Description

Shakespeare's valedictory play is also one of his most poetical and magical. The story involves the spirit Ariel, the savage Caliban, and Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, now a wizard living on a remote island who uses his magic to shipwreck a party of ex-compatriots.


Praise For The Tempest (The Annotated Shakespeare)

"Two of the bard’s heavy dramas join Yale’s wonderful Annotated Shakespeare series. Along with a heavily annotated text, each volume includes a scholarly introduction plus notes on the annotations. All that for the price of a Happy Meal: how can you go wrong?"—Library Journal (refers to Henry the Fourth, Part 1 & The Tempest)


"Two of the bard’s heavy dramas join Yale’s wonderful Annotated Shakespeare series. . . . [How] can you go wrong?"—Library Journal
