FYS In-Class Presentation                   Maggie Morris 1.23.08  Act 4 Seems as though Prospero is bi-polar the way he has changed his mind so  quickly about Miranda and Ferdinand. Despite the fact that it is part of his  plan, it seems as though he is being a little obvious when he changed his  mind so quickly. Lines 13-23: the language used by Prospero, “gift” “purchased” make Miranda  seem as though she is his property to do with what he pleases (totally  pimping her out!) o In this passage he also discusses Ferdinand “breaking her (Miranda’s)  virgin knot” which seems to be overstepping the lines of a father-in-law  just a little bit o He basically says that they are going to hell if Ferdinand can’t control  himself until the wedding night.  I think when Prospero summons all of the spirits, he is trying to show off his  powers for his new son-in-law.  He does have them give gifts to Miranda and Ferdinand and blesses them so  that they will have a full, long, ad prosperous life and have children.
