Setting of the Play

Ship on the sea and take place on an island
somewhere in the Mediterranian on Renaissance
Europe, and perhaps inspired by the real life tempest
which stranded several ships in Bermuda.

Gloomy, raging thunderstorm, mistic, few light
moments, magical, supernatural
supernatural mood:

“Full fathom five thy father lies;

Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell . . .
Hark! now I hear them,—Ding-dong, bell.”
• the dreamlike mood
“Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again. And then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again.”
