Freedom, high-day; high-day freedom; freedom high-day, freedom.
– William Shakespeare
The Tempest, Act 2, Scene 2. Song sung by Caliban, in which he rejoices about his new-found "freedom." But the irony is that he really isn’t free at all. He has just chosen another master in the drunken Stephano, whom he looks up to as a god. It is as if Caliban, who has experienced slavery and subjugation under the imperialist-style rule of Prospero, can no longer conceive of being his own master.
