Penguin is to release a series of audio study guides to accompany key English literature A-level texts.
The new study guides include Studying Dracula, Studying The Great Gatsby, Studying Wuthering Heights, and Studying Tess of the D’Urbervilles. They contain unabridged audio narration of the novels and supplementary material written by A-Level teachers. The material features in-depth analysis of characters, themes, structure and form, in addition to chapter summaries and useful quotations.
The guides have been developed with the support of education publishing professionals to give students "a strong foundation from which they can build their understanding, engaging with other critical commentary and draw connections to other literary texts".
Penguin said the audio guides would present "a comprehensive way to study the A-level syllabus anywhere and everywher—in the car, at the gym, on the way to school, or at home!"
Readers include Roy McMillan, Kristin Atherton and Adam Sims.
The audio study guides will be available to download from audiobook retailers including Audible, Apple Books and Google Play from 13th August, with an r.r.p. of £13.
