The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark…


An outline is a means of organizing the material for your essay in such a way that the direction of your arguments can be charted.  Thus, the outline is a skeleton of the essay; it provides form and structure.  If the outline is sound, the essay will likewise be sound. Once you have organized your material in outline form, you have a plan for the essay itself. You always know where you are in your argument, as well as where you have been and where you are going. In the outline you decidewhat to say; thus, in writing the essay you need to concentrate on how to make your argument clear. The result should be an organized essay.

There are two formats for an outline: the sentence and the point formats. As their names imply, the former is less abbreviated than the latter. Generally, the point outline is preferable since it is less cumbersome and forces you to condense your ideas in a phrase. Remember, however, that too much abbreviation can lead to confusion. If your outline is too sparse, it may exclude necessary material. The outline is for your use. Find a balance that is suitable for you.

Remember the diagram of the essay structure. The body of the essay is a point by point proof of the thesis. Your outline lists your points (and subpoints) in the order in which you choose to deal with them. When you write your essay, you expand your points into paragraphs. Look at the following sample outline for the Macbethessay:
