An analytical essay refers to one type of essay written to analyze or carefully examine an idea or material and then based on this creating a thesis statement that shows the interpretation of the author that is later developed through evidence. Because of this, analytical essays do not only describe, reports or examines a certain material, but aims at interpreting the material and then proving the interpretation of the author is valid based on the analysis.
