Would you say that Prospero has a certain kind of control over Miranda and how she views things?
Sure Prospero has a certain kind of control over his daughter Miranda. First, he is her father; and the onlyperson she had in the island to learn from. Secondly, he has some magical powers. Very thing Miranda knew or come to know was through her father...so every thing she sees has a kind of her father's interpretation on it. And also, his magical power made her fell in love.
