In my college English course Shakespeare's Measure for Measure is required reading. SparkNotes helped me to gain a little bit of clarity. This play needed to be read and an essay produced in a two week period of time. Without the understanding that SparkNotes equiped me with I fear my grade would have been very low. I must admit that after "learning" the language of Shakespeare I did enjoy this play.
