Prospero was always interested in studying and learning, and he applied these interests to his magical books on the island. He uses the powers he gained from the books to teach his enemies a lesson. Was Prospero simply delighting in the use of his magical powers? If so, is it logical to think he will just give them up as he claims he will? Why, or why not? Cite examples from the play to support your response.
