The Tempest. Notes on Date and Text
The text of The Tempest is one of the cleanest in the Shakespeare canon, but it is not without its enigmas. Editors continue to disagree over whether and how to emend certain readings, and how to make sense of others where emendation does not help. The present study examines some of the more intractable problems, focusing on the solutions offered in the best editions of the play that are currently available, and proposing alternatives.
