- His enemies are among those caught in a storm near the island, Prospero turns his power upon them through Ariel and other spirits
- Prospero with antihero qualities, enslaves Caliban and seeks revenge
- Caliban is viewed as a monster for attacking Miranda, but resists Prospero, evoking the period of colonialism during which the play was written
- Through the events and struggle in the play, Miranda’s engagement to Ferdinand, the Prince of Naples and a member of the shipwrecked party. This turns out to be Prosperos plan all along and his revenge was actually a way to ensure his daughter is restored to her status as princess of Milan
- Prospero gives all his powers away and sets free his prisoner’s once his plan succeeds
- Prosperos lesson was, all his pursuit led him to were he is and in order to set his world right he must give up all that brought him his power.
