Seija Sinikki outline's Walter Clyde Curry's version of The Tempest
thus:

"Theurgy, and Prospero as a theurgist, harmonizes the disordered
elements in the world. Black magic, on the contrary, disturbs the
sympathetic relations in the natural realm, causing disorder. Prospero
uses his powers to right the disorder in his universe and in the process
his soul is cleansed of its baser passions. His magic is a means to this
end. The purpose obtained, he can destroy his books."

Which brings us right back to the start of this thread, and the theatre
puff quoted by Prof. Lindley which reduced the play to sweetness and
light, faeries and goblins, and intolerably binarized notions of what
and who is good or evil...
