The Tempest at the Globe

Was Shakespeare written by Shakespeare?  People who want to poach his work for some noble pen ignore the references within the plays to the business of theatre.  The Tempest is a good example of this.  It gives knowing nods to the audience, the theatre and, in the figure of Prospero, Shakespeare himself.

The Globe Theatre in London does a solid job of putting the Bard on the boards.  In this extract you can feel the references clearly:  “We are such stuff as dreams are made of.”
