
Although they are somewhat similar words, critiques and criticisms are conceptually different
A critique is a careful evaluation of a given topic or issue. It involves well-reasoned thought, research and evidence to arrive at a conclusion.
Criticism, on the other hand, is often associated with judging or finding the fault in an idea or topic.
Criticism most often involves describing its subject as ineffective or lacking in some way. A critical essay is the critique of a topic, rather than criticism of it, seeking not to devalue, but to better understand or rationalize the topic.
3Structure your critical essay
A critical essay follows the standard essay structure of an introduction, main body, conclusion, and work cited, but there is more to the makeup of a good critical essay than simply its organization
A critical essay is only as effective as its content. It must begin with a topic of which a concrete claim, or thesis can be made. It helps to choose a topic in which you have a specific interest or an idea with which you particularly agree.
It also helps to choose a topic for which there is a good deal of research or study available to ensure credible sources will not be difficult to find and will be plentiful. This aids you in crafting a stronger, more researched critique.
Understandably, the topic upon which you write is not always left up to you and you do not always have the luxury of choosing an idea you like, or for that matter, even agree with. Herein lies the real challenge of critical writing, particularly in creating a critical essay.
When writing upon a topic with which you disagree or know little about, a good rule is to consider even more source material than aforementioned. In doing so, you can assure that you thoroughly research and evaluate your topic and may even find that your own viewpoint changes somewhat.
4Use empirical evidence to support your critique
Rely on citations, theories, empirical findings, and whatever kinds of evidence you can find to support your critique
Like most good purchased essays, a critical essay and its central claim is only as strong as the evidence it presents. Empirical evidence it the result of observation and experimentation. It creates the foundation of fact and is the most important element to an effective critical essay.
Empirical evidence is generally produced through use of the scientific method.Using the scientific method in critical essays
A claim can be well-stated or reasoned, but without critical evidence to reinforce that claim it can be construed as mere opinion. The use of empirical evidence is paramount in the process of constructing a critical essay.
How to produce a critical essay
A critical essay generally follows a traditional essay format, just make sure you include all the components listed above
While the length may vary based on the requirements of the order, the following organization is key to constructing an effective critical essay. Paragraph organization is comprised of: Introduction—Body Paragraphs (evidence) [As Needed]--Conclusion. The number of body paragraphs is dependent on the specific needs of the order. This framework makes up the foundation of a strong and effectively organized critical essay. The following will break down each component and its significance to the overall essay.
Step 1: Writing your introduction
Tell your readers what you’ll be critiquing and why, and introduce your thesis, or hypothesis on the subject
A strong introduction not only introduces the topic but also makes the claim to be examined by the remainder of the essay. This portion of the essay not only states the purpose, but also created the “hook” which piques the interest of the reader and prompts them to keep reading the remaining essay. Much focus is placed upon the claim or thesis in an introduction, but effective language in order to “hook” the reader is equally important.
Step 2: Writing the main body
This is where the bulk of your writing will take place, so flesh out and explain your critiques here
The main body of the draft contains all of the details and evidence that will be used to support the central claim. It is a good idea in the body paragraphs to vary the types of evidence utilized as well as presenting a counter argument which shows that the opposing viewpoint has also been considered.
- The first body paragraph typically contains the strongest evidence to support the claim of the essay. This evidence is usually from primary sources and scientific or other professional studies. It begins the evidentiary process off with the most indisputable fact.
- Later paragraphs are often used to present evidence that may serve to support the central claim but might have a greater degree of interpretive or opinion-based evidence. While opinionated or interpretive evidence is often rejected in place of indisputable fact, it can still sometimes serve a purpose in the construction of an effective critical essay.
- A good practice with the final body paragraph is to explore a counter argument or evidence that disputes the central claim. While this can serve to sometimes weaken an argument, it frequently functions as the opposite, demonstrating that all points of view have been considered in the critique leading to a stronger and more certain conclusion.
Ensuring that the body paragraphs of an essay are well organized, flow naturally into one another and present a complete picture of the topic in question will ensure that the critical essay will effectively present its claim.
Step 3: Writing an effective conclusion
Don’t introduce any new ideas, but give your readers a quick recap of your critique(s)
Restating the central claim is important as well as summarizing the evidence that has been presented.
In the context of a critical essay, the strength of the evidence should be referenced as to the degree to which the central claim was either proved or disproved.
Critical essays differ from other writing types in that they seek to accomplish more than simply report facts, but to validate and expand upon them as well.
A good conclusion cements a strong critical essay. The conclusion ties the whole essay together and should be stated confidently by the writer.
Step 4: Show your research with a works cited, references, or bibliography page
Depending on the format required for your essay, you’ll need to show how and where you conducted your research
Depending upon which citation style that is used in the essay, specific information from the source material needs to be presented.
- Date of Publication
- Title of Work
- URL from which the source was accessed
Sticking to primary sources will produce the highest quality and most well-researched critical essays.
For critical essays, the source materials that best reinforce the claim made in the thesis are scholarly and peer reviewed sources such as professional and scientific journals, books by specialists in the field and reports or case studies concerned with the given topic.
