Tempest, A

Tempest, A

Tempest, A
a witty and fiercely anti-colonialist revision of Shakespeare's island fling, Cesaire turns it into a brilliant assertion of black identity. Prospero is an exiled tyrant, while Caliban becomes a mutinous figure who has clear affinities with Malcolm X. Cesaire, major poet, Martinique politician, and coiner of the term "negritude" has presented not simply a new reading of The Tempest but an original play of astonishing power.
