The Tempest

6 months ago at Dec 31 2:19
“We are such stuff as dreams are made on/And our little life is rounded with a sleep.”   Julie Taymor’s reading of The Tempest is heavy on the dreams, but light on the second half’s understanding of eventual surrender and quietness. The Tempest is an elegy and a humbling, and the play is one of the richest in both characters and visuals in William Shakespeare’s canon. It’s a damn sh... read more

““We are such stuff as dreams are made on/And our little life is rounded with a sleep.”   Julie Taymor’s reading of The Tempest is heavy on the dreams, but light on the second half’s understanding of eventual surrender and quietness. The Tempest is an elegy and a humbling, and the play is one of the richest in both characters and visuals in William Shakespeare’s canon. It’s a damn shame then that Taymor took so much of it literal, fails to modulate her admittedly fervent imagination, and seems completely at odds with the poetic acceptance of mortality.   Taymor’s The Tempest doesn’t just fail to go quietly into the dying light, it doesn’t just rage against it, but goes completely unhinged at every opportunity.
