Shakespeare's Mystery Play: A Study of "The Tempest."
Scholarly Press, 1972 - 247 pagina's
The author claims that "The Tempest" belongs to the same class of religious drama as the mediaeval Mysteries, Miracles, and Moralities; that it is an allegorical account of those psychological experiences which constitute what mystics call Initiation; that its main features must, therefore, of necessity resemble those of every ritual or ceremonial initiation which is based upon the authentic mystical tradition.
