Shakespeare Summaries: 3. The Tempest

First the betrayal of a brother,
Then the self-imposed exile.

The magic of the tempest,
The power over others.

The shipwreck,
The infatuation of the young.

Then the meeting with the brother
Who back-stabbed once.

The forgiving and the forgetting
The showing of clemency.

After the storm, the calm.
The joy of peace.
