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?
