Back in the sixties and seventies, boys wanted to be just like their daddies—lawyers, doctors, professors, scientists, even the next man on the moon1—anything really. And girls at that time, because of the start of the feminist movement2, were starting to dream of becoming something other than a homemaker3. Fast forward fifty years later to this day, everybody wants to be an actor or a rock star or a bestselling author or somebody who at least gets five minutes of fame4. First, writing an essay seems so ordinary. Sure, a 1 Neil Armstrong, as you already know, was the first man to actually set foot on the lunar surface, although his fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin arrived at the moon at the same time. This took place on July 20, and teaches us at least two things: that one small step for man can be a giant leap for mankind; and that coming in close to first means you are still second.

Sure, a 1 Neil Armstrong, as you already know, was the first man to actually set foot on the lunar surface, although his fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin arrived at the moon at the same time. This took place on July 20, and teaches us at least two things: I actually asked my nine year-old cousin, and he wants to be a doctor.

I want to be a bestselling author. Admittedly, there are some essays on our daily broadsheet that are far better-written than the ones we wrote as students, but they usually get drowned out by the lackluster, narrow-minded, and self-indulgent personal essays of the politicians and socialites they are featured next to6.

The last two decades have seen the arrival and subsequent rise of the Internet in the Philippines7 and, along with it, the omnipresence of social media. Although this has increased the voice of the masses to a near-deafening level, the same cannot be said for the quality of the output.

Take blogs, for instance. Anybody with an Internet connection, a laptop, and a basic vocabulary can start one—and indeed many have, resulting in the stereotype that they are merely superficial personal accounts that exhibitionists are compelled to share with the entire universe. This leads many of us to conclude that there is no significance in essays self-published online, and that bloggers do not even deserve to be called writers but, rather, mere stringers of words.

But what that something is, your guess is probably better than mine. Michel de Montaigne was the first writer to refer to his work as such, when he used it to describe his attempts at self-portrayal. This was in , but this early definition is still integral to how the genre is described today.

Therefore, perhaps we can say that an essay is a short; b nonfiction; c tries to make a point; and d does so in an interesting way. Still, none of the above definitions manage to pinpoint what an essay is, how it should look like, and how it should make the reader feel. How then do we identify this form of literary nonfiction when it refuses so stubbornly to be pinned down? There's nothing you cannot do with it; no subject matter is forbidden, no structure is proscribed.

You get to make up your own structure every time, a structure that arises from the materials and best contains them. The material is the world itself, which, so far, keeps on keeping on. Or it already is anything. It is free. Freedom is frightening, though. And so is the complete lack of definitive boundaries. Humans revel in the familiar.

But what lies beyond our limitations is unchartered territory—vast and mysterious. Let us therefore take this dangerous journey together, as we slowly remove ourselves from the center towards the very edge—towards the fringe. We open with a handful of essays that are traditional in form but far from ordinary in approach. I immediately Googled the name online and read one of his short stories on a literary journal.

That day, I discovered a gem of a contemporary writer and realized that my writing was nowhere near his. DFW was most well-known for his novel, Infinite Jest. His trademark writing often makes use of, among other things, footnotes that are almost as expansive as the actual text—and which I try to incorporate here as well.

The vivid imagery that the writer uses transports the reader and allows us to see, hear, touch, taste, and smell as if we were experiencing everything firsthand.

But such is the skill of Wallace that his use of figurative, sometimes exaggerated language, make for an interesting read. You almost forget that the essay is 15, words long or a quarter of a young adult novel. Works Cited: An Alphabetical Odyssey of Mayhem and Misbehavior by Brandon Schrand offers a refreshing concept13 wherein the writer compiles titles of books and gives an autobiographical account based on each one.

New York: Scholastic, It brought back memories of when I, too, tried to enact a story I had read when I was little. However, a surprise awaits the reader at the very end whether you find it pleasant or unwelcome is 13Using acronyms or even the entire alphabet to start lines or entries in a text has also been employed successfully by other writers. Filipino poet Jose F. More recently, American essayist Dinty W. I labelled all of our storybooks with fake Call Nos. It brings to mind what experimental writer Carole Maso15 said about form: The essay basically reads like a list of facts about India until you go further down the list and realize that they are too bizarre to be true.

In fact, the text is a compilation of statements from the West about India, half a century before any one of them would set foot in the foreign land. Though the majority, if not all, of the so-called facts are actually far from factual, people believed them as true before they could know any better.

Indeed, myths and folklore are part of what forms the cultural identity of a people, explaining who we are and where we come from16, and can thus be considered nonfiction in their own right. It is almost bereft of emotion; the story is recalled matter-of- 15Carole Maso is a contemporary American novelist and essayist, known for her experimental, poetic, and fragmentary narratives.

Even her ruminations on love and hate are logical, however laced with cynicism.

In this word lyric essay, the writer drops all sorts of reminders a mother would give her daughter, one after another. She mixes in both the essential and loving reminders with those bordering on nagging, and some concerned accusations as well, providing a well-rounded and usually accurate portrait of a mother- daughter relationship.

This essay is comprised completely of quotes from bumper stickers. But rather than being just a mish-mash of sayings altogether, the author innovatively uses only the bumper sticker quotes to write about the different stages of life, from birth and childhood, to adolescence and with it all the immature misadventures , to relationships and sexuality, to family life, work, and aging, and eventually, death.

The last three essays provide a glimpse as to how the genre is constantly adapting to the times. Both the text itself and the techniques used by the writer—such as the substitution of punctuation marks with spaces, the lack of indentation, and the disregard for proper justification—challenge our concept of what an essay is. Also, throughout the text, there is a line at the right side of the page that is occasionally interrupted by spoken dialogue.

The text itself also seems to be a play on the idea of Free Association20, being both a form of catharsis to the writer, and perhaps also inviting the reader to play therapist to her, since we are privy to her thoughts.

Published in , it is an interactive exam question type21 of essay designed to both evoke narrative and elicit the same from the reader. The text is comprised of several sections that you would expect in any long exam, from True or False questions to Fill-in-the-blanks and, finally, to a conclusive essay portion, in which the questions are already essays themselves.

These list or lyric or exam types of essays, or whatever you might call them, refuse to be shackled to a single form or purpose or genre—but this in- betweenness is also perhaps what gives it its appeal and power. It shocks, not merely for the sake of attention, but simply because it is what it is out of necessity, and the writers offer no apologies for that.

They allow each piece to become what it best wants to be, possibly resulting in forms that are indistinctive but effective nonetheless. A piece of literature is not merely meant to inform or entertain, after all, but hopefully, in one way or another, make us better by inspiring us to think more, feel more, and give more as we strive to understand the text and the context in which they were written.

The typical model of this essay type results in many multi-part essays from readers that both share traits with and differ from one another. Cochrane, Kira. Crews, PhD.
