The Tempest is set on a remote island, where Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island. There, his machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio's lowly nature, the redemption of the King, and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso's son, Ferdinand.

He too is marooned on an island with his daughter, but their spirit is from a bottle and not a tree and her name is Gidget. She wants to be free and to ride the wild surf. Bleach Blanket is filled with catchy ballads, love duets, '60s rock 'n' roll and even a visit from the Supreme Beings as the spirits of earth, wind and fire.

1 Thomas Adès and Meredith Oakes : The Tempest Michael Ewans , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Studies in Musical Theatre , December vol. 9 no. 3 2015; (p. 231-250)
'This article analyses the opera The Tempest, composed by Thomas Adès to a text written for him by Meredith Oakes (after Shakespeare); it was first staged at The Royal Opera House in London in 2004. The text is first examined for its relationship with Shakespeare’s original play; the plot, cuts, transpositions and significant additions are all examined; then the relationship between the dramatic themes of the opera and those of the source text, and the ways in which direct quotations from Shakespeare are used and reworked, are also considered. In these last two sections the music of the opera begins to feature in the analysis, and text and music are examined as an integrated whole in the sections that follow, which discuss in turn the four principal characters Prospero, Caliban, Miranda and Ariel. Two closing sections consider aspects of the structure and style of the music that have not been explored earlier in the article. There are numerous quotations from the libretto, three plates and five music examples.' (Publication abstract)

Barbara Jefferis (a.k.a. Barbara Tarlton Jefferis; Mrs John Hinde) b. 25 Mar 1917 d. 3 Jan 2004 (124 works by fr. 1951)

The daughter of Lucy Barbara Ingoldsby (Smythe) and Tarlton Jefferis, Barbara Jefferis was educated at Riverside in Adelaide and then began a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Adelaide. In 1939, she married John Hamilton Hinde, a film critic for the ABC. She moved to Sydney in her twenties and worked in daily and magazine journalism, then as a freelance radio writer. Jefferis wrote more than 50 radio dramas and dramatised documentaries as well as serials, scientific and educational programmes. She was a regular reviewer for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian. Her novels have been widely translated into European and Asian languages.

Jefferis was the first woman President of The Australian Society of Authors (ASA), serving three terms (1973-1976), and was a force in writers' politics from the time the society began in the 1960s. She was a member of the ASA executive from 1973 onwards, with particular interests in publishing contracts and Public Lending Right (PLR). Jefferis represented writers' interests on the Government's PLR committee fron 1979-1985; the last year as Acting PLR Chairman. She held the ASA's PLR portfolio from 1981-1989 and held the ASA's Contract Advisory Service portfolio from its inception.

Jefferis made cultural exchange visits to Russia, India and Canada.

The Barbara Jefferis Award for the best novel written by an Australian author that depicts women and girls in a positive way or otherwise empowers the status of women and girls in society was created in 2007 after being endowed by Jefferis's husband of sixty-four years John Hinde upon his death.

2 66 y Visitants Randolph Stow , London : Secker and Warburg , 1979 Z314711 1979 single work novel (taught in 1 units) Set in 1959 in the Trobriand Islands off the east coast of Papua, Visitants depicts a colonial outpost a few years away from independence, in which the white characters occupy a position of uneasy authority over the indigenous Islanders. The novel exposes the failures of communication between the two cultures, heightened by the inclusion of the well-documented sightings of four human figures in a disc-shaped craft in the sky above Boianai in June 1959. The narrative documents the psychic disintegration of another visitant, the white Patrol Officer Alistair Cawdor, who loses his ability to relate to other human beings, dreaming instead of contact with the star-people in the Boianai flying saucer. The parallel story of the islanders traces an adroit political coup against the ageing Paramount Chief, carried out under the cover of a cargo cult uprising.' Anthony J. Hassall 'Foreword ' (October 2002): x., Visitants (2003).

1 y The Land's Wild Music : Encounters with Barry Lopez, Peter Matthiessen, Terry Tempest Williams, and James Galvin Mark Tredinnick , San Antonio : Trinity University Press , 2005 Z1230642 2005 single work criticism 'A lyric reflection on the nature of landscape and its power to shape the lives and syntax of men and women. Examines the work of American writers Barry Lopez, Peter Matthiessen, Terry Tempest Williams, and James Galvin, looking at how their landscapes -- the Cascades, Long Island, the Colorado Plateau, and the high prairies of the Rocky Mountains -- have shaped them.'

1 Happily Ever After: William Shakespeare's The Tempest and Murray Bail's Eucalyptus Rebecca McNeer , 2002 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 16 no. 2 2002; (p. 171-176)

McNeer compares elements of similarity in Murray Bail's Eucalyptus and William Shakespeare's The Tempest. McNeer particularly examines fables, fairy tales and mythic stories that may have been available to Shakespeare and, derivatively, influenced Bail. The characters of Miranda in The Tempest and Ellen in Eucalyptus are compared as are their respective fathers, Prospero and Holland.

McNeer concludes with a quotation from G. Wilson Knight's The Crown of Life: Essays in Interpretation of Shakespeare's Final Plays (1965): 'It is, perhaps, inevitable that Shakespeare, so saturated with the spirit of his land, should, in such a summation of that work in The Tempest, have outlined, among much else, a myth of the national soul' (p.255). This parting comment, says McNeer, 'may provide the most profound connection of all between William Shakespeare and Murray Bail'.
