Writing the Books on Literature
SparkNotes makes literature accessible to every reader through book guides. Comprehensive plot summaries and analysis can be found online and in print. The SparkNotes library ranges from obsolete classics to contemporary hits, covering over 300 different titles. This identity serves to function across diverse source material and express SparkNotes’ literary enthusiasm.
SparkNotes’ No Fear series are full-text classics, such as the plays of Shakespeare or the prose of Hawthorne. The left pages show the original text, side-by-side with a contemporary “translation” on the right.
