Product Information

  • The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to readers worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance. The series, edited by an expert international team, includes all Shakespeare's plays, sonnets and poems, presented in attractively designed volumes.
  • Modernised texts
  • Full notes and lively introductions
  • Informative illustrations
  • Precise details of staging and performance
  • 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.
