    The Misunderstood Message of Aime Cesaire's A Tempest A Tempest, by Aime Cesaire, has been the center of controversy for over twenty years now.  The argument is not concerning whether the play has substance, or whether its themes are too racy; the criticism is about its parallel to another work.  The work in question is that of The Tempest by William Shakespeare.  Cesaire has been bluntly accused of mirroring, misrepresenting, and misinterpreting Shakespeare's last play.  I challenge these critics

    Power in Shakespeare's Tempest and Césaire's A Tempest Power is defined as the possession of control, authority, or influence over others.  In William Shakespeare's The Tempest and Aimé Césaire's A Tempest, power is a key element in the relationships that exist between characters.  As Caliban and Prospero battle for dominance over the island, Miranda finds that she holds a certain power of her own as she matures from an innocent youth to a sensual, strong-headed young woman.  Seen by some as

    Colonial Language in Shakespeare's The Tempest and Aime Cesaire's A Tempest Language and literature are the most subtle and seductive tools of domination. They gradually shape thoughts and attitudes on an almost subconscious level.

    natives in America (Hollander and Kermode 446). These two different viewpoints in Shakespeare's play are represented by the characters Ariel, who represents the compliant, friendly native, and Caliban, who represents the native as a wild savage.

    point, one way to rebel against colonization is to warp the tools of the colonizer to support the cause of liberation. The strategy seems to be especially popular in drama, where there are two stellar examples of postcolonial literature, A Tempest by Aime Cesaire and M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang. These plays are rewritten versions of Shakespeare's The Tempest and Puccini's opera, Madame Butterfly, respectively, and retain the same characters and basic plot elements. Both Shakespeare's and Puccini's
