by Julie Taymor and William Shakespeare and Jonathan Bate




Overview -
The book of The Tempest is both a handsome edition of Julie Taymor's eminently readable adaptation of Shakespeare's play and a stunning visual narrative of her new film, which stars Helen Mirren as Prospera, the magician/alchemist in a bold, gender-switched realization.
