Essay Voyage is the third volume in the writing series of the Michael Clay Thompson Language Arts Program. Ideally, it should be used in conjunction with Grammar Voyage, Caesar’s English II, and A World of Poetry.
Essay Voyage explicates the elements of the correct, formal essay—the essay expected for essay exams, research papers, critical responses, and other formal analyses of academic subjects. With the use of extensive examples and thorough explanations, students will see that formal writing involves the correct use of words, sentences, paragraphs, punctuation, and other elements such as organized structure and unity. Each chapter includes interactive exercises, challenging questions, examples of good essays, and a discussion of the correct use of words taken from Caesar’s English II.
