Short Writing Response: ‘In Some Ways, The Tempest Is About Shakespeare’s Retirement.’
I agree with this statement because the play is all centred around letting go of things, even if it is hard and there are several obstacles that are trying to stop it from happening. This is just like Shakespeare. He had to let go of writing plays, the connection of the audience that he had every time that he wrote the plays and he had to let go of his company The King’s men. He found this hard as he had been writing for several years and loved to do it, but he knew that is was the right time to stop. The obstacles that he faced, were that there were other play-writes that wanted to be better than him and takeover his role in The King’s Men and Shakespeare didn’t want them too, but if he gave up, then someone might and that wouldn’t have been a good thing for him as people wouldn’t be as interested in his plays, instead they would go and watch the person that had taken over. However, all his worries didn’t happen as after he retired people still payed large sums of money to see his plays and still do, even though people did take over his role, they weren’t as successful.

Miranda says, “I am your wife if you will marry me; If not I’ll die your maid.” She is willing to not marry anyone if he says no to her as she loves him so much. Ferdinand is a prince, and thinks that he could possibly the King, so when he does labour work for her, just to prove that he is worthy of her is quite spectacular. He says, “and for your sake, Am I this patient log-man.” This means that he will do any honourable thing for her and will slave for her.
Another thing that means that their love I genuine, is the fact that they fell in love the instant, that they saw each other. Miranda didn’t k...
