Subject: 16.1471 Caliban's Father
Comment: Re: SHK 16.1471 Caliban's Father
Has anyone argued that Caliban is Prospero's son by Sycorax ("this thing
of darkness I / acknowledge mine"). I know there is an occasional
tendency to make Miranda and Caliban contrasting "children", but has
anyone argued the ultimate implication?
