        • The Elements
          • Caliban is associated with the lowest element, earth. Alonso's party are forced to abandon the sea and return to land until they can return to the sea in the final act whilst Caliban most likely remains on land. Prospero and Ariel can control all elements together allowing them power of everyone in the play, as seen by summoning on the tempest in the first act and the slave Caliban.
            • Contemporary audiences would have been aware of the hierarchy of the four elements (water, fire, air and earth).
