Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed for “teaching the conflicts,” this critical edition of Shakespeares The Tempest reprints the Bevington text of the play along with critical essays representing major critical and cultural controversies surrounding the work. The play and essays are supported by distinctive editorial material — including introductions to Shakespeare's life and work, to critical conflicts in literary studies, and to each controversy that helps students grapple not only with the plays critical issues but also with cultural debates about literature itself.
