Abstract: This thesis is concerned with the methods and author approaches of Tom Stoppard, John Updike, and Toni Morrison in their revisions of Hamlet and The Tempest. The three literary works addressed are Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, a postmodern revision of Hamlet; Updike's Gertrude and Claudius, a modernist revision of Hamlet; and Morrison's Tar Baby, a postcolonial revision of The Tempest. It concludes that Stoppard uses Hamlet as a vehicle for commentary on the position of characters in a postmodern world. In contrast, Updike seeks to explore the relationships between characters that lead to the events of Hamlet, and finally Morrison blends both Shakespeare's The Tempest and the Br'er Rabbit folk-tale 'Tar Baby' into Tar Baby.
