Analysis of Emily St. John Mandel's novel Station Eleven and its Shakespearean antecedents, particularly The Tempest. This article reads Mandel's character Miranda Carroll as an artist-figure comparable to Prospero. I argue that Miranda is the embedded author of the entire Station Eleven--both pre- and post-pandemic--in ways that mirror themes of revenge and forgiveness in The Tempest.
