The tempest

William Shakespeare (Author), John W. Mahon (Editor), John M. Mucciolo (Editor)
"The New Kittredge Shakespeare edition of The Tempest builds on the celebrated scholarship and extensive notes of George Lyman Kittredge. This edition contains a new, updated introduction, with comments on contemporary film versions of the play, an essay on reading the play as performance, and topics for discussion, with an annotated bibliography and filmography. For this an accomplished Shakespeare and film scholar has been commissioned to modernize the volume. The series focuses on understanding the language and allusions in the play, as well as encountering Shakespeare as performance. The audience ranges from students at all levels to readers interested in encountering the text in the context of its performance on stage or on film"-- Provided by publisher
