The Tempest as Utopia

Check again later for room assignments.

The Tempest is officially Shakespeare’s last play. In it he fantasizes what it would be like to live on an isolated island as a father with a daughter as one’s constant companion, who then, under the father’s guidance, meets the young man she will marry, while the father contemplates old age, retirement, an end to his creative work as artist, and eventually death. A deformed native islander and an aerial spirit are also part of this Utopian world, far away from European civilization and wars.
