Prospero is the rightful Duke of Milan, who was disposed by his brother Antonio and forced to flee the country with his young daughter, Miranda. For years, they have occupied a remote island that’s suddenly disturbed by his brother’s return.

A ship carrying a group of passengers including King Alonso and Antonio, the Duke of Milan, crash on an isolated island. The land has been home to Prospero, Antonio’s brother who is also the rightful duke. Prospero has used magic to bring the men to him where he plans to enact his revenge. But he must navigate the romance between his daughter Miranda, and the king’s son, Ferdinand, as well as the growing resentment of his manservant Caliban.

The Tempest centers a family in crisis alongside a budding love story. It’s a captivating tale full of magic and striking visuals that amplify the characters’ internal conflict. The play was famously adapted for film in 2010 with Oscar-winner Helen Mirren as Prospera, a female version of Prospero.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Tempest is both modern and readable.

William Shakespeare (1564–1616) is arguably the most famous playwright to ever live. Born in England, he attended grammar school but did not study at a university. In the 1590s, Shakespeare worked as partner and performer at the London-based acting company, the King’s Men. His earliest plays were Henry VI and Richard III, both based on the historical figures. During his career, Shakespeare produced nearly 40 plays that reached multiple countries and cultures. Some of his most notable titles include Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet and Julius Caesar. His acclaimed catalog earned him the title of the world’s greatest dramatist.
