"An elegantly subtle drama...and like several other Shakespearean masterworks, it is hard to hold steady...the audience can be baffled by a protagonist so clearly in the right and yet essentially antipathetic." -Harold Bloom
Each edition in the Harold Bloom Shakespeare series will include the full text of the play, with editorial revisions and commentary by Harold Bloom.

For many, "The Tempest" constitutes Shakespeare's farewell to the stage. It seems to foreshadow a powerful movement of retreat, and it stands as one of the most evocative and moving explorations of human possbilities and limits. Contains a selection of the finest criticism through the centuries on "The Tempest", as well as a biography of Shakespeare.
