Literature Websites


Gradesaver describes itself as offering the highest quality study guides that are written exclusively by Harvard students.

Their ClassicNotes are, they describe, the best book notes available online. These can be found in PDF or in print on Amazon.

GradeSaver was founded in April 1999 by two Harvard students who decided that they could do more than help their friends and classmates. They chose to create GradeSaver and then ClassicNotes, which has over 400 titles for free with millions of users a month. The website has been recognized internationally by newspapers in the UK and Germany.


What Does Gradesaver Offer?

On GradeSaver, students have access to literature essays, lesson plans, Q&A’s, study guides, college application essays, textbook answers, and writing help. A portion of this is available for free, while more requires a premium membership to access it. Some of the most popular literature essays include ones about Henry James and The Turn of the Screw, 1984, Wuthering Heights, and Frankenstein. Some of the other authors featured on their website are Jane Austen, John Miltonand Joseph Conrad.

In their study guides, users can read about the background of a novel or poem, learn about the themes, the sections of the novel, and take quizzes to improve their understanding of the content. There is also a question and answer section at the end of articles with questions asked by real users, updated regularly.
