Gonzalo states We are people of our own minds and no one elses by this Gonzalo is telling everyone that no one can control what someone sees or does This is true unless one is using magic to alter the minds and reality of anyone under the influence of magic In the Tempest by William Shakespeare Prospero uses magic to alter the reality and delude the minds of characters Love or guilt is a form of magic that naturally occurs in ones life Prospero creates another magic that is placed in the audiences mind when he asks them to become the master magicians Alonso and Gonzalos minds are deluded by Prosperos spells to make them unaware of what is happening around them or aware of something out of the ordinary and Caliban is affected by Prosperos spells physically Gonzalo sees the things happening around him through a new prespective because of the spell that makes him see everything in a good light Because of this spell Gonzalo states that their clothes are better than new and that they are not stained with salt water Gonzalo also brings up that the island is in excellent shape and is adequate for living on Antonio and Sebastian tell Gonzalo he is lying about the clothes and the island being in such fantastic shape They tell him this because they are not affected by the spell that Gonzalo is under Spells dont always affect a person directly but it still makes a person see their reality in a different perspective Alonso is fooled by Prosperos magic too but it is not directly aimed towards Alonso Because of the magic that put Ferdinand in a glen where no one could see him Alonso thinks that Ferdinand drowned at sea Alonso thinks that Ferdinand is dead because no one saw Ferdinand make it to land safe This is because Prospero used magic directly on Ferdinand but not directly on Alonso
