Shakespeare’s The Tempest

by Anna Pawlyn


Shakespeare strikes me as a playwright who returns again and again to the complexity of the human condition, with its ambiguities, contradictions, ans absurdities. In The Tempest you have the straight-forward age contrast between Prospero and Miranda, but also the magical island is also a place of enslavement (Caliban and Ariel), Caliban has tried to rape Miranda but makes the speech 'Be not afraid, the isle is full of noises...', showing an appreciation of beauty. Ariel is not human but can show more humanity than Prospero. These four characters form the nexus the underlies the whole play so I have entwined their images.
