A narrative essay allows, in more ways than any other essay does, you to express personal thoughts and deep revelations. It also allows an author to share memories and other experiences, whether they are humorous, informative or teach a moral lesson. Most narrative essays take the form of a story and are most often told from the point of view of the author. But more than simply tell a story, a narrative essay also tries to prove a point, even through it could be something simple. The story serves as evidence for the point.
