Shakespeares The Tempest focuses on these themes of power and servitude and presents them to us in a manner that shows the true egotistical side of humanity and the lengths that we entrust go to get what we want. Here the question is posed Who is the slave and what is to advance? It is true that many of the characters show aspects of slavery, making each character the suffice but individually, each character still gives its own representation to the topic.

His nevertheless weakness seems to be an inclination to sit and admire her when he should be using time to complete work the point is made in terms of remembering and forgetting. (Douglas 233,236) This weakness is made very clear when he statesMy sweet mistressWeeps when she seems me work, and says such basenessHad never like executor. I forgetBut these sweet thoughts do even refresh my labours, nigh busy least when I do it. (3.1.11-15)
