The Tempest

A storm rages. Prospero, his daughter Miranda, and his monstrous servant Caliban watch from their desert island as a ship carrying the royal family is wrecked. Miraculously, all on board survive. Plotting, mistaken identities, bewitching love and drunkenness follow as the travellers explore the strange place of spirits and monsters on which they have landed. But they soon begin to realise all is not as it seems.

The titles in the Graphic Shakespeare series are an ideal introduction to Shakespeare’s plays, but can equally well be used as revision aids. The main characters and key events are brought to life in the simplified story and dramatic pictures, and the short extracts from the original play focus on key speeches in Shakespeare’s language. A portrait gallery of key characters provides an easy reference and difficult words are explained in on-the-page glossaries.

An Audio Book and Teachers Book accompany this title, please contact your School Representative for more information.
