Motifs, therefore, help Shakespeare bring out the veracious analogies underlying in his text.
The tempest that occurs at the beginning of the paly symbolizes notable things. To begin with, it highlights the conflicts occurring between the characters in the boat. This, especially, is crucial in the context of a wedding and a serene sea that may not promise an underlying tension. The tempest warns the audience that the characters in the boat have unresolved differences. It is essential to note that the storm places Prospero’s enemies at a vulnerable position, whereby he can exploit them for his own ends. This symbolizes his earlier suffering and struggle. Just as Prospero suffered in the sea some years ago, he places the victims of the shipwreck at the mercy of the sea. The audience later uncovers that the storm is not a natural occurrence as it had been caused by Prospero.
A malicious aspect of magic warns the audience of the danger of dalliance with a mystical world. Prospero, however, is careful and conscientious enough to only use magic as a means of punishment, but not as a way of obliterating his enemies. This is because the storm does not cause any harm. In a large sense, the tempest reveals a noble and benevolent character of Prospero that seeks to realign the society towards normalcy. More essentially, the tempest represents a social upheaval that upsets the status of the privileged class in the society. The storm sets the Shakespearean society for a more egalitarian mode of life that respects the dignity of the person. When the characters suffer from the shipwreck, it manifests that death is a unifying factor that does not favor a person, regardless of one’s societal status. Shakespeare, in the character of Prospero, is an idealist who detests the feudal systems that place a certain class of individuals above others. He, therefore, seeks to reveal the meaninglessness of royal titles in life.

Shakespeare in his play, Othello depicts about social unacceptability of a moor in Venetian society and draws the attention of his readers towards the cultural values of the society in terms of color and complexion of Othello.

Within this context, the tragic fall of the hero from fame to untimely downfall or even doom is related to the change in character.

In the play A Tempest by Aime Cesaire is based upon the character of Caliban in Shakespeare's The Tempest. Caliban is a deformed slave, and this is shown through many different passages in the original play.
The Telamarines in Prince Caspian did not believe in Aslan. They also did not believe in the stories about Lucy, Susan, Peter and Edmund, which means that they did not believe in the light and the good.
