** Bear in mind that Prospero, as a member of the nobility, might not have needed forgiveness for exacting revenge on people who kicked him out of Italy. The sorcery, on the other hand, was [[ValuesDissonance very illegal and a major sin]] in Elizabethan England, and would have been a very good reason for Prospero to beg the audience to pray for his soul, in much the same way that Puck in ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream'' tells the audience that if all this magic has offended them, imagine they have just dreamed it all.

** During his later years John Dee completely lost all courtly income when King James I--well known for his fear of witches, witchcraft, and the supernatural, including astrology--succeeded Queen Elizabeth I in 1603. John Dee was forced to sell most of his books and astrological paraphenalia to survive, a parallel to Prospero giving up his magic, and his books of magic, to return to Milan.

* {{Irony}} : When Miranda comes in at the climax and sees Alonso, Sebastian and Antonio, she's overjoyed at there being ''more'' humans and exclaims "O, wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in't!" She's using these words to describe usurpers and men who would gladly turn upon their own brothers and rulers; if Antonio had had his way, she and her father would be ''long'' dead.
