Duca, mago, scienziato: è Prospero il demiurgo della Tempesta, ultimo capolavoro del poeta, forse il più personale dei drammi di Shakespeare. Spodestato dal ducato di Milano, dopo aver vissuto dodici anni in un’isola deserta con la figlia Miranda, con il “selvaggio” Caliban e lo spirito Ariel, usa i suoi poteri magici per scatenare una tempesta, far espiare al re di Napoli e al fratello Antonio le loro colpe e riacquistare il ducato perduto, non prima di aver propiziato il matrimonio della figlia con Ferdinando, figlio del re di Napoli. La tempesta è una favola pervasa da una visione rassegnata e insieme serena della vita. Sulla magica isola, fantasia e realtà si compongono in un mondo dove il dolore e la violenza sono presenti ma esorcizzati da grazia e saggezza, dove una natura animata da occulte presenze svia e ricongiunge i destini dei protagonisti sotto l’abile e benevola regia del vecchio duca. Alla fine Prospero rinuncerà alla magia per essere solo un uomo preparato a morire, cui il distacco dalle passioni e la perdita delle illusioni permettono «di comprendere molto e di accettare il resto».

The Tempest, abridged. *or maybe not so abridged. But in my defense, this play is really fucking complicated* MIRANDA: So, um, Daddy, did you notice that huge-ass storm that just crashed a ship on the shore of our previously deserted island? PROSPERO: Wow, is it exposition time already? Okay, kiddo, Leggi tutto
Simple yet profound, The Tempest is a heartbreakingly sincere piece of elaborate theatrical artifice. Shakespeare is a magician at the height of his powers, so accomplished at his craft that he can reveal the mechanisms of his most marvelous tricks and still astonish us. This time through, I was stru Leggi tutto

It’s so easy to judge Caliban based upon his actions and his violent speech, but he does have some real problems that cause them. He tried to rape Miranda. This is, of course, an absolutely terrible thing; however, does Caliban actually know this? In his life he has only known two people prior to me Leggi tutto
The Tempest, William Shakespeare The Tempest is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1610–1611, and thought by many critics to be the last play that Shakespeare wrote alone. It is set on a remote island, where the sorcerer Prospero, rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore Leggi tutto
William Shakespeare's last play which he wrote every word of, the burnt-out but rich distinguished gentleman just wanted to go back to his little, quiet, pretty home town of Stratford-upon-Avon and relax, enjoy himself.

The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's last plays, and somehow he probably knew this as he was writing and producing it: while I was rereading this book for the umpteenth time, I realised how strongly this particular play goes over and wraps up all the thirty-five plays that came before it. The plot is Leggi tutto

William Shakespeare’s The Tempest is interesting on so many levels. I especially like how it looks at both the economic benefits of colonialism along with its much uglier side, namely, exploitation and racism. In the play, Prospero, as banished duke of Milan, has taken control of a small island and Leggi tutto
