Margaret Atwood's retelling of The Tempest—part of the new Hogarth Shakespeare series—moves the story to contemporary southern Ontario.

After his production of The Tempest is ruined by an act of treachery, Felix, the artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival, ends up exiled to a backwoods hovel—where he's haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda—for twelve years. Then, he begins teaching a theater class at a nearby prison, seeing an opportunity for revenge at last…

“If The Tempest is Shakespeare’s most wondrous play, Atwood’s Hag-Seed is, in every way, a wonder. . . .The Bard, I think, would approve. . . . For readers familiar with The Tempest, Atwood’s deeply insightful and complex engagement with the play will delight and awe. For Atwood fans new and old, Hag-Seed is sheer delight—wonderful in every sense.”
—Mona Awad, The Globe and Mail
