Prospero

To all I see, I bid a gracious hello. I am a magician by trade, and my name is Prospero. I was once Duke of Milan twelve years ago. However, I was deposed by my treacherous brother Antonio. With my daughter Miranda, on this island I now dwell. Also, there is a spirit who goes by the name of Ariel. I can also mention a creature half beast, half man. This incorrigible soul goes by the name of Caliban. I understand Antonio is aboard a ship at sea. Some other adversaries keep him company. Let me sink their ship in a storm, and have them come to me. based on the play "The Tempest" by William Shakespeare

You know the play well. I've seen it thrice and read it twice, but to understand it would be triply nice.

Nice work, Robert. I once saw this play performed at an outdoor theater in a winery in Virginia. It was haunting; still is. Thanks for conjuring up the memory.
