Summary
"The Tempest and New World-Utopian politics is a post-1989 interpretation of the play that reaches new conclusions about how to teach about its setting, Caliban, and its many still neglected New World dimensions. Through close textual readings, the book problematizes how an unstable and aporic setting at the same time enables and invalidates recent discursively over-invested Virginian interpretations and refutes the by now institutionally orthodox view that Caliban is a character of credible New World origin. The book calls for a utopian understanding of the play's vacuum of power and interprets pastoral, anarchic, and Americanist tensions through a presentist, post-1989 lens"--
