Caliban

“The isle is full of noises, Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.” -Caliban⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Caliban is one of my favorite Shakespeare characters. When he’s being ordered around by Prospero he’s resistant and truculent, but really why wouldn’t he be? Prospero has come to his island and taken away his birthright. When he’s on his own he’s contemplative and observant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the lens of the rock and roll editorial I chose to style Caliban as a jazz and blues musician. Someone who might find their work or talents borrowed by others with more power and influence than they have at their disposal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
