This picture shows Miranda sleeping while Ariel begs Prospero for forgiveness because he asked for his freedom without completing the last task Prospero had for him. Because of that Prospero thought he was ungrateful for what he done for him and got mad.

Theme Analysis By: Datianna

- It is right to manipulate others to get our way or wishes.

  • Ariel states "And as thou badest me, in troops I have dispered them 'bout the isle."

- People in power have the right to use it in any way they see fit.

  • Prospero states "If thou more murmur'st, I will rend an oak and peg thee in his knotty entrails till thou has howled away twelve winters."
