What does Prospero stage in order to celebrate the betrothal of Miranda and Ferdinand?
A masque. These were pompous and rather static entertainments which were popular at the time. In including one in the play, Shakespeare was bowing to the popular taste for spectacle. Such spectacular scenes were a feature of his late plays: in A Winter's Tale a real bear appears on the stage, in Cymbeline an actor representing Jupiter is lowered from the stage ceiling for no good dramatic reason, and Henry VIII is full of long and spectacular processions.

He wishes Ferdinand and Miranda to marry as part of his plot to restore himself (and Miranda) to their rightful place in the Duchy of Milan. In engineering Ferdinand and Miranda's romance, Prospero realises that "too light winning" (getting Miranda's hand too easily) will "make the prize light" (he'll get bored and take her for granted, and move onto his next conquest.)

In the Tempest Prospero is the deposed Duke of Milan who has been marooned on a desert island which he has been able to take control of by means of his magic powers. Miranda is his daughter.
He treats Miranda like a daughter, yet he still uses his magical powers on her so she does what he wants.
Caliban tells Stephano and Trinculo that he will become their slave and they can have children with Miranda if they kill Prospero.
Prospero taught caliban how to speak and they were good friends. Caliban ended up tring to rape Miranda, Prospero's daughter. Prospero then makes him a slave.
Prospero is the rightful Duke of Milan and has been stranded for 12 years on an island after his jealous brother, Antonio, deposed him, and set his adrift with the 3 year old Miranda
Yes he is. Prospero is the rightful Duke of Milan, who (with his daughter, Miranda) was put to sea on a boat to die by his usurping brother, Antonio, twelve years before the play begins.
Prospero is the main character: the magical father of Miranda who lives on the island and controls all its inhabitants. He struggles in his relationships to Ariel and Caliban as well as with the forgiveness of the nobles that ousted him from his Dukedom.
Because the island that they all live on was previously Caliban's, until Prospero and his daughter Miranda came along and made Caliban their servant.
prospero does not like caliban very much and sets caliban hard work to do just because caliban raped miranda. who's side do you tke? caliban's...or Prospero's?
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.
