KDict defines the literary essay as follows:

2. (Lit.) A composition treating of any particular subject;
— usually shorter and less methodical than a formal,
finished treatise; as, an essay on the life and writings
of Homer; an essay on fossils, or on commerce.
[1913 Webster]

The essay, despite reports to the contrary, is not dead.

There was a delightful musing on the income tax time in today’s local rag.
