Shakespeare’s Tempest Over Time
The first play to appear in Shakespeare’s Folio, but thought to be one of his final plays written, “The Tempest” has become a touchstone in Shakespeare Studies for discussions about genre, authorship, feminism, and post-colonial theory. Yet, not long after its first performances, Shakespeare’s play vanished from the stage, appearing only in adapted forms for the next 170 years. Each meeting, we’ll discuss an iteration of “The Tempest,” beginning with Shakespeare’s play up through Margaret Atwood’s 2016 novel “HagSeed” in order to consider how approaches to the play have shifted over time. Becky Hixon is a PhD Candidate in English Language & Literature at the University of Michigan where she studies Shakespeare, adaptation, and gender and sexuality studies.
