27 CliffsNotes Agamemnon, The Choephori, The Eumenides [Secure eReader]
by Robert J. Milch
  One of the most successful playwrights of ancient Greece, Aeschylus wrote nearly 90 plays, but today only 7 survive. Credited with introducing a second actor onstage, his plays retell the battles, victories, and social ramifications of life in the golden days of Athens. These plays are 2,500 years old and still performed, for they speak directly to the human psyche. Milch has a lot of ground to cover, versus those Cliffs Notes which are devoted to a single work, but the strength of this volu... more info>>

32 CliffsNotes All's Well That Ends Well & The Merry Wives of Windsor [Secure eReader]
by Denis M. Calandra
  Here is one of Shakespeare's problematic plays and his most farcical. The arc of love's victory in All's Well That Ends Well doesn't compel an audience's compassion, yet it is still a skillfully written play. The Merry Wives of Windsor has been criticized for having been written in 14 days, yet it brims with wit and features a new tale of Falstaff, one of literature's greatest characters
