Critical consensus places the composition of The Tempest sometime in the years Its first recorded performance was before King James I on November 1,making it one of the last, if not the last, drama that Shakespeare produced without the help of a collaborator.
His dukedom had been usurped by his own brother, Antonio, whom Prospero had entrusted to manage the affairs of government while he was concentrating on his study of the liberal arts. With the support of Alonso, the King of Naples, Antonio conspired against his brother to become the new Duke of Milan.
Providence has now brought his enemies to the shore of the island, and Prospero must act quickly. The action begins with a tempestuous storm at sea. Ariel, an airy spirit, raised the tempest just as he was instructed by Prospero, his master, informing Prospero that all except the mariners plunged into the sea.
Ariel reports that he has left the ship safely docked in the harbor with the mariners aboard. The rest of the passengers, with garments unblemished, have been dispersed around the island.
To keep Ferdinand from winning his prize Miranda too quickly and easily, Prospero uses his magic to force Ferdinand to yield to the indignity of stacking logs. While they sleep Antonio and Sebastian conspire to kill Alonso and Gonzalo and take over the throne.
Just as they draw their swords, Ariel awakens Gonzalo and he, in turn, rouses the king. The conspirators claim that they heard wild animals and drew their swords. The king readily accepts their excuse.
Caliban enters, cursing his master, Prospero, for enslaving him. Stephano approaches them, thinking it is a monster with four legs. He finally recognizes Trinculo and is surprised to see him alive. Stephano, having drifted ashore on a barrel of wine, offers Caliban a drink.
Prospero magically sets a banquet for the royal party, but Ariel, disguised as a harpy, claps his wings over the table, and it vanishes. Ariel warns the royal party that the storm was a punishment for their foul deeds, and there is no way out except repentance.
Though Caliban is annoyed, his companions are gleefully sidetracked, stealing the royal robes and forgetting their purpose at hand which is to murder Prospero.
Finally, spirits in the shape of dogs are released, and the thieving trio are driven out. The king and his party are brought to Prospero where he charms them in his magic circle, praising Gonzalo for his kindness, but censuring Alonso for his cruelty and Antonio for his ambition.
In a sudden spirit of forgiveness, he pardons all of them for their crimes against him. He then leads Alonso to his cell where Ferdinand and Miranda are making a pretense of playing chess.
Alonso is overjoyed to see his son alive. Ariel enters with the master and boatswain of the ship.
The three conspirators, driven by Ariel, appear in their stolen royal apparel. In the morning they will return to Naples where they will prepare for the marriage of the betrothed pair, Ferdinand and Miranda.The Fallacies of Egoism and Altruism, and the Fundamental Principle of Morality (after Kant and Nelson) I have not done wrong.
