Overview

The Tempest has long dazzled readers and audiences with its intricate blend of magic, music, humour, intrigue and tenderness, its vibrant but ambiguous central characters. As Virginia and Alden Vaughan show, in their wide-ranging new edition of this established favourite, such antithetical extremes exemplify the play's endlessly arguable nature, its appeal to diverse eras and cultures.

The Vaughans situate The Tempest at the centre of changing cultural attitudes towards colonialism, power politics and patriarchal hierarchies, and demonstrate how the play both shaped and reflected those changing attitudes. Informed by the concerns of a post-colonial international community, their edition emphasises the play's world-wide cultural appropriation, and includes an extensive discussion of the play's after-life as well as an appendix of selected appropriations. The interdisciplinary editorial approach contributes a distinctively blended cultural and historical focus.

"The Vaughans have provided a valuable new edition of the play, one whose expanded contextualisation, especially, will contribute to The Tempest's lively and varied afterlife both within and beyond the classroom."—Barbara Fuchs, University of Washington, Seattle, Shakespeare Quarterly

For more than a century educators, students and general readers have relied on The Arden Shakespeare to provide the very best scholarship and most authoritative texts available. The Third Series editions' added emphasis on all aspects of Shakespeare performance extended the Arden editions readership to also become the preferred text for theatre professionals.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Vaughans have provided a valuable new edition of the play, one whose expanded contextualization, especially, will contribute to The Tempest's lively and varied afterlife both within and beyond the classroom...Extensive, up-to-date critical introduction that incorporates recent and even forthcoming scholarship...Te introduction provides a formidable range of materials for teachers, performers, and directors. The section on “The afterlife” of the text is especially strong, with a comprehensive survey of both stage and film productions, Particularly valuable is this section’s geographical breadth...Lavish illustrations further enhance the production history. The notes to the text itself are copious and replete with useful information, from staging possibilities to related literary usages. They also refer frequently to previous editions, providing a virtual map of the text’s editorial history. The notes...are a model of thorough scholarship."—Shakespeare Quarterly

    My fav Shakespeare....

    ....second only to 'The Winters Tale'. The main character serves as an image for a loving father, God Himself even. I was afraid when I took a course on Shakespeare that his stories would be too hard to follow in their old language, but it's really not that hard if you just stay focused and refer to Cliffsnotes whenever you get really lost.

    First Shakespeare I ever read.

    The reason I read this play was because of personal reasons. My ancestor Stephen Hopkins was aboard the Sea Venture in which influenced this play. Good read. Derek D

    Brilliant

    William Shakespeare's play The Tempest, is one of the best play i have read so far. In this play, Shakespeare conveys numerous things that relates to the real world. This play is not a easy play to understand. It takes time to know what's happening in each scene. Moreover, the reader needs to analyze each line carefully so he/she can understand what each line means.Over all, The tempest is a great play to read, and i am really sure that once your finished with the play, you would want to read another play by shakespeare.
