The Tempest: themes
Read the text below and find the six mistakes in it.

An important theme in The Tempest is the warning against the advantages of English expansion. Prospero represents America: he has liberated a far-away island where he has organised himself and made the local inhabitants work with him. He uses force and promises of future richness to impose his power, becoming, in this way, a symbol for the military power Europe was exercising in Shakespeare's time.
