Summary Arden Student Guides offer a new type of study aid which combines lively critical insight with practical guidance on the critical and writing skills students need to develop in order to engage fully with Shakespeare's texts. The books' core focus is on langauge: both understanding and enjoying Shakespeare's rich and complex dramatic lanaguage, and the student's own critical language and how she can improve and develop this to become a critical writer. This volume on The Tempest discusses the play's early stage history before going on to examine the complexities and ambiguities of its language
