Embe rated it did not like it Recommends it for: People who enjoy re-writes of originals. Recommended to N. This was a total waste of my time. But what a way to pervert an old play and make it something nothing like the original!
I get it. Point made. Again: got it, Cesaire. It was just a mess. An ugly piece of writing in quality, not even based on the subject. If Cesaire had written something well, without this speedy and careless tone and manner of piecing words together throughout the "play," then perhaps it would have carried its point better! Making fun of The Tempest? I can live with that. Writing badly to prove a political point?
Just shorts out whatever patience I have. Why bother? You want to emphasize how stupid Stephano and Trinculo are even more? Fine, go ahead. They were like that before. And on top of that! Make him the hero of this story! I love stories like that! He was a GOOD hero character. He contradicted himself a couple of times.
He refused to take into consideration any other path but his own. And, what the heck, really? Do we have to bring in being a "black slave" into this? Drop it. Also: Ariel. In the original, he was a character that was distant from everyone, with a conscience and a brain; he did what he had to do for himself, and he was mysterious, cool, collected!
Sure he obeyed Prospero because of his indebtedness to him! I hate it when people mess with characters that I love! So I ranted there for a bit. You want to give it a go? Take a whirl. And on that note, review is finished! On to something better I hope!
Cesaire, a recognized poet, essayist, playwright, and politician, was born in Martinique in and, until his death in , had been instrumental in voicing post-colonial concerns. In the s, he, along with Leopold Senghor and Leon Gontian Damas, developed the negritude movement which endeavored to question French colonial rule and restore the cultural identity of blacks in the African diaspora. A Tempest is the third play in a trilogy aimed at advancing the tenets of the negritude movement. The island, however, is somewhere in the Caribbean, Ariel is a mulatto slave rather than a sprite, and Caliban is a black slave.
