You may also want to look at Eric Cheyfitz's _The Poetics of Imperialism:
Translation and Colonization from The Tempest to Tarzan_.

In the light of recent discussions of the colonialist  interpretation of *The
Tempest*, I thought people might be  interested in Robert Hayden's use of this
in the poem "Middle  Passage."  Echoing the art/magic motif of the play, Hayden
depicts  slave traders as evil magicians/bad artists whose magic turns
everything into its horrifying opposite.  Fred Fetrow's article,  "`Middle
Passage': Robert Hayden's Anti-Epic," in the June 1979  issue of *CLA Journal*,
might also be of interest.
