The original CliffsNotes study guides offer a look into critical elements and ideas within classic works of literature.

Other features that help you figure out this important work include
- Life and background of the author
- Introduction to and synopsis of the play
- Analyses of all the characters and a character map
- Summaries of each of the five acts
- A review section that tests your knowledge and suggests essay topics
