The critical essays collected in this volume reflect Greenaway’s relocation of The Tempest along the fundamentally unstable boundaries between different discursive formations.

Discourse is ambiguous and plurivocal. Poststructuralists describe the discursive event as a site of conflict, thus offering an optimistic view of the relationship between language and power. This volume is in this context an invitation to seek a new kind of relationship with the discourses we employ. The critical essays collected in it reflect and are in a sense evidence of Greenaway’s relocation of The Tempest along the fundamentally unstable boundaries between different discursive formations.



CHRISTEL STALPAERT is Professor in Theater, Performance, and Media Studies at Ghent University.
