In i The Tempest i long considered one of Shakespeare s most lyrical plays Prospero a magician on an enchanted island punishes his enemies brings happiness to his daughter and comes to terms with human use of supernatural power i The Tempest i embodies both seemingly timeless romance and the historically specific moment in which Europe begins to explore and conquer the New World br br Its complexity of thought its range of characters from the spirit Ariel and the monster Caliban to the beautiful Miranda and her prince Ferdinand its poetic beauty and its exploration of difficult questions that still haunt us today make this play wonderfully compelling br br i The Tempest i is a play by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in It is set on a remote island where Prospero the exiled Duke of Milan plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skilful manipulation The eponymous tempest brings to the island Prospero s usurping brother Antonio and the complicit Alonso King of Naples There his machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio s low nature the redemption of Alonso and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso s son Ferdinand, Renowned as Shakespeare s most boisterous comedy The Taming of the Shrew is the tale of two young men the hopeful Lucentio and the worldly Petruchio and the two sisters they meet in Padua br br Lucentio falls in love with Bianca the apparently ideal younger daughter of the wealthy Baptista Minola But before they can marry Bianca s formidable elder sister Katherine must be wed Petruchio interested only in the huge dowry arranges to marry Katherine against her will and enters into a battle of the sexes that has endured as one of Shakespeare s most enjoyable works, In Othello Shakespeare creates a powerful drama of a marriage that begins with fascination between the exotic Moor Othello and the Venetian lady Desdemona with elopement and with intense mutual devotion and that ends precipitately with jealous rage and violent deaths He sets this story in the romantic world of the Mediterranean moving the action from Venice to the island of Cyprus and giving it an even more exotic coloring with stories of Othello s African past Shakespeare builds so many differences into his hero and heroine differences of race of age of cultural background that one should not perhaps be surprised that the marriage ends disastrously But most people who see or read the play feel that the love that the play presents between Othello and Desdemona is so strong that it would have overcome all these differences were it not for the words and actions of Othello s standard bearer Iago who hates Othello and sets out to destroy him by destroying his love for Desdemona As Othello succumbs to Iago s insinuations that Desdemona is unfaithful fascination which dominates the early acts of the play turns to horror especially for the audience We are confronted by spectacles of a generous and trusting Othello in the grip of Iago s schemes of an innocent Desdemona who has given herself up entirely to her love for Othello only to be subjected to his horrifying verbal and physical assaults the outcome of Othello s mistaken convictions about her faithlessness, Shakespeare s intertwined love polygons begin to get complicated from the start Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander Bad news is Hermia s father wants Demetrius for a son in law On the outside is Helena whose unreturned love burns hot for Demetrius Hermia and Lysander plan to flee from the city under cover of darkness but are pursued by an enraged Demetrius who is himself pursued by an enraptured Helena In the forest unbeknownst to the mortals Oberon and Titania King and Queen of the faeries are having a spat over a servant boy The plot twists up when Oberon s head mischief maker Puck runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking Throw in a group of labourers preparing a play for the Duke s wedding one of whom is given a donkey s head and Titania for a lover by Puck and the complications become fantastically funny br br
