** 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.
