The Tempest is Shakespeare's masterpiece of magical effects, redemptive romance, poetry and politics.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features illustrations by renowned artist Sir John Gilbert and an introduction by actor, writer and director Simon Callow.

Prospero has long been exiled from Italy and banished to a remote island with his daughter Miranda. He uses his magical powers to conjure up a fearsome storm, and his enemies, including his treacherous broth Antonio, are shipwrecked. There follows a play filled with murderous plots, drunken confusion, love and redemption. And along the way, the reader discovers an unmistakable message that this is Shakespeare’s own farewell to the stage.

“Caliban is innocent”

Not my favourite from Shakespeare but still a memorable piece of work from him. I love Caliban and I just think he deserves better

“Enchanting new edition! Love the covers!”

I was lucky to get a preview of this new edition of The Tempest. The introduction really brought it to life anew. I wasn't expecting the stuff about climate and clothing. Recommended even if you think you already... More
