In Hag Seed (2016), Margaret Atwood explores the life of theatre director Felix who, betrayed by a trusted colleague, is exiled from his position in society. Having suffered in isolation, Felix is granted the position of teaching in a prison literacy program, and begins to plot his revenge against those who betrayed him. Throughout the novel, Atwood manages to subtly draw parallelisms between Felix’s predicament and the life of Prospero, the wronged Duke of Milan, who has also suffered exile on a remote island in William Shakespeare’s masterful The Tempest. Both Atwood’s and Shakespeare’s works will enter a dialogic relationship in which the main themes of loss, revenge, imprisonment (literal and metaphorical) will be resignified.
