resolutions
Resolutions
  • Prospero’s dukedom is returned
  • Forgives Alonso and Caliban
  • Ferdinand and Miranda are betrothed
prospero
Prospero
  • “The rarer action is in virtue than in vengeance; they being penitent, the sole drift a my purpose not extend a frown further.”
  • “I’ll break my staff, bury it certain fathoms in the earth, and deeper than ever did plummet sound, I’ll drown my books.”
  • “where every third thought will be of my grave”
real time
Real Time
  • The events of the play take place in “three hours”
  • It is the only Shakespeare play that takes place in real-time. All other plays take place over days or weeks.
  • The three hours could be another sign that the play is about Shakespeare’s experience as a writer, as three hours is the typical length of a play.
fortunate fall
Fortunate Fall
  • Common Renaissance theme
  • It is the belief that man’s fall from Eden and the subsequent suffering led to the glory that has been Christian Redemption.
  • Notice the number of people that are redeemed and forgiven in the final act
  • Alonso, Caliban, Prospero
miranda and ferdinand
Miranda and Ferdinand
  • What the symbolism behind the two playing chess when revealed?
  • Like Romeo and Juliet the children are what will complete the resolution between their parents
  • Notice Miranda’s optimism at seeing more people “O brave new world that has such people as these.”- unscathed by past corruptions and betrayal
caliban
Caliban
  • “demi-devil”
  • “this thing of darkness”
  • “He is as disproportioned in his manners as in his shape.”
  • Caliban- “What thrice-doubled ass was I, to take this drunkard for a god and worship this dull fool.” – some evidence to Caliban being Prospero’s baser instinct as he has been so easily fooled and led by alcohol.
  • Caliban is still treated poorly at the end of the story. Is it because his crime is unforgivable or that Prospero has an unjust hatred of him.
the epilogue
The Epilogue
  • It is debatable whether or not Shakespeare wrote the epilogue as it not very good poetry.
  • If he did write it, it could be interpreted as Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage.
  • “But release me from my bands with the help of your good hands.”

Can Antonio be forgiven?

  • He is the only major character whom is given only one line in the final act of the play.
  • Why forgive everyone but him?
