The relaitonship between Prospero and Caliban is based on intimidation, spite and control. Propsero claimed the control of the island even though Caliban feels he is the rightful heir to his dead mother’s reign. Caliban feels angry that Prospero has chained him in slavery through his magic and deprived him of his deserved seat of power. Prospero is dismissive and abusive to Claiban as he considers him an uncultured beast as he tried to assault his daughter.
Contrary to his earlier ambitions, Caliban plots to kill Prospero and place another man, Stefano, in charge. He fails in his attempt and continues to carry a flame of hate for Prospero.
Prospero, however, has a change of heart. He forgives and frees Caliban in the end.
