One of Shakespeare's final plays, "The Tempest "is often considered a jewel in the canon of English literature. Mythic, impassioned characters dictate the action, all of which takes place on a moody, windswept island far from the shores of Great Britain.
"'The Tempest' and Its Travels "considers the rich legacy of this play's productions abroad. Distinguished contributors explore "The Tempest"'s contemporary translations at the hands of actors, directors, and writers from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean to North and South America. Matching the eclectic nature of the play itself, '"The Tempest' and I""ts Travels "departs from traditional casebook models, bringing together an innovative collection of critical and creative readings, as well as historical images of the play's productions. The book will provide fruitful reading for scholars and students in a variety of disciplines.
"This is an ambitious, bold, and imaginative collection that truly becomes something greater than even the sum of its impressive parts."--David Scott Kastan, Columbia University
