The Tempest free pdf When King Alonso of Naples and his entourage sail home for Italy after attending his daughter Claribel's wedding in Tunis, Africa, they encounter a violent tempest. Everyone jumps overboard and are washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the magician Prospero who has deliberately conjured up the storm. Who is this Prospero and why does he conjure the tempest? What is the power that he has on the spirits inhabiting the island, especially the half human, half savage Caliban? A delightful romantic drama with undertones of betrayal and retribution, domination and subjugation, The Tempest remains to this day one of the more popular plays written by Shakespeare. The themes of freedom, friendship, repentance and forgiveness are beautifully treated, and by the end of the play, the tempest - both real and figurative - has calmed the most vengeful of avengers and washed away the sins of the most evil of wrongdoers.

About William Shakespeare

Famously known as 'The Bard of Avon', William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, most probably on 23rd April 1564. We say probably because till date, nobody has conclusive evidence for when Shakespeare was born. His father, John Shakespeare, was a successful local businessman and his mother, Mary Arden, was the daughter of a wealthy landowner. In 1582, an eighteen-year-old William married an older woman named Anne Hathaway. Soon, they had their first daughter, Susanna, and later, two other children. William's only son, Hamnet, died at the tender age of eleven. Translated into innumerable languages across the globe, Shakespeare's plays and sonnets are undoubtedly the most studied writings in the English language. A rare playwright, he excelled in tragedies, comedies, and histories. Skillfully combining entertainment with unmatched poetry, some of his most famous plays are Othello, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, and The Merchant of Venice, among many others. Shakespeare was also an actor. In 1599, he became one of the partners in the new Globe Theatre in London and a part owner of his own theatre company called The Chamberlain's Men - a group of remarkable actors who were also business partners and close friends of Shakespeare. When Queen Elizabeth died in 1603 and was succeeded by her cousin King James of Scotland, The Chamberlain's Men was renamed The King's Men. Shakespeare died in 1616. The characters he created and the stories he told have held the interest of people for the past 400 years. Till date, his plays are performed all over the world, and have been turned into movies, comics, cartoons, operas, and musicals.
