William Shakespeare's The Tempest

Ratri Ray (Author)
Synopsis To make Shakespeare comprehensible to the eager student is a challenging task and this is what the present work sets out to do. It provides the reader with the life and short notes on the works of Shakespeare as well as his socio-political and literary background. A scene-wise critical summary of The Tempest is given so as to make the reader familiar with the play. Numerous quotations have been given from the text that enable the reader to have an acquaintance with Shakespeare's poetry. There are analyses of the different dramatic elements accompanied with the views of renowned critics, and this makes the book valuable to the teacher as well as the student of English literature. Along with recent critical views, the classical theories also have been explained, together with a lucid exposition of Elizabethan dramatic conventions. A select bibliography and index completes the book.
