Overview

The The Tempest Tempest by William Shakespeare

This bewitching play, Shakespeare's final work, articulates a wealth of the playwright's mature reflections on life and contains some of his most familiar and oft-quoted lines. The story concerns Miranda, a lovely young maiden, and Prospero, her philosophical old magician father, who dwell on an enchanted island, alone except for their servants -- Ariel, an invisible sprite, and Caliban, a monstrous witch's son.
Into their idyllic but isolated lives comes a shipwrecked party that includes the enemies who usurped Prospero's dukedom years before, and set him and his daughter adrift on the ocean. Also among the castaways is a handsome prince, the first young man Miranda has ever seen. Comedy, romance, and reconciliation ensue, in a masterly drama that begins with a storm at sea and concludes in joyous harmony.
Students, poetry lovers, and drama enthusiasts will treasure this convenient, modestly priced edition of one of Shakespeare's greatest plays and one of literature's finest comedies.

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

You need to take your time because if you rush into it you will not get the full effect as you will if you would take your time and understand. I think that you should read this and act out some of your favorite scenes!!! Just have FUN!!

I personally feel that of all of Shakespeare's works, the language in The Tempest is one of the easiest to understand. That being said, the notes and meanings given on the left-hand pages helped immensely while reading. I will ALWAYS buy Barnes and Noble Shakespeare.

Because I never received it. I am writing this review because I have had the most abysmal customer service from B&N. I contacted B&N after my package failed to arrive, though marked as delivered. They promptly responded via email and asked me to reply to the email indicating whether I wanted to cancel or have them ship out a new item, free of charge. I replied immediately to please ship a new item. I did not receive a confirmation or response. Days go by and I reply to the same thread, asking if they had an update; still no response. I continually monitor my online account for any changes. Finally, after a week, I call and ask about my order. The customer service representative said there was no record of my contact. I forwarded the entire email exchange to complain about the lack of response and never heard back. I submitted a separate email complaint to let them know that as a B&N member for the past six years, it was really disappointing that they couldn't even bother to acknowledge my dismal experience. Obviously, I have never heard back; however, I still get "reminder" emails that I have items in my cart. Meanwhile, I had the exact same problem with Amazon and they replaced my order AND upgraded me to overnight shipping AND gave me a five dollar credit for the hassle. I will not be shopping at Barnes and Noble anymore, which is truly a shame. I am so disappointed.

Was hoping to use this to teach my sophomores, but the footnotes are just a black screen. Disappointed I bought the more expensive copy of the play now.

A classic. A number of contemporary plays, movies, and books re-use the plot.

I'm reviewing the NookBook formatting, not the play. If you plan on purchasing this in eBook format for a class, I strongly suggest buying it in paperback. There are no line numbers! The footnotes refer to lines, but the lines themselves are numberless! I actually own this in paperback copy, but I left it at my parents' house and I needed it to write a paper. So, naturally I just decided to purchase it for my Nook instead of getting it mailed, however, the whole reason I needed it in the first place (to reference the lines) is nonexistant in the eBook format. Yes, it was only $5, but it almost seems pointless to read Shakespeare without the line numbers for reference.
