A Tempest [Paperback] Aime Cesaire (Author), Richard Miller (Translator). Softcover in NM condition but has highlighting and writing. A troupe of black actors perform their own Tempest. The play explores the political and cultural conflicts opposing the white master, Prospero, his mulatto servant, Ariel, and the black slave Caliban. Csaire's rich and insightful adaptation draws on contemporary Caribbean society, the Afro-American experience and African mythology to raise questions about colonialism, racism, and their lasting effects. From Martinique. 3 acts. 4f, 14m. Aime Cesaire wrote this variation of The Tempest from an Afrocentric, Carribean perspective. It is a magnificent achievement. Caliban becomes the hero as Cesaire advances a variety of different ideas. By changing the perspective, A Tempest explores a lot of issues like rascism and colonialism. Prospero becomes the Oppressor and Caliban is the Native wrongly robbed of his ancestral right to rule his own land. Ariel is reduced to something of an Uncle Tom. To his credit, Cesaire never allows any character in the play become completely unsympathetic. That is a grand feat. It is consistent with Shakespeare who also grants humanity even to Caliban. I found this adaptation to be brilliant. Cesaire follows the theme of The Tempest all the while making it his own work. I was even compelled to reread The Tempest just for comparative purposes. The reread of The Tempest served only to heighten my appreciation for A Tempest. This is work that should be read by anyone interested in the theatre.highlighting and writing0-913745-40-5
