SCENE-A Ship at Sea ; an Island.

1 Ariel, an airy Spirit. Dra'e, Shakspeare and his Times, vol. ii., p. 521, thinks that Shakespeare had read Batman uppon Bartholome, His Booke De proprietalibus Rerum, 1582, who tells us (p 168 col. 4) that

spirites are divided one from another, that some are called firie,

some earthly, some airie, and some watrie."

2 The Folio gives the “ Names of the Actors," i.c., the Dramatis Personæ, at the end of the play, where, too, the scene is described as “an vn-inhabited Island."
