9780198319993: Oxford School Shakespeare: The Tempest

This edition of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" is part of a series with a fully annotated text, helpful sections at the front and back and a wide range of questions for students, as well as the background to Shakespeare's England. The text is unabridged and a detailed introduction provides insight into the characters and an overview of the storyline. Brief descriptions of the action at the beginning of each scene help students to keep up with the plot and difficult words and obscure phrases are explained as they occur. The pages are divided into two columns so that the text and notes appear side-by-side. This text is aimed at students from the age of 14 to 16.

Book Description:

The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's most suggestive, yet most elusive plays. It is a magical romance, yet deeply embedded in seventeenth-century debates about authority and power. This edition attends to the implications of Prospero's magic, his political and paternal ambitions, and the controversial issue of his 'colonialist' control of Caliban. The Tempest was also Shakespeare's response to the new opportunities offered by the Blackfriars theatre, and careful attention is given to the play's dramatic form, stage-craft, and use of music and spectacle, to demonstrate its uniquely experimental nature.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
