The Tempest was written by William Shakespeare, who was born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon in England. He was one of the most influential writers in the history of English Literature, the writer of about 38 plays and 154 sonnets, and the part-owner of the Globe Theatre. The original date of some of his works is uncertain, therefore the order of the plays and sonnets are questionable. However, since Shakespeare used material, that was not available until late 1610 (letters from the new Virginia colony in Jamestown, and an account of a shipwreck off Bermuda), we suppose that The Tempest was written in 1610-1611. It was first performed at Court by The King 's Men (Previously known as Lord Chamberlain 's Men, a theatrical company, it became The King 's Men in 1603, when King James I ascended the throne and became the company 's patron.)
During the previous century, ships of many nations had crashed on its reefs, and a few survivors had lived to describe the “Isle of Devils,”(Vaughan 13) but the most tangible signs of those accidental visits were the wild hogs whose ancestors swam ashore from shipwrecked vessels. Yet Bermuda, as the Sea Venture‘s passengers quickly realized, seemed to be an island where paradise strategically located for transatlantic commerce or piracy and free for the taking. Instead of the reputed devils and malicious spirits, the English encountered docile and abundant birds, fish, tortoises, and the immigrant hogs; fruits and berries were present(Vaughan 13). The climate was salubrious, the environment healthy. Yet, English had, unexpectedly, discovered a land of wonders -- where bigger wonders than what their destinations had were.
In Act 1 of The Tempest, Prospero watches from an island as a ship offshore is mutilated by a nearby storm. The Tempest was written by Shakespeare in 1610, and it is commonly believed that the setting of the play is based off of a tempest that occurred in Bermuda just a mere year
William Shakespeare, commonly referred to as the “bard”, was baptized on April 26, 1564, and died in 1616 at the age of 52. In his lifetime, he wrote 37 plays, as well as 154 sonnets. One of his most popular plays, Romeo and Juliet, is set in the city of Verona, Italy, where two young lovers end their lives for one another.

Shakespeare should be included in the high school curriculum because his work has shaped modern literature, as well as the modern teenager.

Although it was at war with the powerful Spanish state, England was still a country full of strength and vitality under the reign of Queen Elizabeth entering the Renaissance a hundred years after Italy. In the field of literature, the Cultural Revolution was initiated by the genius of playwright, William Shakespeare. Overturning a tradition that had his origins from the time of Aristotle, according to which art imitates nature, has combined Shakespeare comedy, tragedy, history and drama, becoming one of the few narrators venerated by both the masses and the world of royalty.

There he raised his daughter from childhood, Mirana, and encountered the fascinating creature Caliban and the spirit Ariel. Prospero made Ariel his right hand while Caliban became a slave who is the previous master of the island. Prospero made a Tempest which he said to come from the use of witchcraft or magic to manipulate certain things just like the storm that hit the ship of the King of Naples. We might have seen The Tempest as a supernatural literary piece but almost all of the characters on the play are just part of Prospero 's political experiment. Prospero was once a philosopher in Milan but after he was overthrown, he started to realize the meaning of Machiavellian politics.
