What is a Composition?
A composition is a short piece of writing that discusses any topic on any aspect of life.
Types of Compositions:
There are four types of compositions.
1. The Narrative Composition:
This is a composition that tells a story. Since a story recalls an experience that already happened, most parts of the composition are written in the past tense.
The story may be factual or imaginary.
’How I spent my last holiday’, ’My friend’s birthday party’, and ’A visit to the hospital’, can be written, using the narrative method.
2. The Descriptive Composition:
This is a composition that gives details of a person, an object, a scene, or a place. For example, compositions with topics like, ‘My Best Friend’, ’An Aeroplane’, and ’My Best Teacher’, are good topics for a descriptive composition.
