This issue of Caliban, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the journal born in 1964, studies the character of Caliban in The Tempest, through the text and its stagings. It also considers the implications of its reworkings and reappropriations in African, Native American or Caribbean cultures, from the theatre to poetry and from visual arts —painting, cinema, comics—to fiction, nature literature and fantasy. From Shakespeare’s theatre to experimental modern poetry and to the literatures of Africa and America, Caliban lives and is metamorphosed in the literatures of the world. Through texts and pictures, this issue suggests that Caliban, the slave, keeps on breaking his chains so that his voice may be heard—a voice that some try to muffle and others would like to share.
