Video 'The Tempest': Shakespeare's farewell?

TLF ID M018821

'The Tempest' is believed by some to be Shakespeare's final play. With this in mind, could Prospero in some ways represent Shakespeare himself? If so, Prospero's epilogue at the end of the play takes on a new and poignant resonance. John Bell discusses the themes of giving up and letting go with Bell Shakespeare's James Evans. They also discuss whether this scene could mark Shakespeare's retirement from the theatre.
