Over the course of this semester, the class has read and discussed four plays. The four plays include Madea, Oedipus, The Tempest and The Importance of Being Earnest.

She is also seen as desperate when she meets Ferdinand and in three hours of meeting one another, they are engaged. Miranda is also naïve since she has been on a remote island for the past twelve years and the only men she has seen is her father Prospero and her father’s servant Caliban. In the play In the Importance of Being Earnest written by Oscar Wilde, there are four females depicted in this play, who is Lady Bracknell, Gwendolen, Cecilly and Miss Prism.

In the beginning of the play Jason is seen as the protector of his children and the household but then he abandons them to be with Glauce. Oedipus in the play Oedipus Rex is depicted as being naïve as believing that he is running away from his fate by going to Thebes, but in reality, he walked right into his fate. Oedipus is also depicted as a murderer by killing the King of Thebes Lauis. He is also seen as selfish because once he found out he married his mother and his children are children of incest he stabbed his eyes out leaving his four children without a father. Prospero in the Tempest is represented as an unsympathetic character because he uses black magic to control people. Prospero is also seen as revengeful since his brother took away the Dukedom of Milan from him. Prospero is also seen as very manipulative by calling his brother and friends to the remote island. At the end of the play, he is depicted as a much more sympathetic and forgivable character with redeeming characteristics. Caliban is Prospero’s servant on the remote island. At first, Caliban is seen as this innocent creature that was forced by Prospero to be his servant. Caliban is also seen as revengeful in plotting a murder against Caliban to get his freedom of the island
