Críticas:

Atwood s canny remix offers multiple pleasures [marvel] at the ways she changes, updates, and parallels the play s magic, grief, vengeance and showmanship. Publishers Weekly, starred review
Inventive, heartfelt, and swiftly rendered. Library Journal, starred review"

What makes the book thrilling, and hugely pleasurable, is how closely Atwood hews to Shakespeare even as she casts her own potent charms, rap-composition included Part Shakespeare, part Atwood, Hag-Seed is a most delicate monster and that s delicate in the 17th-century sense. It s delightful. The Boston Globe
Atwood has designed an ingenious doubling of the plot of The Tempest: Felix, the usurped director, finds himself cast by circumstances as a real-life version of Prospero, the usurped Duke. If you know the play well, these echoes grow stronger when Felix decides to exact his revenge by conjuring up a new version of The Tempest designed to overwhelm his enemies. The Washington Post
A funny and heartwarming tale of revenge and redemption, this latest release in the Hogarth Shakespeare project, whose aim it is to retell Shakespeare's most beloved works through the works of bestselling authors like Anne Tyler and Gillian Flynn, Hag-Seedis a remarkable contribution to the canon. Bustle

Inventive, heartfelt, and swiftly rendered. Library Journal, starred review
"A triumph [...] The book illuminates the breadth and depth of the whole play. The troupe's workshops on it fizz with perception as Atwood transmits the pleasurable buzz of exploring a literary masterpiece. There won't be a more glowing tribute to Shakespeare in his 400th anniversary year." Peter Kemp, Sunday Times
"The novel shines a thrilling new light onThe Tempest's themes of revenge and forgiveness [...] as well as making a strong case for art's ability to "set you free" by helping you understand yourself." Helen Brown, Sunday Telegraph
"Surpassingly brilliant [...] without question the cleverest "neo-Shakespearean novel" I have ever read [...] the learning and the critical analysis are worn exceptionally lightly, always subordinated to wit, invention, characterisation and slick twists of plot [...] wonderfully ingenious." Jonathan Bate, The Times

you don't need to be a Shakespeare geek like me to enjoy Hag-Seed; it's a good story, and will introduce you to the play gently, with Felix himself as your guide. NPR Books
Hag-Seed is a treat. It s a beautifully constructed adaptation, one that stands on its own but is even richer when read against its source and can, in turn, enrich its source material. It s playful and thoughtful, and it singlehandedly makes a good argument for the value of adapting Shakespeare. Vox
Atwood has tremendous fun with Hag-Seed. Those who know the play will especially enjoy her artful treatment of its more poignant storylines. But even someone unfamiliar with Shakespeare will be entertained by this compelling tale of enchantment and second chances, and the rough magic it so delightfully embodies. -Bookpage

Readers looking for Atwood s wit and mastery of language will find it at work here Atwood more than does justice to the Bard. -Chicago Review of Books
One needn t be a Shakespeare fan in order to love this retelling of The Tempest This book is funny and wonderful. Highly recommended for Shakespeare lovers and those seeking revenge. -Seattle Book Review

"A marvel of gorgeous yet economical prose, in the service of a story that's utterly heartbreaking yet pierced by humor, with a plot that retains considerable subtlety even as the original's back story falls neatly into place."--New York Times Book Review

Part Shakespeare, part Atwood, "Hag-Seed" is a most delicate monster -- and that's "delicate" in the 17th-century sense. It's delightful."--The Boston Globe

"Atwood brilliantly pulls off the caper in a short novel that should be assigned to high school students as a hilarious riff on one of Shakespeare's more mystifying plays. It's much more than a retelling; it's an ingenious analysis and critique rolled into one."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Margaret Atwood's modern retelling is an entertaining romp of revenge, redemption."--Minneapolis Star-Tribune
