Paperback. 80 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.5in. x 0.2in.The most poetic and magical of Shakespeares comedies, this play contrasts lyrical fantasy surrounding the spirit Ariel and the savage Calaban, with a tale of political intrigue focused around Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, now a wizard living on a remote island. Books in this new, illustrated series present complete texts of Shakespeares plays. However, the lines are set up so students can see the bards original poetic phrases printed side-by-side and line-by-line with a modern translation on the facing page. Starting in the late 1580s and for several decades that followed, Shakespeares plays were popular entertainment for Londons theatergoers. His Globe Theatre was the equivalent of a Broadway theater in todays New York. The plays have endured, but over the course of 400 years, the English language has changed in many wayswhich is why todays students often find Shakespeares idiom difficult to comprehend. Simply Shakespeare offers an excellent solution to their problem. Introducing each play is a general essay covering Shakespeares life and times. At the beginning of each of the five acts in every play, a two-page spread describes what is about to take place. The storys background is explained, followed by brief descriptions of key people who will appear in the act, details students should watch for as the story unfolds, discussion of the plays historical context, how the play was staged in Shakespeares day, and explanation of puns and plays on words that occur in characters dialogues. Identifying icons preceding each of these study points are printed in a second color, then are located again as cross-references in the plays original text. For instance, where words spoken by a person in the play offer insights into his or another characters personality, the Characters icon will appear as a cross-reference in both the introductory spread and the play proper. Following each act, a closing spread presents questions and discussion points for use as teachers aids. Guided by the inspiring format of this fine new series, both teachers and students will come to understand and appreciate the genius of Shakespeare as never before.

Synopsis: King Alonso of Naples and his entourage sail home for Italy after attending his daughter Claribel's wedding in Tunis, Africa. They encounter a violent storm, or Tempest. Everyone jumps overboard and are washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the magician Prospero who has deliberately conjured up the storm. Prospero is in fact the rightful Duke of Milan who had been put to sea to die with his three-year-old daughter Miranda by his brother, Antonio who was in league with of King Alonso. Prospero and Miranda live in a cave on the island which is also inhabited by Ariel, a sprite who carries out the bidding of Prospero, and the ugly, half human Caliban. Caliban deeply resents Prospero as he believes that he is the rightful ruler of the island. He plots with some of King Alonso's company to murder Prospero. Miranda and Ferdinand fall deeply in love.
Book Description: The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's most suggestive, yet most elusive plays. It is a magical romance, yet deeply embedded in seventeenth-century debates about authority and power. This edition attends to the implications of Prospero's magic, his political and paternal ambitions, and the controversial issue of his 'colonialist' control of Caliban. The Tempest was also Shakespeare's response to the new opportunities offered by the Blackfriars theatre, and careful attention is given to the play's dramatic form, stage-craft, and use of music and spectacle, to demonstrate its uniquely experimental nature.
