Product description

Synopsis

This title is edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex. "The Tempest" is the most lyrical, profound and fascinating of Shakespeare's late comedies. Prospero, long exiled from Italy with his daughter Miranda, seeks to use his magical powers to defeat his former enemies. Eventually, having proved merciful, he divests himself of that magic, his 'art', and prepares to return to the mainland. "The Tempest" has often been regarded as Shakespeare's 'farewell to the stage' before his retirement.

About the Author

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) needs little introduction. As we approach the four-hundredth anniversary of his death, his reputation as one of the greatest writers in the English language is undeniable - except by those who attribute his works to other writers.
