There is something that suddenly popped in my mind after I finished reading the Tempest. It’s that the book contains everything – human emotions, desire, joy and sorrow, making it a great work of literature. People say that it’s Shakespeare’s last work, and I thought the scene where Prospero discards his magic book, which he had been so passionate about and to which he devoted his whole life, is consistent with Shakespeare’s decision to retire.

One Response to Tempest

  1. That is right , Tempest is full of love and emotions as well as art and illusions of Prospero …Interesting thing about Tempest is that it did not get attention in theaters until English Monarchy was restored. It took writers a while to realize that it is a great work of literature.
