Cynthia, Raquel, Antonio, Caitlin, Journei

Character Analysis

Stephanio is very determined when it comes to overthrowing Prospero.

Stephanio states "Monster, I will kill this man. His daughter and I will be king and queen—save our graces!—and Trinculo and thyself shall be viceroys.—Dost thou like the plot, Trinculo? (Shakespeare 3.2)"

Trinculo is very passive aggressive he agrees to do things for his master but also talks back a lot.

Trinculo states "I did not give the lie, out o' your wit and bearing too? A pox o' your bottle! this can sack and drinking do. A murrain on your monster and the devil takes your fingers!(Shakespeare 3.2)"

Caliban is very harsh when it comes to overthrowing Prospero he is very violent.

Caliban states "Why, as I told thee, ’tis a custom with him,I' th' afternoon to sleep. There thou mayst brain him,Having first seized his books; or with a log Batter his skull; or paunch him with a stake;Or cut his weasand with thy knife. Remember First to possess his books, for without them He’s but a sot, as I am, nor hath notOne spirit to command. They all do hate him As rootedly as I. Burn but his books.He has brave utensils—for so he calls them—Which when he has a house, he’ll deck withal.And that most deeply to consider is The beauty of his daughter. He himselfCalls her a nonpareil. I never saw a woman, But only Sycorax my dam and she.But she as far surpasseth Sycorax

As great’st does least. (Shakespeare 3.2)"


Often people who are betrayed or hurt by someone seek revenge in order to be able to forgive or get past the issue.

"I say, by sorcery he got this isle.

From me he got it. If thy greatness will

Revenge it on him—for I know thou darest,

But this thing dare not—" (Shakespeare 3.2).
