-Prospero
-At the literal level, Prospero is the Duke of Milan. Huge Italian infuence on
the Renaissance during this time. caricature, conversation, balcony - all
derived from Italian and had Italian pronunciations
-Lots of words to do with architecture and cooking in the Shakespearean
time.
-Island resembles Bermuda except for one difference. This island is not in the
Atlantic or near the Caribbean, it’s in the Meditteranean Sea.
-Prospero is a wizard who uses white magic to bring order to a society that has
become disordered. Minds have become inverted, the will rules the reason; passion
and appetite are ruling over reason
