Το παιδί της τρικυμίας kindle ¼ Paperback ó margaret atwood ó Ο Φίλιξ είναι καλλιτεχνικός διευθυντής του θεατρικού φεστιβάλ Makeshiweg και τα καταφέρνει περίφημα Οι παραγωγές του ι επιτέλους στο πλαίσιο ενός θεατρικού προγράμματος σε μια κοντινή φυλακή Εδώ ο Φίλιξ και οι κρατούμενοι ηθοποιοί του θα ανεβάσουν την Τρικυμία του και θα παγιδεύσουν τους προδότες που τον κατέστρεψαν Μαγεία Μα θα καταφέρει να αποκαταστήσει τον Φίλιξ την ώρα που οι εχθροί του καταστρέφοντα? Put bluntly Atwood's last two endevors have sa huckedYeah this one's included here's why the premise of The Tempest Retold is masterful with the prison standing in for the island and the master portrayed as a theater director the temptation to bring a 400 year work from the best English writer of all time into our contemporary one deserves much applause And follow through Instead we get almost exactly where we thought that all of this was going this despite never having read this Shakespearean play myself the prisoners that make up the players have no individual personalities and sound rather too articulate Where's the grit? There's zero plot involving what the prisoners would REALLY act like given the chance to express themselves in art Hag Seed has all the readability and high ish literature you will ever likely find in a Margaret Atwood novel But like The Heart Goes Last it seems she just rushed the ending The plot ends prematurely the rest is this lit appreciation We get many points of view about what the whole play means after the plot of the novel itself expires Like what? I do not care to read transcripts from a creative writingliterature class in a work of fiction Not in this format the expected masterpiece that finally lets you down

reader Ô Το παιδί της τρικυμίας ↠ Margaret Atwood

Ο Φίλιξ είναι καλλιτεχνικός διευθυντής του θεατρικού φεστιβάλ Makeshiweg και τα καταφέρνει περίφημα Οι παραγωγές του έχουν σαστίσει τα πλήθη Τώρα ετοιμάζει μια παράσταση της Τρικυμίας που δεν έχει προηγούμενο δεν πρόκειται απλώς να τονώσει τη φήμη του θα γιατρέψει και συναισθηματικά τραύματα Ή Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel From Beginning to BookendFelix is the Artistic Director of the Makeshiwig Theater Festival and a theatrical visionary whose outlandish re imaginings of Shakespeare's plays have both baffled and awed critics On the cusp of staging The Tempest a play Felix intends to make his greatest work yet an act of unforeseen treachery relieves him of his position and strips him of professional dignity Twelve years later after a need to avenge himself has metastasized in Felix's heart revenge arrives in the form of a teaching position at a nearby prison Fletcher County Correctional Institute where Felix will at last stage The Tempest and ensnare the traitorous men who were the cause of his ruin How he has fallen How deflated How reduced Cobbling together this bare existence living in a hovel ignored in a forgotten backwater; whereas Tony that self promoting posturing little shit gallivants about with the grandees and swills champagne and gobbles caviar and larks' tongues and suckling pigs and attends galas and basks in the adoration of his entourage his flunkies his toadies Once the toadies of Felix It rankles It festers It brews vengefulness Hag Seed is a cleverly constructed satirical retelling of The Tempest executed through Felix and his band of convicted con men staging their own fanciful and strange retelling of the play This overlap in storytelling succeeds in educating readers who have never seen the play delighting those familiar with Shakespeare's tale of castaways stranded on a remote island plotting and scheming against one another and being an on the nose representation of The Tempest But The Tempest is a play about a man producing a play one that's come out of his own head his 'fancies' so maybe the fault for which he needs to be pardoned is the play itself Felix's obsession with recreating The Tempest is about than just revenge His intentions are personal and rooted in grief which adds depth to his motives and enriches the narrative Felix wishes to memorialize his deceased daughter Miranda whose namesake is derived from the play This Tempest would be brilliant the best thing he'd ever done He had been he realizes now unhealthily obsessed with it It was like the Taj Mahal an ornate mausoleum raised in honor of a beloved shade or a priceless jeweled casket containing ashes But than that because inside the charmed bubble he was creating his Miranda would live again The prison is the island where Felix will don his cape and conjure a scheme designed to raise him above his enemies to position himself as ruler and deity implementing justice and allotting punishment where reprimand is due He never imagined he would educate cons in the slammer but the inglorious prison is nevertheless where his scheme must unfold There's a click The door unlocks and he walks into the warmth and that uniue smell Unfresh paint faint mildew unloved food eaten in boredom and the smell of dejection the shoulders slumping down the head bowed the body caving in upon itself A meager smell Onion farts Cold naked feet damp towels motherless years The smell of misery lying over everyone within like an enchantment After a flashbang intro and an amusing romp through Felix's machinations the book reaches a satiating conclusion and offers a memorable closing line with meaning that resonates Good for a laugh enchanting for its superlative writing surprisingly tenderhearted and sublimely constructed Hag Seed is a ravishing literary parody
