Caliban’s Redemption

(to be)
 
 
Prospero, you are the master of illusion.
Lying is your trademark.
And you have lied so much to me 
(lied about the world, lied about me)
That you have ended by imposing on me an image of myself...
Underdeveloped, you brand me, inferior,
That ís the way you have forced me to see myself
I detest that image! What's more, it's a lie!
But now I know you, you old cancer,

..and I know myself as well
.
-Caliban, in Aime Cesaire's "The Tempest"
