This study shows how the "rewriting" of Shakespeare's plays serves as an interpretative grid through which to read three movements - postcoloniality, postpatriarchy and postmodernism - via the "Tempest" characters of Caliban, Miranda/Sycorax and Prospero, as they vie for the ownership of meaning at the end of the 20th century. Covering texts in three languages, from four continents and since 1960, this study imaginatively explores the collapse of Empire and the emergence of independent nation states, the advent of feminism and other sexual liberation movements that challenged patriarchy, and the varied critiques of representation that make up the "postmodern condition".
