Ferdinand, and Morbius’ monster as a psychologically spawned Caliban. It’s a nice fit: science stands in for magic during a time of atomic paranoia and concerns about the dangers of technology. Rick Worland and David Slayden, however, go against this interpretive grain, suggesting that The Tempest is more an ‘interpretive red herring’ than a relevant source. They argue that the story of Adam and Eve cast out of Eden is thematically more to the point (142).

The judges merely dragged Harris back to 1767 and upheld what he
had agreed to, condemning everyone involved to repeat the last three
years. The contract could not be torn up, they insisted. ‘Mr. Colman do
continue in the conduct of the theatre,’ they decided, ‘subject, however
to the advice and inspection of the three other managers, but not to the
absolute control.’ Anything else would be ‘an absurdity in terms’, one of
them claimed, ‘and something like Trinculo’s delegated power to Caliban
