The tempest acts 4 & 5

Prospero to Ferdinand: Prospero interrupts the celebration when heremembers the plot hatched by Stephano, Trinculo, andCaliban to murder him. Ferdinand has expressed concern atProspero’s strange behavior, and Prospero attempts toreassure him ..Be cheerful, sir,Our revels now are ended; these our actors,As I foretold you, were all spirits, andAre melted into air, into thin air;And like the baseless fabric of this vision,The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,The solemn temples, the great globe itself,Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,And like this insubstantial pageant fadedLeave not a rack behind. We are such stuffAs dreams are made on; and our little lifeIs rounded with a sleep
Prospero talking about Caliban because he’s mad that he is planning to kill him. A devil, a born devil, on whose natureNurture can never stick…
Ariel to prospero This humblecomment reveals the irony of the idea that Ariel is nothuman. (Convinces prospero to take pity on Alonso) Mine would, sir, were I human.
Prospero to Ariel about Alonso (He says that if Ariel, who isonly “air,” can emphathize with the imprisoned men’s plight,then surely Prospero himself should feel even more moved.) Hast thou, which art but air, a touch, a feelingOf their afflictions, and shall not myself,One of their kind, that relish all as sharplyPassion as they, be kindlier moved than thou art?
Prospero (Headmits that he still feels hurt by their “high wrongs,” butreasons that it is more rare to act virtuously than vengefully) ..The rarer action isIn virtue, than in vengeance.
Prospero (this speech suggests that it is necessary for him tostop practicing magic in order to restore the natural orderand balance of power) ..But this rough magicI here abjure…I’ll break my staff,Bury it certain fathoms in the earth,And deeper than ever did plummet soundI’ll drown my book.
Miranda (Seeing the new people, Miranda exclaims, “O brave newworld!”, astonished and delighted by seeing so many newpeople at once. However, Miranda’s joy reveals how na├»veshe is as a result of having grown up on the island. After all,some of the men she is meeting are selfish, disloyal, andcruel, a fact that Prospero hints at immediately after herexcited exclamation) ..O brave new worldThat has such people in’t!
Gonzalo to prospero, Miranda, and Ferdinand (Prospero, Miranda, and Ferdinand, all of whom werepresumed dead, are in fact alive, and that Ferdinand andMiranda have fallen in love. In response to the happy scene,Gonzalo calls on everyone to rejoice, observing that whileFerdinand was lost in the storm, he in fact founda wife;meanwhile, Prospero has regained his dukedom “in a poorisle.” Gonzalo’s statement emphasizes how the upheaval ofthe storm and magic of the island have ultimately resulted ina restoration of the natural order of things) ..O rejoiceBeyond a common joy, and set it downWith gold on lasting pillars: in one voyageDid Claribel her husband find at Tunis,And Ferdinand her brother found a wifeWhere he himself was lost; Prospero, his dukedomIn a poor isle, and all of us ourselves,When no man was his own.
Prospero to Caliban (thereare many times in the play when Caliban is referred to as anonhuman “it” rather than as a man, and this description isrelated to his indigenous status and dark skin.Such an interpretation confirms the impression thatProspero believes Caliban to be his property, and treats himsimultaneously as a child, pet, and inanimate possession.) ..this thing of darkness, IAcknowledge mine.
