act 5 scene 1 and epilogue

Act 5, Scene 1 and Epilogue

1. He wants to have mercy on those who

have wronged him in the past. He

acknowledges to Ariel that he is furious

with Antonio and the others who have

wronged him, but that “…the rarer

action is in virtue than in vengeance.”

He thanks Gonzalo; he warns Antonio

and Sebastian that he could reveal

them as traitors but will not, for now; he

tells Antonio that he forgives him but

expects his dukedom back; he shows Alonso

his son is alive and playing chess with Miranda.

2. With Ariel’s help he has created the

storm, made spirits appear in different

guises-banquet servers, goddesses,

and dogs-and he has shut out the sun,

called forth the winds, uprooted trees,

and opened graves.

3. Shakespeare was ready to give up his

“magic”-stop writing.

4. Only Alonso seems truly sorry.

5. Maybe he was making a religious

statement-to err is human, to forgive

divine.

6. When he first sees Ferdinand playing

chess with Miranda, he is almost afraid

to believe his eyes. Then he says that

he is a “glad father” and tells his

by-then-kneeling son to rise.

7. He sees how fine Prospero looks in his

royal clothes and worries that he will be

“pinched to death” by an angry Prospero.

Caliban realizes he was a fool to worship a

drunkard like Stephano.

8. Alonso realizes what he did to Prospero

in the past was wrong and Prospero is

perhaps for compassionate than he was

in the beginning.

9. He asks the audience to clap. Like

Ariel and Caliban who wanted to be

released from their slavery, Prospero

wants others to “release me from my

bands.”
