Thank you.

2) The tempest was raised (synonym? caused, provoked)by Prospero, a magician who lives (?) on the island with his daughter Miranda.
3) Prospero confesses Miranda that he was the rightful (synonym) duke of Milan but he, as he was more interested in the study of magic than in the affairs of the state, his brother deposed him and set him adrift on a small boat (synonym) together with her three-year daughter Miranda.
4) They were stranded on an enchanted island, where the witch Sykorax had taken (found?) refuge. The island was not inhabited by Sykorax's son (?).
