2.2645 Power and Order in Shakespeare's The Tempest and Romeo and Juliet.
This paper discusses how power creates a social structure that destroys the moral fiber of citizens in "Romeo and Juliet" and "The Tempest". Although the ending of "The Tempest" is more idealistic than in "Romeo and Juliet", we see the negative influence of power. In many respects, the issue of power in Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" is precisely about the relationship between romantic love and parental power. In "The Tempest", meanwhile, it is clear that Antonio had too much power and abused the affairs of state. 5 pgs. 5 f/c. 5b.

3.4349 Language and Power in Shakespeare's "The Tempest".
Although the island of Shakespeare's Tempest is far removed from the political machinations of Milan, from where Prospero has fled, we discover that the island is not bereft of the political structure, which existed in the Dukedom. Prospero, in fact, dominates the island in a political manner and has subordinated his daughter, Miranda and the savage, Caliban, to his will. This occurs through the empowering force of language, which becomes a symbol of power in the play. 5 pgs. Bibliography lists 1 source.

4.2917 The Nature of Conflict and the Question of Resolution in William Shakespeare's "The Tempest"
This paper will argue that the form of "The Tempest" is one of conflicts unresolved and (quite literally) disharmony. As will be seen, the play suggests that harmony and closure are themselves illusions. In this analysis, resolution may be seen as an artificial construct, an act of power imposed from without upon a place or an action - such as Prospero's/Caliban's island or life itself - that is naturally chaotic and without form. 6 pgs. 20 f/c. 7b.
