Hemingway Fitzgerald Plath

Whoaaaaa! Listen to the Voices of These Classic Writers!

These classic writers are known for their words, but not necessarily for speaking them. When you read so much of a single writer, his or her identity becomes the words on the page. In some sense, who they are as a person is indistinguishable from the stories they write. Sylvia Plath, for example, sounds a little more wry and upbeat than you might have imagined. Give these recordings a listen because you’ll never read these authors’ books the same way again.
