I recently read Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood. It is one of a series of contemporary takes by established authors of Shakespearean plays proposed and organized by Hogarth. Hag-Seed is a re-telling of The Tempest.
There's no way at all that I feel in any way qualified to do a review of a Margaret Atwood novel. I only want to say that I loved Hag-Seed: it's a literary adventure with a play folded within a play within a play - so complex, so clever, so much fun.
I would say that for a prospective reader it might helpful to have some knowledge of The Tempest. Since I last read The Tempest in high school more than 50 years ago the details were a bit sketchy in my mind and I was grateful to notice that MA gives a brief synopsis of the play at the back of the book. Now I have an urge to re-read the original. This might lead to an endless loop of reading/re-reading The Tempest and Hag-Seed. 😊
