...Tempest Aime Cesaire mixes politics and poetics to produce A Tempest. A Tempest, by Aime Cesaire is not merely a remake of Shakespeare's The Tempest, because Cesaire remakes the play to support a political agenda against imperialism and for negritude. Negritude is an awareness by black people of their distinctive cultural heritage. Cesaire has modeled the characters in A Tempest to be representations of political situations and ideals. The character, Prospero represents imperialism, Ariel can be seen to represent hope that freedom will come through non-violent collaboration with the captor. Caliban represents negritude. Decolonization is at the heart of A Tempest. Caliban struggles... ...

The use of motifs, therefore, help an individual easily make out the otherwise complex meanings in literary works.

The story delves into a mystical world of magic that involves manipulations in order to as a way of making other characters acquiesce to Prospero’s needs.
