Please write the beginning (2 or 3 paragraphs) of an Academic Essay about a topic of your choice, then convert it into a General Interest Essay, a Personal Essay, and a Literary Essay. Please make sure that you write about the same topic in each of the 4 essay sub-genres and that your underlying thesis is the same as well. At the same time, please try to bring out the specific character of each essay sub-genre as clearly as you can and make the contrast between the four texts as strong as you can. You may have to modify the content of your essay to do justice to each genre - but please keep the gist of your main argument the same. Use as much stylistic variety as appropriate.
