The Republic is not an easy read or, as in my case, an easy listening experience. Having the SparkNotes as a reference made the work understandable and enjoyable. The analysis of some murky concepts was quite helpful. One minor discrepancy that I found confusing in the SparkNotes concerns the allegory of the cave, in which the wall with the statues is said to be "behind the fire." Plato makes it clear in The Republic that the wall is in front of the fire, "between the fire and the prisoners."

Excellent summaries. Ocassionally a few points may not be entirely accurate, but for anyone who is looking for a good summary of the text to review this is the one to go to.
I used this to study for a major exam on this book after having read the entire Republic. It was very helpful review.
