    “Presenting an utterly reliable text, together with a rich collection of social, historical, and performance-based materials, this edition illuminates our understanding of the play as it has been interpreted traditionally, while simultaneously pointing the way to innovative, revisionist readings for the future.”
    —S. P. Cerasano, Colgate University

    “The Norton Critical Tempest is a truly wonderful resource: it illuminates Shakespeare’s most open-ended play with a wealth of richly suggestive contextual materials—on magic, on human perfectibility, on travel and alien worlds, on colonial domination, on religion and politics. Providing a well-selected sampling of interpretive criticism and artistic rewritings, the edition will inspire students to become researchers and re-creators themselves as they bring these texts into conversation with Shakespeare’s magical and enigmatic creation.”
