Abstract

“’You weren’t acting like you’: Holden as Caliban in Caliban’s War” focuses on the connection between Caliban in Shakespeare’s The Tempest and James Holden in Corey’s Caliban’s War. Both characters may be viewed as highlighting issues of monstrousness in the texts through the lens of loss and the Other, as framed by Jacques Lacan’s Mirror Stage. By grappling with difficult issues of morality, the characters may be seen as coming to a sense of self and reclamation of identity and humanity at the end of the texts.
