The Oxford Shakespeare: The Tempest
Complex, personal and unsurpassably lyrical; rediscover one of Shakespeare's most finely nuanced plays. Published by Oxford University Press.
In the First Folio of Shakespeare, The Tempest was placed first; an unmistakable sign of the importance attached to it by its editors. For generations of Shakespeare scholars this play was the epitome of Shakespeare's work. The Tempest is concerned with tragic as well as comic themes, making it a play that defies easy categorisation. This lends it a fascination which has compelled the attention of critics and audiences alike ever since it was first performed.
