Alles ist Illusion – Margaret Atwoods Verneigung vor dem großen Bühnenmagier William Shakespeare Felix ist ein begnadeter Theatermacher und in der Szene ein Star. Seine Inszenierungen sind herausfordernd, aufregend, legendär. Nun will er Shakespeares „Der Sturm“ auf die Bühne bringen. Das soll ihn noch berühmter machen – und ihm helfen, eine private Tragödie zu vergessen. Doch nach einer eiskalten Intrige seiner engsten Mitarbeiter zieht sich Felix zurück, verliert sich in Erinnerungen und sinnt auf Rache. Die Gelegenheit kommt zwölf Jahre später, als ein Zufall die Verräter in seine Nähe bringt. In ihrem brillanten Roman schafft die große kanadische Autorin Margaret Atwood mit der Figur des Theaterdirektors Felix ein würdiges Pendant zu Shakespeares Prospero aus „Der Sturm“, jenes Zauberers, der als ein Selbstporträt des alternden Barden aus Stratford-on-Avon gilt.

This is a companion and successor to Women's Re-Visions of Shakespeare (1990), which the Times Higher Education Supplement lauded as a 'fascinating collection.' While the earlier volume focused on Shakespeare's cultural image, plots, and characters as reinterpreted by British and American women novelists and poets, Gross-Cultural Performances adds international scope and emphasis on the theater, race, and colonialism.

While "The Tempest" has always been one of Shakespeare's most entertaining and enchanting plays, it continues to stir up passionate debate throughout the world because of its ideas and attitudes toward race, class, political power, and colonialism. This casebook systematically examines these issues, as well as several others, from dramatic and historical perspectives and through parallel contemporary applications. Readers are first introduced to the play with a dramatic analysis that situates the work within Shakespeare's canon and within the romantic tradition. This fresh interpretation also casts much light on the use of imagery and language in setting, character, and thematic development. This casebook draws on the themes and issues introduced, and examines each one in turn with insightful original essays and primary documents. The shipwreck that sets the play in motion is examined in terms of the discovery of the new world, and the prevailing attitudes toward colonialism. A brief chronology of New World events helps situate the historical excerpts. Another intriguing topic explored in the casebook is the diverging Elizabethan views on science and religion, with a particular focus on the role of magic. Primary documents that help readers appreciate the significance of matters of sorcery and the supernatural include excerpts from Reginald Scott's 1584 "The Discovery of Witchcraft, " James I's "Demonology" (1597) as well as Marlowe's "Doctor Faustus." Other topic chapters examine political power and treachery, as well as society in terms of marriage and the court. A full chapter is also devoted to performance and interpretation of the play. The final Contemporary Applications section investigates current global concerns that parallel those in the play, and help readers appreciate Shakespeare's play in relation to the world around us. Readers are shown dramatically contrasting perspectives on colonialism in Zimbawe. The casebook concludes with a fascinating discussion of the parallel elements of fantasy in "The Tempest" and in literary works by popular contemporary writers J.R.R. Tolkien and J. K. Rowling. Understanding "The Tempest" follows the successful casebook format developed specifically for the "Literature in Context" series. Following a dramatic analysis, each topic chapter presents an important historical issue in the play, with insightful narrative essays supported by primary documents. In several chapters, brief chronologies of significant related events help readers understand the historical context of the play and its thematic concerns. As a tool for student research and classroom work, educators will appreciate the numerous topics for written and oral discussion suggested at the conclusion of each unit. Suggested readings further complement the content and research applications of the casebook.

The departmentalism of American universities has doubtless much to recommend it. It indicates that exuberance is not a sufficient sub stitute for scholarship, that, for better or for worse, every scholar today must be something of a specialist. But when any great writer and great thinker reaches out and grasps the whole of human life, the study of his work transcends specialization. And while exuberance may not replace scholarship, it may accompany it. Most of my work has been done in the history of political philosophy. I have dared to overstep departmental boundaries, because I believe that Shakespeare has something to say to political philosophy. I am not the first to express this view. Whether I express it well or badly, I shall not be the last. I want to thank Leo Strauss, my teacher. He has read the manus cript and given me the benefit of his insight and judgment. I want to thank Richard Kennington, who has taken so much time from his own work to comment meticulously and constructively on this work as on other things I have written. His help has been generous, and my appreciation is deep. I must, in particular, thank my colleague, Adolph Lowe. He has perused this study, much of it in several versions. Through long walks in Manchester, Vermont, we have discussed my work and his comments. Usually his comments have been compelling. I can regret only that I am completely unqualified to reciprocate.

King Caliban presents a fresh and admirable view of Caliban, who manages, with his acquired use of the colonial’s language, to gain his rightful kingship of the island, and Miranda’s enduring love. King Caliban is a revolutionary version of Shakespeare’s colonial Tempest, following the mock shipwreck, and the scattered travellers on the island. The play views Prospero as a missionary and a despot, who with his technological expertise, exploits the island’s natural resources of airy spirits, using a different staff, a different robe, and a different book. While engaging in personal revenge, left and right, he works his black art under the guise of bringing civilization, language, and salvation to the native he has enslaved and maligned. His pardoning of state criminals paraded as forgiveness, has a typically sham, ulterior motive -- that of making his daughter, Miranda, Queen of Naples -- an aim that is frustrated in King Caliban through Miranda’s revelation of Caliban’s inner worth, the injustice done to him, their shared childhood on the island, and his courtship of her.

How did the new developments of the Renaissance affect the way women were understood by men and the way they understood themselves? Addressing a wide range of issues across Renaissance culture--humanism, technology, science, anatomy, literacy, theater, domesticity, colonialism, and sex--this collection of essays attempts to answer that question. In doing so, the authors discover that the female subject of the Renaissance shares a surprising amount of conceptual territory with her postmodern counterpart.
