Widely accepted as Shakespeare's last play, "The Tempest" is the fourth, and probably most complex of his late romances. Combining the elements of tragedy and romantic comedy, this play, which follows the story of the sorcerer, Prospero, explores the opposition between reality and illusion. Prospero and his daughter, Miranda, who have been stranded on an island for 12 years, find their lives change as Prospero conjures a storm to shipwreck his brother, Antonio, who originally deposed him from his dukedom. At its heart, the play explores the ageless question: what does it mean to be human?
This edition is based on the 1914 Oxford edition, which ranks among the most authoritative of the 20th century.
