Classic Literature Now Available in Manga Format

Cliffs Notes, the company that publishes the study guides that students have relied on for generations, sometimes to the dismay of their teachers, has published a new line of books in the Manga format.

Manga, a Japanese form of comic book, has recently become a very popular form of literature in the U.S. Manga are similar to graphic novels, but the artwork is rendered in the traditional style popular in Japan.

This line of books contains classic titles including works by Shakespeare, Hawthorne and Twain. The books contain original text of these works, and remain true to the setting. These books represent a good entry point into some of the more difficult works of classic literature that otherwise might be intimidating for students.
