             All of these essays were very carefully written essays. The Paradoxes of Creativity, Intoxicated by Illness, and Shooting "Fire!" were three great essays from the book The Best American Essays of the Century. All of the essays were really descriptive with a lot of meaning. The sentence structure in these essays flowed nicely because all of the sentences were not the same length.
