Topic and abstract:

Marvellous Repossessions: The Tempest, Globalization, and the Waking
Dream of Paradise

Like Columbus’s voyage to the western future, which was in fantasy a
voyage back to an oriental past, The Tempest is driven by a dream in
which progress is subtended by return, tomorrow by yesterday,
chronology by contretemps. The shimmering object of this dream is
arguably what has made the play so enduringly seductive, even to those
who have attempted to read the play against the grain of its
supposedly proto-colonialist logic. But the dream is a perilously
bottomless one: even when we think we have woken from it we
potentially still dream of recovering the past in the name of moving
forward to the future. Let us give the temporally bivalent object of
this dream a local habitation and a name: Paradise.
