The aim of this course is to familiarise students with key concepts of postcolonial theory for the analysis of the colonial paradigm of the imperial invader.

William Shakespeare’s The Tempest (1611) uses the colonised-coloniser allegory to illustrate Prospero’s invasion of the island and the subjection of Caliban and Ariel: this colonial paradigm of the imperial invader enslaving the native inhabitants has produced many postcolonial rewritings, adaptations, appropriations, and parallels reprocessing the ideological tenet of the theme of mastery in the colonial context including Aimé Césaire’s A Tempest (1967) and David Malouf’s Blood Relations (1989). This course will closely examine Shakespeare’s The Tempest and various reinterpretations and rewritings of it by placing special emphasis on different theories on rewritings of pretexts - such as Homi Bhabha’s "mimicry", Linda Hutcheon’s "parody is repetition with difference", and Harold Bloom’s "anxieties of indebtedness" - serving as the basis for the close examination of the canonized pretext and several of its duplications, imitations, parodies, parallels, and interpellations.
