Best Prospero Quotes [2022]

“It would be like Prospero’s island, but in a good way: not a country of exile, a model world, safe and peaceful and private. A magician’s land.” ― Lev Grossman

“At the happy ending of the Tempest, Prospero brings the kind back together with his son, and finds Miranda’s true love and punishes the bad duke and frees Ariel, and becomes a duke himself again. Everyone – except Caliban – is happy, and everyone is forgiven, and everyone is fine, and they all sail away on calm seas. Happy endings. That’s how it is in Shakespeare. But Shakespeare was wrong. Sometimes there isn’t a Prospero to make everything fine again. And sometimes the quality of mercy is strained.” Gary D.

“I have to confess that I felt rather proud of the simple device of my suffocating cloud. The Prospero of poisons, the Faustus of the front, bringing mental magic to modern armament.” Tony Harrison

“One of the reasons [William] Shakespeare is so endlessly fascinating is that you can look at that figure from about 10 different angles: Caliban in Shakespeare’s day was probably viewed as a sort of comic, barbarian type, but into the 19th century there were productions where Caliban was the hero. He’s a potential rapist of a minor. Is that a good thing? No, it is not. On the other hand, Prospero’s got him cooped up in a cave and tortures him if he doesn’t do what Prospero wants. Is that a good thing? No. Shakespeare doesn’t let you off easily.” Margaret Atwood

“Thou poisonous slave, got by the devil himself Upon thy wicked dam” ― William Shakespeare, The Tempest

“For this, be sure, tonight thou shalt have cramps,

Side-stitches that shall pen thy breath up. Urchins

Shall forth at vast of night that they may work

All exercise on thee. Thou shalt be pinched

As thick as honeycomb, each pinch more stinging

Than bees that made ’em.” ― William Shakespeare, The Tempest

“Thou shalt be free As mountain winds: but then exactly do All points of my command.” ― William Shakespeare, The Tempest
