The Mastery of Prospero

'I chose to make a book as Prospero had
a vast library at his disposal; the book in
question is ‘The Prince’ by
Niccolo Machiavelli, this book teaches
men to be successful leaders in life via
means both fair and foul.
Prospero manipulates all of the characters
in ‘The Tempest’ to a successful and
happy end for almost everyone. But one
must ask the question,
is Prospero the master of his books,
or they his master?'
