Cuz hez da bad-guy!!. Caliban is the "slave" of Prospero. Prospero and Miranda, his daughter, used to like Caliban but once he tried to sexually assault Miranda. Caliban's mother was a witch called Sycorax who was the actual owner of the island, but she died. Caliban believes that the island should… be his instead of Prospero's. (MORE)

Prospero's sprite was Ariel in The Tempest. (Note proper nouns (names) start with a capital letter)
Ariel is a sprite who seems to represent human imagination. In the play Ariel is a theatrical device which enables the hero Prospero to have remote control over his enemies. It is Ariel who sinks his enemies ship , locks up the crew, leads others to dance in the pool and so on. -------------------…------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ariel is an Air Spirit who is one of two servants of Prospero's (Caliban being the other). Simply put, Ariel is good, and Caliban evil. Ariel air, Caliban earth. Ariel's past: Before Prospero got to this island, a wicked witch named Sycorax (Caliban's mom) ruled. She tried to abuse Ariel as a slave, but Ariel couldn't do the evil tasks she was supposed to, so Sycorax put Ariel in a tree. about 12 years later, Prospero came and released her, so now she "Owes him" and serves him for that purpose. There is controversy over Ariel's gender, but in the original text Ariel was addressed as a "he" twice. (MORE)
Ariel was a male sprite whom Prospero released from captivity and whom Prospero then enslaved.

Then he draws his brother's ship to his island and makes his son believe that his dad is dead and vise versa. Then He meets his daughter and falls in live and the father likes him but puts him through test to see if he is true. He is. (I haven't read the whole thing but that is what I have read so far.) Prospero is a man who studied magic and was in charge of Naples. because he was usy studying magic his brother took over for a bit but then his brother started planing stuff with the king of Naples( Alonso) and Prospero and Miranda, his daughter, where left in a boat and sailed away (but before that an old man (Gonzalo) gave them food and gave Prospero his magic books. then, like 15 years later, prospero lives with miranda on an island with Ariel, his fairee slave and caliban, his slave who tried to rape miranda. prospero creates a tempest and the people on the boat land on the island.

The Tempest . Theme and Motifs . The Tempest is overtly concerned with its own nature as a play, frequently drawing links between Prospero's Art and theatrical illusion. The shipwreck was a "spectacle" "performed" by Ariel; Antonio and Sebastian are "cast" in a "troop" to "act"; Miranda's eyeli…ds are "fringed curtains". Prospero is even made to refer to the Globe Theatre when claiming the whole world is an illusion: "the great globe... shall dissolve... like this insubstantial pageant". Ariel frequently disguises himself as figures from Classical mythology, for example a nymph, a harpy and Ceres, acting as the latter in a masque and anti-masque that Prospero creates. . Early critics saw this constant allusion to the theatre as an indication that Prospero was meant to represent Shakespeare; the character's renunciation of magic thus signalling Shakespeare's farewell to the stage. This theory has fallen into disfavour; but certainly The Tempest is interested in the way that, like Prospero's "Art", the theatre can be both an immoral occupation and yet morally transformative for its audience.. Magic was a controversial subject in Shakespeare's day. In Italy in 1600, Giordano Bruno was burnt at the stake for his occult studies, and John Dee, an Englishman and student of supernatural phenomena, died in disgrace in 1608. Outside the Catholic world, in Protestant England, where Shakespeare wrote "The Tempest," magic was also taboo. While not emulating his great aunt, the Bloody Queen Mary, it must be remembered that King James I - under whose rule "The Tempest" was written - both had a Catholic wife and oversaw the translation of the King James Bible. Yet, not all magic was considered evil. Several scientists took what they called a more "rational" approach to the study of the supernatural, determined to discover the workings behind unusual phenomena. Henricus Cornelius Agrippa was one such scientist, who published in De Occulta Philosophia his observations of "divine" magic. Agrippa's work influenced Dr. John Dee, an Englishman. Both Agrippa and Dee describe a kind of magic similar to Prospero's-one that is based on 16th-century science, rationality, and divinity, rather than the occult. When King James took the throne, Dee found himself under attack for his beliefs, but was able to defend himself successfully by explaining the divine nature of his profession.. Shakespeare is also careful to make the distinction that Prospero is a rational, and not an occultist, magician. He does this by providing a contrast to him in Sycorax. Sycorax is said to have worshiped the devil and been full of "earthy and abhored commands". She was unable to control Ariel, who was "too delicate" for such dark tasks. Prospero's rational goodness enables him to control Ariel where Sycorax can only trap him in a tree. Sycorax's magic is frequently described as destructive and terrible, where Prospero's is said to be wondrous and beautiful. Prospero seeks to set things right in his world through his magic, and once that is done, he renounces it, setting Ariel free. (MORE)

The Tempest is set on a fictional Island, which many scholars agree is meant to be located in the Mediterranean Sea. Another reading suggests that it takes place in the New World, as some parts read like records of English and Spanish conquest in the Americas. Still others argue that the Island can …represent any land that has been colonized. (MORE)
The Tempest is about a man called Prospero, who used to be Duke of Milan but was soon betrayed by his own brother called Antonio whilst Prospero studied magic. He was sent out to sea on a boat with his daughter called Miranda, who has never seen a man except her dad and Caliban (who comes up at a la…ter point). Prospero and Miranda soon find themselves on land that they have never seen before, where Caliban shows them around. 12 years later and Prospero is the ruler, with 2 slaves: Ariel, who is neither a Male nor Female. Then there is Caliban, the "dark creature" mentioned before, who does his best to disobey Prospero. Prospero soon discovers that a ship carrying Antonio, Alonso and Ferdinand (the people who overthrew him) was passing near the island. With help from Ariel, Prospero summons The Tempest, a huge storm, to shipwreck them on the island. The stranded try to search for each other, hindered by Ariel along the way. Then Alonso and Ferdinand reunite, but Ferdinand finds Miranda and decides to marry her (without knowing that his father Alonso was the person who banished Prospero). Eventually the situation ends, and Prospero using his magic makes them all forgive each other, and then sets Ariel free. He gives up his magic and returns back home, with everyone except Caliban. Prospero is then reinstated as Duke of Milan. (Oh, and can people PLEASE stop answering if they are just going to go off topic) (MORE)
Tempest isn't a person, it's the title of a play written by William Shakespeare, which has been made into a film.
Trincula, a jester, was a minor member of the shipwrecked party who had escaped the tempest and reached the island safely.
Alonso is the King of Naples Sebastian is Alonso's brother Antonio, the usurping Duke of Milan, is Prospero's brother ferdinand is Alonso's son
The Tempest is set on a desert island. The wizardProspero and his daughter Miranda live there with Ariel, the sprite, Caliban, the monster-slave-thing, and other spirits. Prospero was once the duke of Milan, but his brother Antonio usurped the dukedom and banished with Miranda to the ocean, and they… washed up on the island. Many years later, Alonso, the King of Naples and his son, Ferdinand, and brother Sebastian, and Antonio, and others of the court are shipwrecked on Prospero's island. Prospero caused the tempest that wrecked them as revenge for banishing him, but his daughter Miranda begged him to right the wrong because she was merciful. It is all about what happens when Prospero and his enemies meet, Miranda falls in love, and Caliban attempts mutiny Its a great play. (MORE)
It is thought to have been written in 1610 - 11, although it has been dated earlier by some researchers. It was originally published as a comedy in the First Folio in 1623. It has also been catagorized as one of Shakespeare's late romances.
None of the characters die, there is a betrothal at the end, and there is some humour (for example when Stephano and Trinculo are drinking, and through the spirits, such as Ariel).
It depends on which king you are referring to. Mufasa was the king in the beginning of the film. After Mufasa died, Scar became king until he defeated by his nephew, Simba, who became king at the end of the movie.
Colonialism - many critics, known as 'post-colonial' critics,believe that Shakespeare wrote 'The Tempest' in response to awidely-circulated letter by William Strachey, detailing the accountof a shipwreck and life in the Bermudas with 'cannibals.'Shakespeare would probably have seen this letter. 'Cal…iban' isalmost an anagram of 'cannibal,' linking to the idea of a contextof colonialism, and Prospero can be interpreted as a 'coloniser,'exploiting Caliban for slavery and taking over an island which isnot rightfully his. Colonialism was a big issue in the Renaissanceera - Trinculo, Stephano and Antonion all consider making money outof Caliban as a slave or oddity. Caliban is the 'colonised;' -oppressed (MORE)
It is actually considered a comedy but one reason for thinking it is a romance could be that Miranda and Ferdinand fall in love.

Ferdinand is the son of Alonso, King of Naples. He is separated from his father and companions following the shipwreck and stumbles upon Prospero and Miranda. He falls in love with Miranda and later becomes her husband.

Caliban-represents inferiority/view of African Americans and how whites viewed blacks as inferior and unchangable Prospero-represents revenge and misuse of power. Prospero brings Alonso,Anthonio and Sebastian in an attempt to teach them a lesson and for him to regain his kingdom. Ferdinand and Miran…da- are a symbol of political unions and star crossed lovers that were often present in Shakespeare's plays.They were useed by Prospero as a means to regain his kingdom.

It really depends, it could be a actual name or simply a name the king wants to be called. King Arthur King Bob --- Or they can make up a name King Forge The Great King Ash the Wicked King Harsh King Destroyer
Quite a lot, actually. If you want me to share it with you, you need to ask specific questions.
The Tempest was not written to communicate a moral; it was not written for a Sunday School Class. It was written to entertain. The audience may derive a better understanding of something by means of the action of the play, but that depends entirely on what the audience wants to take away from it. I…n any case, of all of Shakespeare's plays, The Tempest is one of the least didactic and most ambiguous. What kind of silly moral would you propose: that if you keep a girl from seeing other people, she'll fall for the first man she sees? (MORE)
Stephano the butler and Trinculo the jester. They also give alcohol to Caliban, Prospero's slave, in order to win him over to their side.
Ariel and Caliban are not really people. The characters who are people are: Prospero, Miranda, Sebastian, Alonzo, Antonio, Ferdinand, Gonzalo, Trinculo, Stephano.
To celebrate Miranda's engagement, Prospero conjures up a masque with different Roman goddesses, including Iris, goddess of dawn.
Ariel is not a fairy, he is a spirit of the air. He's a different kind of magical being from the fairies in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
A film version of The Tempest, directed by Julie Taymor and starring Helen Mirren as Prospero, was released in 2010 and is now available in DVD form. It is a visually exciting film and also makes the story reasonably comprehensible. There have of course been film and TV versions of the Tempest goin…g back to 1908 (The 1908 film is quite fun, using the relatively new use of stop action and other camera tricks to portray Ariel's magic). And the story has resulted in a lot of off-the-wall adaptations, some using Shakespeare's language and some abandoning it altogether. (MORE)
Probably Antonio and Sebastian because they let greed and power consume then. They planned to kill the king. Hope this is what your looking for.
Yes, Prospero in The Tempest is capable of doing magic AKA YOURMUM, by reason of long study of those subjects.
The answer to the definition of tempests is well a tempest means a storm so tempest s means storm s .
The planet Uranus is the seventh one from the Sun in our solar system. There are a total of 27 known moons of Uranus. The fifth moon is known as Miranda which was the spirit that was seen in The Tempest.
