It is easy to agree with Greenaway that we are in the midst of a new “Gutenberg revolution” in communication technologies. But we are in the early phases of that revolution, when it is also easy to overestimate the potential of new tools and to misjudge their power to liberate or to enhance creativity. Perhaps this is the reason that, despite the technological virtuosity of Prospero’s Books, many of the boldest features of Greenaway’s interesting and contemporary interpretation of The Tempest appear, it sounds strange to say, “only in the book.”
