    Abstract: 此篇論文藉由討論莎士比亞《暴風雨》中,以同情(compassion)與能力(competence)為核心的議題,給予劇中主角普洛斯彼羅(Prospero)一個更為公平合理的詮釋。雖然在劇裡擁有魔法與政治權力看似掌握一切,這些力量應該被良善的意圖管束。普羅斯彼羅能夠在同情心的管束下使用自己的能力,也藉此展現了成為一位好君主的本質。
    This thesis aims to provide a more justifiable interpretation of Prospero by bringing the issue of compassion and competence into discussion. The thesis proposes that powerful as they are, magical and political powers should be guided under a good intention. When demonstrating his competence under the guidance of compassion, Prospero achieves the essence of a good duke.

    The thesis first gives a brief review of former approaches in viewing Prospero, and further brings out the issue of magic in the play that has appeared in past criticism. The second chapter introduces magic in Shakespeare’s time and the tight connection between magic and the authority. This chapter later provides a detailed analysis of political power and Prospero’s magic, which are defined as competence in the thesis. This chapter points out the similarities shared by these two powers and also their limitations. Continuing the discussion of the second chapter, the third chapter discusses how compassion is portrayed in the play, how it is related to Prospero, and the significance it possesses when being related to powers. Compassion and competence are brought together in the fourth chapter, which proposes that the later should be governed under the former. The argument is further strengthened by Erasmus’ concerns of a good sovereign. The last chapter brings new perspectives from the former approaches in seeing Prospero, and thus renders a more justifiable position in understanding this powerful magician.
