[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with A+ AUDIO: THE SUN ALSO RISES.]--These multimedia productions are a fine introduction to these works for a high school or developmental undergraduate audience. Each consists of a spoken overview of the work in question and a PDF file with a study guide. They are well written, with interesting and pertinent biographical details included along with the analysis of the works. MACBETH also includes the script of the play. The Hemingway overview is read with gusto by Frank Dwyer, an actor, playwright, and teacher of drama. His voice is resonant, and he speaks with confidence and authority. Roger Rees, a British actor and director, performs the Shakespeare overview with all the polish and panache of his experience. He is spirited and easy to comprehend.
