Sick of lugging around the doorstop that is your current Dickens novel? Wish you could just click on any given Dostoevsky quote and have it explained to you while you’re reading?

Shmoop’s got you covered. You can read dozens of text in their entirety—right on Shmoop. If you come up against a confusing passage, we’ll direct you to our summaries, or you can click on a quote and see what we have to say about it.

Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.

We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Our Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.
