most commonly asked questions from our visitors.
How do I read Shakespeare online for free?

sonnets links on the top navigation bar of every page.
How can I see the glossary if I'm stuck on an old word?
Click on glossary and then click on the letter link
(A-Z) at the top of the glossary page until you find
the word you're looking for.
How do I use the Study Guides?
Simply click on the play you are studying on the
left menu bar to access a study page for that play.
Choose the link you require to either read a brief description
of the play, read a blow by blow commentary of the play's
action or read essays on characters in the play. Alternately
you may use the top navigation bar to access the play,
poem or sonnet you are studying.
What's the difference between Commentaries and Summaries?
Commentaries are detailed descriptions of a play's
action. Nothing is missed; it's like reading an english
language translation of the play with every quote explained
and translated. Summaries on the other hand, are brief
guides simply detailing what happens when and are ideal
as an introduction to to a play.
