I 1 Venice. A street. 188 Bassanio, a young Venetian of noble rank, wishes to woo the beautiful and wealthy heiress Portia of Belmont. Having squandered his estate, he needs money to properly present himself as a suitor. Bassanio approaches his friend Antonio, a wealthy merchant of Venice, for a loan. Although Bassanio is already in debt to Antonio, Antonio agrees to loan the money to Bassanio. However, Antonio is cash poor – all of his money is invested in shipping enterprises – so Antonio gives Bassanio permission to borrow money on Antonio's credit.

The Tempest[edit]

Some of these synopses, in edited form, are from The Annotated Shakespeare for Colleges and Schools by Rev. David Bain, 1892.

Act Scene Location Appr. # lines Synopsis
I 1 On a ship at sea. 63 The play opens on board a ship having as passengers a king and his courtiers. The resources of the crew are taxed to the utmost in trying to cope with a storm which, evidently arising suddenly, eventually drives the vessel on a lee shore, apparently wrecked with loss of all hands. Alonso speaks to the boatswain kindly, Antonio and Sebastian with scorn and abuse, and Lord Gonzalo' is cheerful and witty to the last.
I 2 The island. Before Prospero's cell. 596 Prospero and his daughter Miranda are standing in front of their home on an island. Miranda has just witnessed the shipwreck, and, overwhelmed with grief at the suffering of those on board, she pleadingly entreats her father, who by his art has raised the storm, to quell its ravages. In justification, the old man narrates his own history antecedent to this shipwreck. Twelve years ago Prospero was Duke of Milan. Passionately devoted to his studies, he neglected dukedom and placed its management in the hands of his jealous brother Antonio. The latter confederated with Alonso, the King of Naples, to hold Milan as the fief of his crown, obtaining in return the aid of a Neapolitan army. With the help thus furnished, Antonio made himself master of Milan and ruthlessly turned the lawful duke and his infant daughter adrift in an open and worthless boat. Fortunately, Gonzalo, who reluctantly carried out his master's orders, provided the castaways with the necessaries of life and a bundle of books from Prospero's library. They were cast upon this island — their home ever since. Miranda is soothed to sleep. Prospero's summons Ariel, his spirit servant. From a conversation between the two, we learn that Sycorax, a witch and mother of the monster Caliban, was in former days banished from Argiers, and turned loose upon this island. For a dozen years this witch imprisoned Ariel in the trunk of a tree. Prospero, on arriving on the island, freed Ariel. In gratitude, Ariel has served Propero since then, who has further promised Ariel complete freedom on the accomplishment of certain tasks. Ariel recounts his management of the storm, and how he had provided that nobody died. All, safely landed, were dispersed in groups throughout the island. Ferdinand, King Alonso's son, almost frantic in despair, was sitting alone in an out-of-the- way creek, imagining that he alone was saved. When Ariel has fully reported his exploits, Miranda awakens. Her father suggests a visit to Caliban, his slave. This monster had, on the death of his mother, become lord of the island, where he was found by Prospero. Prospero says he at first treated Caliban kindness, teaching him language and astronomy, but soon perceived that the monster was only fit for serfdom. Suddenly reappearing, Ariel leads Prince Ferdinand into the scene. The prince and Miranda fall in love at first sight. Prospero, however, treats the prince harshly, accusing him of being a spy. Miranda endeavors to mitigate her father's harshness.
II 1 Another part of the island. 359 On another part of the island are King Alonso, Antonio, Gonzalo, Sebastian, Adrian, Francisco, and others. Alonso grieves because he believes his only son, Ferdinand, is drowned. Gonzalo tries to comfort him with little success. Antonio, Sebastian, and Adrian discuss the recent marriage of Alonso's only daughter Claribel and the Prince of Tunis, from whose wedding they were traveling home. Ariel enters and magically puts to sleep everyone except Antonio and Sebastian. Antonio suggests that Sebastian should murder his brother, King Alonso, and thus himself become King of Naples. They almost do so when the others awake.
II 2 Another part of the island. 170 Caliban is at work on his daily chores when Trinculo, the court jester, arrives. Caliban thinks Trinculo is one of Prospero's spirits. Stephano, the King's drunken butler, arrives. Caliban takes the butler for a god and swears loyalty to him. The three decide to be sole owners of the island.
III 1 Before Prospero's cell. 114 Ferdinand is hauling logs, a chore assigned him by Prospero. Miranda arrives to cheer and comfort him in his task. She is overjoyed to find that her love is reciprocated.
III 2 Another part of the island. 146 Stephano, Trinculo, and Caliban plot to kill Prospero. Stephano is to marry Miranda and become sole monarch. Ariel enters, and entices the three to follow him. They yield to Ariel's charms, having first consented to delay the execution of the plot.
III 3 Another part of the island. 126 Alonso and his courtiers continue to search for Ferdinand. They are almost overcome by exhaustion, but Sebastian and Antonio are glad that another opportunity will soon be afforded them of carrying out their plot upon Alonso. Invisible to all, Prospero and Ariel enter. A sumptuous banquet is provided before the eyes of the starving courtiers, who are invited to eat, and as they are about to partake, the feast is snatched away by an unseen hand. Ariel now upbraids them for their former crimes, especially the ‘three men of sin,' Alonso, Sebastian, and Antonio. Believing Ariel's voice to be their own evil conscience, they rush off in frantic despair. Gonzalo urges the other members of the company to follow in haste to prevent, if possible, any disaster.
IV 1 Before Prospero's cell. 285 Prospero agrees to the betrothal of Ferdinand and Miranda. Following some fatherly advice to Miranda, he furnishes, for their entertainment, a masque, enacted by Ariel and Ariel's fellows. Ariel enters to say that Stephano, Trinculo, and Caliban are now on their way, still intent on their murderous project. At Prospero's command, Ariel places upon a line some ‘trumpery' taken from Prospero's wardrobe, to catch, as he says, these thieves. Having entered, the drunken three now load themselves with the trumpery. Prospero sends after them his servant sprites, disguised as hounds, eventually driving the thieves into a stagnant pool.
V 1 Before Prospero's cell. 361 Ariel brings Alonso and his followers to Prospero to hear the sentence which Prospero is about to pronounce. Prospero reveals himself to his brother and to Alonso. Alonso, smitten with remorse, offers to resign the dukedom of Milan and bewails the loss of his son. Prospero remarks that he, too, has lost a daughter, and then, withdrawing a curtain, Ferdinand and Miranda are disclosed, playing at chess. Ariel brings in the master and the boatswain, from whom we learn that the ship has been refitted, that the crew are all safe, and that nobody has died. The wandering plotters, Sebastian and Trinculo, are also brought before Prospero to receive sentence. It is a light one, merely to trim and arrange Prospero's cell for the company's reception. Caliban is and Ariel are discharged from servitude.
Ep. 20 Prospero asks the audience for permission to leave the island and return to Naples.
