The Tempest – Prospero quotes

Prospero as authoritarian over Miranda Obey and be attentive
Prospero controlling Miranda Thou art inclined to sleep
Prospero constructing M +F’s relationship It goes on I see / As my soul prompts it
Prospero treating Caliban like an animal And here you sty me
Prospero taught Caliban language neg You taught me language, and my profit on”t, Is I know how to curse
Prospero taught Caliban language pos You taught me language
Prospero being nice to Caliban You strok’st me and made much of me
Caliban loving Prospero And then I loved thee
Prospero as rightfully banished Rapt in secret studies
Not rightfully banished from Milan The love my people bore me
Prospero sets Ariel free Then to the elements, be free
Prospero acknowledging Caliban This thing of darnkess I acknowledge mine
Prospero forgives Antonio I do forgive thee
Prospero drowns his book Drown my book
Prospero changing his reason Nobler reason, ‘gainst my fury
Prospero becoming virtuous In virtue than in vengeance
Prospero breaks his staff break my staff
Forgives Caliban to have my pardon
Prospero without magic and just as a man what strength I have’s mine own
Asks for release from the audience release me from my bands
Christ as saving him Mercy itself, and frees, all faults
Asks audience to set him free As you from crimes would pardoned be, let your indulgence set me free
Prospero the coloniser taking Caliban’s island This islands mine, by Sycorax my mother, which thou takest from me
Prospero as a director of action It goes on I see / As my soul prompts it
Prospero having planned it So glad of this as they I cannot be, who are surprised withal
Prospero as an artist my art
Prospero and his project project
Prospero saying goodbye to magic just as Shakespeare does to writing Our revels now are ended
Prospero mentions the globe The great globe itself, yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
