Tempest – Act I, Scene I

Act I, Scene I

Painted by G. Romney
Engraved by B. Smith

‘The inchanted Island: Before the Cell of Prospero. Prospero & Miranda’

Ari. Not a soul / But felt a fever of the mad, and play’d / Some tricks of desperation: All, but mariners, / Plung’d in the foaming brine, and quit the vessel, / Then all a-fire with me: the King’s son Ferdinand, / With hair up-starting (then like reeds, not hair) / Was the first man that leap’d: cry’d, Hell is empty, / And all the devils are here.
