Description:The content is written primarily by Ph.D. and Masters students from top universities including Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, and Yale who specialize in "everything from Shakespeare to Victorian literature to African literature..." Shmoop's laid back and often humorous approach to the material is really engaging.

When you click on the above link, you'll land on the literature page where you'll see a menu of literary works by authors such as Jane Austen, Albert Camus, Ernest Hemingway, Jack London, George Orwell, Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Tennessee Williams, and more.

Click on any one and a new page opens with a tab menu that includes:

  • Introduction
  • What it's about and Why Should I Care?
  • Resources

You can also use the search feature to find a book of choice.

Then check out the top menu for more Free Stuff and more Subjects including English and Writing. Access to all of this rich content is free, without obligation.

NOTE: Because this site links to exterior websites that we have not reviewed, PARENTS SHOULD PREVIEW THE CONTENT TO DETERMINE SUITABILITY.

Finally, we'd like to reiterate that one of the best aspects of this site is the way humor is used to engage students. Students will find the captivating banter irresistible. Just browsing the site can ignite interest in literature, so bookmark it to return often.
