About eNotes

We have measured out our lives with coffee spoons.

eNotes.com was founded in 1998 by two classmates who loved Shakespeare. We have grown quite a bit since then—adding more authors, works, and services—and we now help millions of students and teachers each month.

We are headquartered in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Seattle, WA, where our in-house publishing team of writers and editors ensure our content is the highest possible quality. Our large selection of study guides and homework help offer comprehensive analysis and insight to learners of all levels.
