Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure. A magical escapist fantasy centered around the disruption of social order, The... Tempest is one of Shakespeare's most poetic and political comedies. This edition features illustrations by renowned artist Sir John Gilbert and a new introduction by actor, writer and director Simon Callow. As tumultuous waves roar over an uninhabited Mediterranean island, Prospero has been banished from Italy, Ferdinand and Miranda become entwined in a love knot, Sebastian and Antonia plot a murder, a drunken butler wants the throne and Ariel and Caliban have lost power over their home. Shakespeare lyrically transforms the stage into a shipwreck and leaves his characters to fight for control of the island.
