New Look, Same Expert Content

Go ahead, judge us by our covers.

eNotes’ study guides are getting a fresh new look, thanks to incredible artist and illustrator Yumi Sakugawa. Sakugawa took 200 of our most popular titles and interpreted each in a fresh and interesting way. The end results are as enlightening as they are beautiful; not only is each image a stand-alone work of art, but an insight into the themes and concepts that make these classics what they are.

We hope you enjoy them as much as us! Browse the images attached to our most popular titles here, or scroll down for a sampling.

eNotes’ First 1Million Points Member Is…

At eNotes, all of our hand-picked, real-life educators are rock stars. Anyone who reads the answers they write to students’ Homework Help questions can see that. But sometimes, we need to take a moment to recognize someone who consistently knocks it out of the park. And today, after becoming the first eNotes member to surpass 1 million points, that person is our educator pohnpei397.

pohnpeiIn his time writing for eNotes, pohnpei has written 34,466 answers! He’s also gained 240 fans, earned 111 badges, and received the most bonuses of any educator. I think we can honestly say eNotes wouldn’t be what it is today without this educator. Just take a look at his answers here to see why.

And check out the brand new 1 million points badge created for the impressive goal pohnpei just reached. Hopefully many more will join pohnpei’s ranks soon.

Congratulations pohnpei!

New to eNotes: Annotated eTexts!

For a long time at eNotes, we’ve displayed eTexts on the site–entire works that anyone can access for free. But recently we’ve worked to make them even better. Welcome to our all new Annotated eTexts!

What’s an Annotated eText?

Have you ever underlined words or made notes in the margins of your books while reading them? These notes help to re-familiarize you with a passage of text when you flip back through it, or draw out evidence that points to a novel’s main themes. Well, now those notes are made for you, and by the very same teachers who expertly answer your questions in eNotes Homework Help.

With real teachers and professors helping you with your homework, how can you go wrong?

How do I find them?

All of eNotes’ eTexts can be accessed by clicking the eText header link via any page of the site:
