    In the last decades of the twentieth century adaptations and critical responses to The Tempest can be broadly divided into two basic themes. Lanier describes these as one that emphasises the charming qualities of the play, "its fantasy and romantic elements and benevolent tone," and one that "focuses on the troubling legacies of colonial and patriarchal politics" (33). Prospero admits that he was more interested in his books than in ruling the kingdom, saying, “My library/ Was dukedom large enough” (). He also acknowledges that Antonio was a successful ruler, saying that he had “Perfected how to grant suits,/ How to deny them, who t’advance and who/ To trash for over-topping” ().
