The Tempest is my favorite Shakespeare play and Atwood is a genius I especially loved her re telling of The Odyssey in The Penelopiad Naturally I had to read this novel Although it didn t uite meet my high expectations it falls short of brilliant it is entertaining and wittyUnlike some books in this Hogarth series Hag Seed is on the nose with its Shakespeare infusion An acclaimed stage director is reduced to leading a cast of prison inmates in a production of The Tempest Life imitates art of course and the adventure has an uncanny resemblance to the playIt s a tried and true formula that Atwood does better than most but I did not get the sense she had obsessed over the Tempest uite as much as she did The Odyssey for the Penelopiad It reads like the old Wishbone episode of the Tempest where the PBS dog weaves classic literature into the lives of teenagers Atwood s weaving is often smart but also generally unremarkable Reading the novel as an entertainment piece like Wishbone and not astute literary commentary is the best way to enjoy the experienceOVERALL Flaws aside Hag Seed is great I probably won t put it on my top shelf of Shakespeare related literature but the characters are compelling and when the revels end I did get sad as if departing from dear friends Thespians will recognize this emotion from how it feels to strike the set The jail metaphor tying in to the isolation of island life is fitting and poignant Whether you have a PhD in Shakespeare or are just a book nerd there s a bit of jolly for everyone
