At one point, when his director-friend, Jean-Marie Serreau, asked Césaire if he really wanted to undertake the adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Césaire apparently said: “Ok, but I want to do it my way. When I’d finished the job, I realized that there wasn’t much Shakespeare left.”
In this post, please pick a specific character or production element or plot change (for example, the introduction of a new character, the ending of the play, a new scene, a change in a character’s attitude) in Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Césaire’s A Tempest and use it to make an argument about how much Shakespeare there is left in Césaire. You must use 2 quotes from each play (4 quotes in all!).

By now you should have watched “Shakespeare behind Bars” — a documentary film about a production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest by inmates at the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in Kentucky. The film examines how a “classic” travels into a very different world than the ones we have been considering so far in our class.
Please write a post that uses some of the themes and issues we have addressed in our discussions of Shakespeare’s and Césaire’s plays – authority, race, power and the state, the power of art, violence – to discuss the way that Shakespeare’s play travels into the society that is the prison.
Link to the documentary, I will include the account info in the file below
