Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1857 edition. Excerpt: ... HISTORICAL NOTICE OF THE TEMPEST.. No one has hitherto been fortunate enough to discover the romance, on which Shakspeare rounded this play. Mr. Collins the poet is said indeed to have informed Mr. T. Warton, that it was founded on an old romance called 'Aurelio and Isabella, ' printed in Italian, Spanish, French, and English in 1588: but as no such work could be discovered by the acute and learned writer to whom this information was communicated, it was reasonably inferred by him, that Collins, in consequence of tne failure of memory during his last illness, had substituted the name of one novel for another. It seems probable, that the event, which immediately gave rise to the composition of this drama, was the voyage of Sir George Somen, who was shipwrecked on the Bermudas in 1609, and whose adventures were given to the public by Silvester Jourdan, one of his crew, with the following title: --' A Discovery of the Bermudas, otherwise called the Isle of Divels: by Sir Thomas Gates, Sir Geo. Sommers, and Captayne Newport, and divers others.' In this publication Jourdan informs us, that 'the islands of the Bermudas, as every man knoweth, that hath heard or read of them, were never inhabited by any Christian or heathen people- but ever esteemed and reputed a most prodigious and inchanted place, affording nothing but gusts, stormes, and foul weather- which made every navigator and mariner to avoid them as Scylla and Charybdis, or as they would shuu the devil himselfe.' It has hence been concluded that this play was written towards the close of 1611, and that it was brought on the stage early in the succeeding year. And give it way---I know thou canst not choose.ACT II. 'Whatever might be Shakspeare's intention, ' says Dr. Johnson, in forming.
