Who Should Read “The Tempest”? And Why?
Shakespeare was a great artist whose greatness was not in the number of plays he wrote, but in his ability to analyze the time he lived in and to write about it. He recognized that something was terribly wrong with the world- the world which possessed no permanent set of values- and he decided to write a number of plays in order to make people see and understand the horror of all the social evils. Like a true critic of his time, he closely observed the ways of the people and then he placed a severe criticism on everything he did not approve of. In other words, he did everything a true artist could do to cleanse our doors of perception. King Lear is a story of an elderly king, who foolishly disregards truth, embraces falsity of words and gives away his kingdom to those who are ready to flatter him. Being old enough, king Lear wants to retire and to share his kingdom among his daughters.

The part of the history of the world that is repeated is the colonisation of the 'New World'. It is performed in the sense that almost every event happening on the island is either artificially created or artificially controlled by its ruler Prospero. It is, however, not appropriate to speak of the history of the world, but it gives an insight into the mechanisms of colonial rule, The Tempest represents aspects of colonial power and subjugation, being the epitome of an era. It is noteworthy that this play was perceived as light entertainment in earlier times; in the new light of colonial discourse it is perceived as a play about colonialism, subjugation and tyranny as well. It is especially interesting to note that Shakespeare apparently had a lot of insight into colonial matters, Brown speaks of 'Shakespeare's patronal relations with members of the Virginian Company' 48 ; maybe Shakespeare tried to use The Tempest as criticism of colonial rule.

Earth does not only embody a pastoral idea. But the wistful, feminist, retrospectively oriented tone is so remarkably plain,all through this brilliantly mellow theater piece.
