    The Tempest

  1. Author: Shakespeare, William
    Title: The Tempest
    Date: 1623
    Genre: drama
    Note Relating to Cather: In "The Treasure of Far Island," when they reach the shore of the island Douglass Burnham exclaims: "Descend, O Miranda, upon your island!" The epigraph to Cather's Home Monthly column on Daudet's Kings in Exile is from The Tempest, Act I scene ii: "My library was dukedom large enough." According to an 1894 Journal article, in an essay on Emile Zola, Cather writes that he "crouches like Caliban upon his island, and the music of Ariel is to him only a noise which frightens and disturbs."
