"[Lindley's] edition meets the high standards of the series in an exemplary manner, offering an especially fine introduction." -Studies in English Literature
"David Lindley's edition of The Tempest is easily the most outstanding version of this ostensibly straightforward yet hugely teasing play produced over the last thirty years. Its precise and scrupulous commentary notes are careful to the variety of ways the text can be spoken on stage. Its notes on the music and songs are admirably evocative, and its economical account of the huge range of critical views will send thousands of readers out in fruitful chases after the play's own multitudinous interests. - Andrew Gurr, editor of the forthcoming New Variorum Tempest --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
