The Tempest was Shakespeare’s final play, and it follows the story of Milanese duke Prospero and his daughter, Miranda, as they’re cast out to sea and as they subsequently make their home in a new land. At least, that’s what I gathered – with Shakespeare, it can be pretty hard to follow the plot, and I found myself focussing more on the language itself than on the meaning of it whilst reading this. That said, I still enjoyed it a lot, especially because my copy was used and someone had scribbled notes on it.
