one purpose of the summary is to ?

  • english -

    I would say that summaries save time. They allow the reader to get a gist of what the paper is about without reading the whole thing. They usually outline key themes and characters. Summaries are usually designed to help the reader quickly understand the purpose of the paper/novel/essay.
