Literary Infographics

Back in the olden days when I was a student some of my peers would avoid assignments by reading Cliff Notes rather than full books. If you’re not familiar, Cliff Notes were commercially produced summaries of full length books that generally covered all relevant details but had zero literary merit. Needless to say, instructors frowned upon the use of these cheats. Personally, I had no use for those publications. The online learning platform Course Hero has produced a series of 21st century versions of the Cliff Note, with hundreds of literary infographics from multiple genres. You can check them out for free at their website, but it’s still better to read the book.

    Could be useful in the case of certain authors. I struggle with Hemingway, for instance, and might just have been tempted…..

    These infographics are indeed quite informative! I’ve used CliffNotes extensively in my high school assignments.
    On a side note, readers looking for information coupled with aesthetic, like above, might be interested in sites like Nautilus, which I’ve recently written a post about if interested!
