About This Item

Wordsworth Editions Ltd. New. 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. . 1998. TRADE PAPERBACK.

Synopsis

The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s last solo-written plays. This tragedy tells the story of an exiled ruler who uses magic to restore his daughter to power and argues that the powerful must show mercy. First performed in 1611,  The Tempest  has been put to varied interpretations, from those that see it as a fable of art and creation, with Prospero representing Shakespeare, and Prospero's renunciation of magic signaling Shakespeare's farewell to the stage, to interpretations that consider it an allegory of Europeans colonizing foreign lands. O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world That has such people in ’t! (V.i.)
