Question description

For this essay, students will read a quotation below and analyze its meaning in the context of the play. In other words, explain why it is important and what it means in the play as a whole. Students should write 2- pages minimum and may use books and notes. Please be advised that you may not simply replicate answers from websites such as Sparknotes and answers will be checked closely against the internet. Although these websites may inform your understanding of the play, your answers should be your own opinion supported by explanation/examples from The Tempest.

Option Two: Caliban Act 1, Scene 2

Cursed be I that did so!—All the charms Of Sycorax, toads, beetles, bats, light on you! For I am all the subjects that you have,
