If you look at each act, we have seen some things. These are important character developments or key questions that a theatre company might ask itself by passing the play together for the first time at the beginning of the rehearsal. If you look at this as you go, they will help you make sense of the game. It`s a good idea to have a copy of the text nearby. Charles Knight produced the Pictorial edition of Shakespeare`s works in eight volumes (1838-1843). The work tried to translate the contents of the pieces into an image. This extended not only to the plot, but also to the images and metaphors: Gonzalo`s line on “The mountaineers who thaw like bulls” is illustrated by an image of a Swiss farmer with a goiter.  In 1908, Edmund Dulac produced an edition of Shakespeare`s Tempest comedy with a summary of scientific action and a commentary by Arthur Quiller-Couch, painstakingly attached and illustrated with 40 watercolour illustrations. The illustrations emphasize the magical quality of the room and avoid its shady side. Of the 40, only 12 are direct representations of the plot of the play: the others are based on the action before the beginning of the play, or on images like “Full your father lies” or “Sounds and soft air that give joy and do not hurt”.  There is a recording of a performance of The Tempest on November 1, 1611 by the King`s Men in front of Jakob I and the English Royal Court at Whitehall Palace on the night of Hallowmas.  The play was one of six Shakespeare plays (and eight others for a total of 14) that played at court during the winter of 1612/13 as part of the celebrations surrounding Princess Elizabeth`s marriage to Frederick V, the elector of the Palatinate on the Rhine. There is no other public performance recorded prior to recovery; but in his preface to the Dryden/Davenant version of 1669, John Dryden states that The Tempest was performed at the Blackfriars Theatre.  A close examination of the staging inside the play supports this, strongly suggesting that the play was written with the Blackfriars Theatre rather than the Globe Theatre.  Soon Caliban, Stefano and Trinculo will appear, fragrant and moist. Stefano and Trinculo complain about the loss of their bottles, but are much acclaimed when they see the clothes hanging nearby. Both ignore Caliban`s demands to continue their mission and his warnings that their hesitations will prompt Prospero to capture them. It is at this point that Prospero and Ariel enter with ghosts disguised as hunters and dogs.
