The tempest, two questions, 150 + 150-200 words, 3 day left
Divide it into two documents to complete. Question1 and Question are two separate assignments
Q1 (only read Shakespeare_The Tempest and reading question)
Please write 150 words on the relationship between two or more of the various usurpation plots in the play (Antonio usurping Prospero in Milan, Sebastian and Antonio usurping Alonso on the island, Caliban, Trinculo, and Stefano usurping Prospero on the island).
What is the relationship between the structural instability of politics in Milan and the structural instability of politics on the island? Review the “Reading Questions” for The Tempest, especially the parts about who was king of England at the time Shakespeare wrote the play, and comment on what you think the original audience(s) might have thought about all the emphasis on the wobbly politics of power in the play. Your post must contain at least 2 quotes from the play to support your claims.
Please note that you must include your quotes at the beginning and that they do not count as part of the word limit.
Q2( read Shakespeare_The Tempest and Cesaire, Aime_A Tempest)
150-200 words max
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 the 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!).
