purpose of abstract[edit]

The first part of the article/the abstract should say why the article is important, what role The Tempest plays in the world. No? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.132.3.10 (talk) 03:26, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, the fourth paragraph in the lead includes "in the 20th century, critics and scholars undertook a significant re-appraisal of the play's value, to the extent that it is now considered to be one of Shakespeare's greatest works." See also the Afterlife section near the end of the article. --GuillaumeTell 11:20, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Introductory text is inconsistent with feminist criticism section. According to intro, "Because of the small role that women play in the story, The Tempest has not attracted much feminist analysis." According to feminist criticism section, "Because of the small role women play in the story in comparison to other Shakespeare plays, The Tempest has attracted much feminist criticism." These statements are contradictory.144.174.255.103 (talk) 18:24, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

"Further Reading" Section[edit]

User:Tom Reedy Why were these cites and this one deleted? These articles are published in mainstream Shakespearean journals and the book is published by an established publisher. Knitwitted (talk) 02:20, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

You need to ask these questions on your user talk page; I'm not going to chase you around WP to answer a question you already know the answer to. I suggest you read WP:RS. Tom Reedy (talk) 02:24, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
