Abel had Cain. King Hamlet had Claudius. Mufasa had Scar. In Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Prospero, too, has a brother who betrays him, stealing his dukedom and banishing him to a desert island with his young daughter, Miranda. Years later, Prospero is poised to take his revenge and regain his rightful position in society, through magic and the help of the cunning spirit, Ariel. Thought to be one of the last plays that Shakespeare wrote alone, The Tempest mixes grand drama with low comedy in a skillfully complex exploration of science and the supernatural, mastery and servitude, young love and old grudges.
