  Article:   CALIBAN: IDEOLOGY MEETS IRONY.

Authors:  ADRIAN PAPAHAGI.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Caliban: Ideology Meets Irony. The essay argues that Caliban works as an ironic counterpart of every character in The Tempest. Through his ambiguous and complex nature, the monster frustrates the fashionable ideological readings, which invariably reduce him to an illustration of the plight of natives at the dawn of colonialism.

Keywords: Shakespeare; The Tempest; Caliban; Prospero; irony; ambiguity; against postcolonialism.
