Comment: 	RE: SHK 17.0756 My Reading of "The Tempest"

Tom Sellari asks:

 >What do you contend Prospero wants to be? What is Caliban? <

Caliban is Prospero's heart of darkness, which the gray magus refuses to 
acknowledge until late in the play when he buries but does not destroy 
his instruments of power.

Mr Swaray writes:

 >What makes you
 >think that Prospero wants to become Caliban or return to a state of
 >nature that does not enhance the quality and intellect of Man and
 >existence.

My dear Nabie, when you look into Shakespeare's mirror, do you see Othello?

Regards,
Joe Egert
