“The Vaughans have provided a valuable new edition of the play, one whose expanded contextualization, especially, will contribute to The Tempest‘s lively and varied afterlife both within and beyond the classroom…Extensive, up-to-date critical introduction that incorporates recent and even forthcoming scholarship…Te introduction provides a formidable range of materials for teachers, performers, and directors. The section on âThe afterlifeâ of the text is especially strong, with a comprehensive survey of both stage and film productions, Particularly valuable is this sectionâs geographical breadth…Lavish illustrations further enhance the production history. The notes to the text itself are copious and replete with useful information, from staging possibilities to related literary usages. They also refer frequently to previous editions, providing a virtual map of the textâs editorial history. The notes…are a model of thorough scholarship.”âShakespeare Quarterly
Prospero, sorcerer and rightful Duke of Milan, along with his daughter Miranda, has lived on an island for many years since his position was usurped by his brother Antonio. Then, as Antonio’s ship passes near the island one day, Prospero conjures up a terrible storm…This play, combining elements of both tragedy and comedy, is believed by some to be the last Shakespeare wrote on his own, as well as one of his most fascinating works. The Signet edition also features an overview of Shakespeare’s life and times, commentary by William Strachey, Montaigne, and others, and a stage and screen history, among other special content.
