The Tempest is a romance/tragicomedy play written by William Shakespeare sometime between 1610–1611. It is regarded as the final play he wrote in his lifetime (he did write The Two Noble Kinsmen afterwards, but he co-wrote it with John Fletcher). While it was largely ignored when it was first performed, it has since risen in popularity with many arguing it as one of Shakespeare's best. Being his "final" play, it has many parallels to the Bard's life with many viewing the protagonist , Prospero, as a metaphor for Shakespeare himself.
