But what a way to pervert an old play and make it something nothing like the original!
As far as I 'm oncerned, Cesaire is another one of those jackass political-message driven guys who decided that his greatest gift to he world could be to write crap like this to prove a point.Point made.
Thi writing was plain, the oetry was rot, the an has no sense of continuity -- if you ad n't read Shakespeare 's original, The Tempest, you 'd be more than a little lost with the transitions ( or ca I say, lack thereof) he makes.
And I 'm sick of it.If Cesaire had written something well, without this speedy and careless tone and manner of piecing words together throughout the " play, " then perhaps it ould have carried its point better!
But onl if it had been written " well, " the entire POINT was to rite play BADLY so that every single crude stereotype showed up harshly and blatantly apparent.
GEEZ it 's annoying reading works like this!
Writing badly to prove a political point?
If you ant to writ something more complex, go to Shakespeare 's actual play.
But where do you come off taking Prospero -- who in the original Tempest, did n't even take Caliban seriously when he narrowly escaped being caught and killed by him -- and making him into this blatant wuss of a character, more weak than Trinculo and Stephano are greedy, bumbling idiots?
Okay, play up Caliban 's character!
It 's usually really amazing when you com to read he same story from a completely different character 's point of view!
I love stories like that!
In he original he was more an ALLY to Prospero, standing on the same ground as him, than a slave!
I hate it when people mess with characters that I love! So I ranted there for a bit.
But my biggest peeve was that I shoul n't enjoy the story, or the characters, because all I kept getting out of it was the POLITICS.
D8< ESPECIALLY when I'm reading someone's "MESSAGE" at the price of the ruin of an entertaining story and some pretty dang fun characters too!
But it 's substandard writing, and I 'm not ven talking message-wise.
