Ron’s #40: The Tempest by William Shakespeare

I had to read this again before I taught it this year to my 10th grade Honors class. It is not in the top of Shakespeare plays that I’ve read, but I do like the theme of exile, and the aspect that Prospero is a representation of Shakespeare himself.

Last year at this time, the movie version of The Tempest was released, changing Prospero to Prospera. I cannot figure out the reason for the change, except a political/ideological agenda. The movie was a critical and commercial flop, as it should be. This will prevent future Hamleta and Romea and Julieto films.
