Requiem for the Outline.
Hoy, Pat C., II
Writing On the Edge, v12 n2 p19-27 Spr-Sum 2001
Notes that in a familiar essay, the form is determined by the peculiar way that a person tells a story. Contends that the act of writing needs no preconceived outline, reserving the right for the writing to seek its own shape, order, and texture. Concludes that conceived and composed in this way, the essay bears allegiance to the writer. (PM)
