Here`s a more detailed look at what`s going on in each scene of The Tempest to help you watch and question the structure of the play. Stephano enters with Caliban and Trinculo. Caliban assures them: “Don`t be overflowing, the island is full of sounds, / sounds and soft air that give joy and do not hurt” and they follow the strange music. Although The Tempest is the first of Shakespeare`s comedies in the First Folio, it deals with both tragic and comic subjects, and modern critics have created a category of romance for this play and others of Shakespeare`s later plays. .
