The Tempest
  • To the dread rattling thunder
  • Have I given fire and rifted Joves stout oak
  • With his own bolt.

Whats in the scenes?
  • You know the main things that happen, but heres
    a reminder anyway.

Act 5 scene 1
  • Ariel sings happily at the thought of freedom.
  • Prospero appears to Alonso and his friends
    dressed as the Duke of Milan.

    him in the past and has always been loyal.
  • Prospero forgives Sebastian and Antonio in spite
    of their wickedness.

Act 1 scene 2
  • Prospero checks that Ariel has completed his work
  • Ariel explains that he has made a storm, but that
    Alonso and everyone who was on the ship is now
    safe on the island in different places.
  • Ariel reminds Prospero of his promise to set him
    free when the work is done.

Act 1 Scene 2 Continued
  • Prospero is furious at Ariels cheek and reminds
    him how he would still be trapped in a pine tree
    without Prosperos help.
  • Ariel is scared and goes humbly to carry
    Prosperos instructions.
  • Prospero wakes Miranda and they go to see Caliban
    to enjoy insulting him.

  • Ariel makes Prospero feel sorry for Alonso and
    his friends who have been imprisoned in a
    line-grove (wood).
  • Prospero tells how his desire for revenge has
    faded and he plans to give up his magic.

Act 5 scene 1

    reminds everyone how powerful his magic is.

    Sebastian from the wood.
  • Prospero speaks to each- according to how they
    have treated him.
  • He send Ariel to fetch his hat and sword so that
    he can appear as the Duke of Milan.

How the exam is organised
  • You have 45 minutes to answer ONE question
  • You will be given two extracts from the set
    scenes (part of the Act 1 scene and part of the
    act 5 scene)
  • You will need to write about BOTH extracts in
    your answer.

Tips and Hints
  • Spend a couple of minutes planning your answer
  • Write ONE sentence as an introduction, before the
    main part of the answer
  • Use PEE method, whichever sort of question you
  • Develop your explanations fully
  • Write ONE sentence as a conclusion at the end.

And finally
  • Aim to write about 2 sides in the answer book
  • If you run out of space, ask for more paper
  • Check your work carefully when you have finished.

Prospero says
  • Remember everything you have learned about
    how to succeed in this exam, or I will imprison
    you in the knotty entrails of an oak for twelve
  • only joking!
