“Where Caliban’s lust is an attempt to break through his servitude, Ferdinand’s love, his willingness to carry wood, represents an acceptance of servitude within freedom.” —Norman Holland. We all have responsibilities no matter how much freedom we enjoy. It seems the more responsibilities we fulfill, the more we enjoy our freedom. It’s much easier when we embrace this part of our lives rather than resist it. Also the more restraint we exhibit, the more virtue we build. Virtue is one thing that money cannot buy and is prized above riches. Prospero’s reason for raising his enemies to the shore was for retribution, but ultimately he relents,”The rarer action is in virtue than in vengeance. They being penitent, the sole drift of my purpose doth extend not a frown further. Go, release them, Ariel.” It would have been easy to have exacted revenge on his enemies, but once he realizes they are truly sorry, he sides with the nobler action: forgiveness.
