The "Lyric Essay" is quite simply a title for an odd range of hybrids. If it's not entirely a poem, fiction, non-fiction, or an essay, but straddles those categories, it is most likely a lyric essay. This is just a very rudimentary description of what a lyric essay entails, however. Aesthetically there is usually some sort of rhythm or logic to the language. The diction is often as carefully chosen as with a poem. Its paragraphs are organized like an essay's, with a topic sentences, and its whole is organized like a piece of fiction or non-fiction--leaping around is common if not encouraged between paragraphs and no underlying structure is necessary. Lastly, the lyric essay is different, it should not conform completely to any standards, it is an individual and fiercely so.
