Next, a collection of works by Ovid, William Strachey, and others provides context for its major themes. Eighteen interpretive essays address such topics as the character of Caliban and the symbolism of shipwreck. Finally, 17 re-scriptings of the play—from Percy Shelley's "With a Guitar, to Jane" to Ted Hughes's "Setebos"—are presented.
