The Tempest by William Shakespeare. In Shakespeare's The Tempest, Prospero, robbed of his title as Duke of Milan, knows the way of the world. Antonio and Alonso treacherously set Prospero and his young daughter (Miranda) adrift on a small, leaky boat without a sail.

“O Brave New World That Has Such People In It!”

The list of quotations from Shakespeare in Brave New World refers to the large number of quotations in the dystopian novel by Aldous Huxley , Brave New World , which are derived from the plays and other works of William Shakespeare.

I have seen rather compelling arguments that Brave New World is basically just one massive allusion or parody of The Tempest. One slightly less obvious than The Tempest though, admittedly, still somewhat overt. Of all the Shakespearian characters John could choose as a role model, he has to go with Othello.

The speaker is Miranda, the daughter of Prospero, the former Duke of Milan. Prospero entrusted his kingdom to his brother Antonio so Prospero would be free to study magic. The Oxford English Dictionary tells us that the word "brave" as used in Shakespeare's time meant not only bold, but also showy or finely dressed, something that dazzled the senses and was often used as a word of approval or praise.
