Some scholars argue that the play takes place in Bermuda and reflects how the English would treat the non-English during colonization. Others argue that the play has nothing to do with the “New World;” that it is about human fears of the unknown and that its context bears no relevance to its meaning. Ronald Takaki argues that Caliban is more specifically an English creation and that Caliban could represent how the English saw non-English people and uses specific examples. Understanding all of these elements, answer the following prompt, using a thesis-driven and well-supported argument. Who Is Caliban? Successful essays will have AT LEAST THREE examples from the play and Ronald Takaki’s textbook.
