Set in a topsy turvy world like a holiday revel this comedy devises a romantic plot around separated twins misplaced passions and mistaken identity Juxtaposed to it is the satirical story of a self deluded steward who dreams of becoming Count Malvolio only to receive his comeuppance at the hands of the merrymakers he wishes to suppress The two plots combine to create a farce touched with melancholy mixed throughout with seductively beautiful explorations on the themes of love and time and the play ends not with laughter but with a clown s sad song, 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, The action is set in Sicily where Don Pedro Prince of Aragon has recently defeated his half brother the bastard Don John in a military engagement Apparently reconciled they return to the capital Messina as guests of the Governor Leonato There Count Claudio a young nobleman serving in Don Pedro s army falls in love with Hero Leonato s daughter whom Don Pedro woos on his behalf The play s central plot shows how Don John maliciously deceives Claudio into believing that Hero has taken a lover on the eve of her marriage causing Claudio to repudiate her publicly at the altar, 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
