Title: "Hell is Empty, and All the Devils are Here": The Influence of Doctor Faustus on The Tempest
Creators: Holmes, Jonathan
Advisor: Alwes, Derek
Issue Date: 2009-03
Abstract: There are a number of analogous scenes and characters between Doctor Faustus and The Tempest that contribute to an argument for the influence of Marlowe's play upon Shakespeare's. Such an influence can have a profound effect on how we read The Tempest, specifically regarding how we perceive Prospero and Ariel.
