'The Tempest' is thought to have been written about the year created on stage by Shakespeare's use of sound, exotic images, music and the “ Remember/ first to posses his books,” Caliban says to Stephano and Trinculo, “ for without.

Scene II  Origins[ edit ] It is not clear where the character of Stephano originated, though he is a familiar clown figure typical of the era. There is one idea that he was modelled after Stephen Hopkins from London.

Hopkins was aboard the Sea Venture when it was shipwrecked on Bermuda. He attempted to start a mutiny while stranded on the island. He eventually made it to Virginia and back to England, then went to Plymouth aboard the Mayflower. In a way, he seemed to have been condemning humans.

The Tempest is a prime example of the selfishnessegocentrismand power hunger that we see and deal with every day. Trinculo and Stephano were two characters used to show how wrong human beings are. The Mayflower and her passengers Indiana: The general complaint by those who have read the play, including most college professors, use the alleged complaint of rape as a justifiable reason for the poor treatment Caliban receives at the hands of all who come into contact with him.
But this is taking political correctness too far, in my opinion.
Before we even meet Caliban, Shakespeare already builds suspense around him: We are already given information on Caliban so that we are prejudiced about him before he enters the story. The first few things we hear about Caliban forms an animalistic view of the man. His mother Sycorax was from Argier, and his father Setebos seems to have been a Patagonian deity. Sycorax was exiled from Argier for witchcraft, much like Prospero himself, and Caliban was born on the island.
Surprisingly, Caliban also mirrors and contrasts with Ferdinand in certain ways. Caliban wants to get rid of Prospero, when he comes upon Stephano he thinks he is some sort of God as Stephano gives him alcohol. To Miranda and Prospero the use of language is a means to knowing oneself. Caliban does not view language in the same light. Prospero taught Caliban to speak, but instead of creating the feeling of empowerment from language, Caliban reacts in a rebellious manner.

It reminds him how different he is from Miranda and Prospero, and also how they have changed him. Shakespeare is perhaps using the relation between Caliban and Prospero to exploit the theme of colonialism.
Caliban speaks in beautiful measured verse, more complex than anyone else on the island. It is extremely unusual Shakespeare would credit this verse to a serving character.
By using a wide range of dramatic methods, Shakespeare has presented his audience with two extraordinary characters and a multi-layered relationship. I believe that the relationship between Prospero and Caliban is one that shows many different themes within from magic to enslavement to fully express and present important dramatic methods.
