Subject:        Re: Abhorred Slave

It seems pretty unanimous among modern editors that the "Abhorred slave"
speech at 1.2.354 in The Tempest should be assigned, as in the Folio, to
Miranda. To me it seems clear that the older editors were right, that
this speech is entirely out of character for Miranda, and belongs to
Prospero.  But I'm willing to bet that many members of this list would
disagree. Does anyone else find the reasons given by Kermode, Orgel et.
al. inadequate?

Best wishes,
David Bishop
