A Note to Publishers of the "Classics" libraries

I don't know why I fall for it every single time, but for some reason I do. I read the introduction and the commentaries at the beginning of the book. And every time they reveal some very key aspect of the plot (if not the climax itself) and I'm left devastated. Yes, yes, you can argue that I should have learned my lesson by now. But, for some reason I can't help but open the front cover of a book and read through to the back cover of the book. Why oh why can't we put the commentaries at the end of the book?

love loved House of Mirth.
