As wicked dew as e’er my mother brushed
With raven’s feather from unwholesome fen
Drop on you both. A southwest blow on you
And blister you all o’er.
– William Shakespeare
The Tempest, Act 1, Scene 2. The first words spoken by Caliban in the play shows his hatred and extreme anger towards Prospero and Miranda. Showing his rebelliousness and disobedience when called, he curses them in two different ways, invoking the name of his dead sorceress mother Sycorax. He references her witchcraft, calling on her "wicked dew" to drop on them. Caliban believes the island is rightfully his and was stolen by Prospero. This level of extreme hatred foreshadows Caliban’s plot to hurt Prospero and Miranda.
