Usurped from this throne by his deceitful brother, Prospero, the Duke of Milan, conjures a tempest in order to lure his brother, Antonio, and Antonio’s co-conspirator, King Alonso, to the duke’s island hideaway. In so doing, Prospero reveals Antonio’s true nature and restores himself and his daughter, Miranda, to their rightful places.
Known as “The Bard of Avon,” William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare’s works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare’s innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech.
