      As you may know, I’m very interested in the intersection of science (or pseudo-science) and literature. My favourite play of ol’ William Shakespeare has to be The Tempest, set on a wild and remote island. In a nutshell, the sorcerer Prospero, the rightful and usurped Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion, enchanting spirits, and manipulation. Stephano (/ ˈ s t ɛ f ən oʊ / STEF-ə-noh) is a boisterous and often drunk butler of King Alonso in William Shakespeare's play, The , Trinculo and Caliban plot against Prospero, the ruler of the island on which the play is set and the former Duke of Milan in Shakespeare's fictional universe. In the play, he wants to take over the island and marry Prospero's daughter, d by: William Shakespeare.

      Caliban feels that the island should be rightfully his because he was born there. He believes that Prospero charmed him in the beginning only to betray his trust in the end after he tells Prospero the secrets of the island.   Takaki - Chapter 8: 3 questions Even before starting the chapter, I knew what it was about. Takaki seems to be tackling the races and showing how there struggle has been similar in the beginning. Chapter 8 is charmingly titled “Searching for Gold Mountain,” it was the Asians turn. From previous knowledge I knew.

Caliban's Shore by Stephen Taylor tells the true story of the Grosvenor which was one of the finest East Indiamen of her day. She ran aground on the treacherous coast of south-east Africa. An astonishing number of her crew and passengers, including women and children, reached the shore safely, but the castaways found themselves hundreds of miles from the nearest European outpost - and utterly.Caliban, thinking that Stefano must be a god, misjudges Stefano's power.

As Caliban is stuck in Prospero's service, because he knows no one more powerful, Caliban sees Stefano as an advocate and something of a savior. This isn't Caliban being malicious; rather he is naïve and hopeful about freedom. James S.A. Corey is the pen name of Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, creators of the science fiction series "The Expanse."The second book in the epic space opera "Caliban's War" was recently released.
