  1. There are two possible places that the island could be, Lampedusa or Pantalaria. It is an island somewhere between Tunis and Naples, in the Mediterranean Sea.
    The people on the ship were: King Alonso, Ferdinand, Antonio, Sebastian, Trinculo, Stephano and Gonzalo. All of the people on the ship were Prospero’s enemies. Antonio is his brother who got rid of him and took over his dukedom. King Alonso helped Antonio banish Prospero and Miranda to sea to die. Ferdinand, Sebastian, Gonzalo, Trinculo and Stephano followed King Alonso’s orders to help set up a rotting boat for them. Prospero made the storm to get revenge on them.
    Miranda doesn’t approve and she confronts him about it and tells him to stop. She says at she would have sunk the sea into the earth so she didn’t have to see anyone suffer.
    To start the storm, Prospero ordered Ariel to make the passengers hallucinate and make them think that there is a storm and they combined their magic to make it very realistic.
