Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1477 Caliban's Island

Larry Weiss quotes David Basch, "Prospero ... enters his other role as 
mortal king, contemplating death with every third thought. I had 
mentioned this dual role of Prospero, both God and mortal, in my earlier 
posting."

Then Larry Weiss writes, "I'm sorry I misconstrued the earlier post.  I 
thought Basch equated Prospero with Jahweh, when all along it was really 
Jesus. Perhaps Shakespeare was a Christian after all."

Be careful Monsieur Weiss, as you might find yourself victim of "The 
Pinocchio Theory."
