A small literary curiosity, of interest only to Shakespeare students and collectors of remote Shakespeariana. The volume consists of a long poem called The Tempest, learned, full of mediaeval and renaissance lore, occasionally lyrically beautiful, but pointless and synthetic. And of the second part, a prose rhapsody on the names and verses of Elizabethan and post-Elizabethan poets. The whole adds up to a piece of ""occasional"" writing. Apparently written for Shakespeare Day, April 23rd , 1945- and only now published here.
