The Definitive (and evergrowing) Essay Hall of Fame
es·say | \\ ˈe-ˌsā | from French essai \”trial, attempt\”
I have a pseudoscientific but probably accurate theory that the best essay writers are also fiction writers. I guess their voice becomes an amalgamous mix of all the identities they inhabit or a new character all on its own. Anyways, their voice acts as cartographer, showing an ebb and flow, hinting at a distance and sometimes a destination.
But all this can apply to essay writers that don’t write fiction too and this list of essays has representation from both and all camps.
