Margaret Atwood’s newest novel Hag-Seed follows the tumultuous plot line of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Although rewrites of Shakespearean dramas can be lackluster at best and warmed-over at worst, Atwood’s novel should not be underestimated.  The vivid, engrossing prose that made her famous comes to life once again in Hag-Seed. 

Readers follow the rise and fall of Felix–widow, a father of one young girl, and director at a local theater. Felix was at the height of his directorial career. He put on provocative shows. He reimagined plays in new and engaging ways. He gained popularity and esteem in the area. He poured his heart and soul into the work he accomplished. That is, until tragedy struck his life and he began spiraling into apathy.

Felix lost everything–including his esteemed position. As a recluse, he begins to plot his revenge. Through a series of unpredictable events, Felix finds himself in the most unlikely of playhouses.

Atwood’s story of vengeance, retribution, and rebirth brings The Tempest into the cutthroat culture of modern dramatic theater.
