Product Description

The Tempest (The New Cambridge Shakespeare)

Author/s: William Shakespeare

Editor/s: David Lindley

The Tempest is one of the most suggestive, yet most elusive of all Shakespeare's plays, and has provoked a wide range of critical interpretations.

It is a magical romance, yet deeply and problematically embedded in seventeenth-century debates about authority and power.

In this updated edition, David Lindley has thoroughly revised the introduction and reading list to take account of the latest directions in criticism and performance.

Including a new section on casting in recent productions, Lindley's introduction explores the complex questions this raises about colonisation, racial and gender stereotypes, and the nature of the theatrical experience.

Careful attention is also given to the play's dramatic form, stagecraft, and use of music and spectacle, to demonstrate its uniquely experimental nature.
