[Plate III.-Plate VI.] The tempest
PLATE III. The Tern/es 1. Act I. Scene IL THE ISLAND. BEFORE PROSPERO'S CELL. The Shipwreck as related by ARIEL. Arid.- Not a soul But felt a fever of the mad and play'd Some tricks of desperation. All but mariners Plunged in the foaming brine and quit the vessel, Then all afire with me: the king's son, Ferdinand, With hair up-staring, -then like reeds, not hair,- Was the first man that leap'd; cried, 'Hell is empty, And all the devils are here.' Painted by GEORGE ROMNEY.
