The Tempest is More Like A Shower

I’m all for a peaceful resolution in life but literature is different. The Tempest failed to deliver on its name sake. Sure there was literally a storm in the beginning but is that the only reason it’s called that? I find that superficial. The fact that Prospero forgives everyone in the end might make him the better man but it also makes him a boring man. Now don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the play but I’m just saying the end was lack luster and disappointing when you think of it as the end to the last play Shakespeare would write.
