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.
