James Schaefer asks about Macintosh Shakespeare software. I have been working
on (and just finished, for all practical purposes) an edition of Macbeth for
Voyager, which is aimed at audiences that range from the first time reader to
the full-time scholar. A.R. Braunmuller of UCLA provided the edition, notes,
and essays; his colleague David Rodes of UCLA provided the introduction and
scene-by-scene commentaries. We hope it will be available this summer. I don't
want to waste bandwidth by what might be construed as advertising, so contact
me by private e-mail if you want more details about this.
 
A company called Bookworm has a product called the Shakespeare Quartet, also
for Mac, which has four plays and lots of notes, and seems aimed at a general
market as well. I only got about a minute to look at a demo last January, so I
can't say much more than that (of course, MY product is much better because I
worked on it <*grin*>).
 
Unfortunately, both of them are CD-ROM products (which Schaefer intimated he
had less interest in). I have a feeling that most popular Shakespeare materials
for the Mac or Windows will be on CD-ROM--it is hard to put performances,
images, and sounds on a floppy based product.
