"And it is Shakespeare who gives us, as members of his audience, his island, as one would give a child an apple, but with the further hope that we will not stop with eating the apple, but will use its seeds to create for ourselves new seas and even more enchanted islands.
"Shakespeare's The Tempest" Frye (305)
Again, I was struck by the poetic words Frye managed. I hated this entire article until the end when he gave this fabulous conclusion. Comparing Shakespeare's literary creation to the seeds of an apple is a beautiful image. It reminds us why we read and write. We read to see others creations and we write to imagine our own, in hopes of sharing that image with others. It's a wonderful cycle, just like the cycle of the apple.
