Hag-Seed is a Margaret Atwood retelling of Shakespeare’s the Tempest and is part of a book series called the Hogarth Shakespeare project where famous writers are paired with a retelling of a play. After this one—I’m looking forward to picking up more.
There are many plays within this book about a play. The main character, Felix is the Director of a Theater Festival who is betrayed by his assistant. Felix goes off to live in the woods to plot his revenge which comes through a theater program at a nearby prison.
This is a fun read—Atwood is at the top of her craft weaving in stories and themes on top of one another.

The more I think about this book the more I’m unsatisfied with it, unfortunately.

I guess I think that if you want to tell a story about mourning and isolation and imagination, you can have a Prospero-analog be your protagonist. This is the way in which I think Hag-Seed works: the stuff with Felix and his invisible Miranda.

But if you want to examine race and gender and power and incarceration, which Atwood is also trying to do in this novel, you shouldn’t have a white male Prospero protagonist who is unambiguously morally right and a great guy, like Felix. Because then you’re not really re-examining the Tempest, no matter how much you talk in-universe about alternate and avant-garde interpretations. ( )

Good fun,also very powerful passages on grief. ( )

This was a delightful and charming retelling of The Tempest. I find it hard to separate my feelings about this novel from my feeling about the play, which is my favorite Shakespeare play and has one of my favorite Shakespearean characters, Caliban. ( )

If you are familiar with the concept of "mise en abyme", you will easily recognize it at work here. It got a bit tedious at the end, and a bit to obvious, still an enjoyable read. ( )

While “Hag-Seed” is a book that’s great for a quick read, it doesn’t deliver the punches that the premises promise, making it an all-around mediocre book.

So viel ist gewiss, dass jemand, der Rache brütet,
seine eigenen Wunden frisch erhält, die sonst heilen und verharschen würden.

Obwohl es auf der Bühne nette Menschen gibt, sind etliche darunter, die einem die Haare zu Berge stehen lassen würden.

Over the gulf ...

"But Shakespeare is such a classic."
Too good for them, was what she meant. "He had no intention of being a classic!" Felix said, adding a tinge of indignation to his voice. "For him, the classics were, well, Virgil, and Herodotus, and...He was simply an actor-manager trying to keep afloat. It's only due to luck that we have Shakespeare at all! Nothing was even published till he was gone!"
The prisoners loved the fight scenes. Why not? Everyone loved the fight scenes: that's why Shakespeare put them in.
A cruise ship filled with old people, people even older than himself, snoozing in deck chairs and doing line-dancing—that was his idea, if not of hell exactly, then at least of limbo. A state of suspension somewhere on the road to death. But on second thought, what did he have to lose? The road to death is after all the road he's on, so why not eat well during the journey?
