'The Tempest' has long been regarded as Shakespeare's swan-song, though recent chronologies suggest he went on to compose 'Henry VIII' and 'The Two Noble Kinsmen' after. In its first publication (in the First Folio of 1623), 'The Tempest' appears in the 'Comedies' section. In modern criticism, it is more likely to be described as a 'late play' (written towards the end of what we perceive to be Shakespeare's writing career, c. 1607-13) or a 'romance' - a group of plays set in an unspecified time and/or place, whose loose plots revolve round familial reunion and fantastical happenings.
